Berlin, Bremen (Germany) | 21 May 2014

The German organisations Sacura GmbH, Conelis e.V. and GCP-Services International Ltd. & Co. KG launched a campaign to support young, small biotech/biopharmaceutical companies engaged in the development of new medicinal products and therapies in human health care.

The three supporters see young entrepreneurs with excellent products in the pipeline of their companies and with exciting visions. However they are often not aware of the manifold potential pitfalls in the run-up to their very first clinical trial. These companies get the opportunity to introduce their project and can win a complete consultation day with seasoned clinicians, project managers, data managers and consultants with long-standing experience in international clinical development for the planning of their clinical trial.

The International Clinical Trials Day is the special occasion for this campaign is, which reminds us of the first clinical trial in medical history. This first study was planned, initiated and conducted by James Lind, a Scottish physician, in 1747. The study was an unblinded, 6 arm clinical trial in patients (Royal Navy sailors) with scurvy and was stopped after six days when they ran out of Lind’s “investigational medicinal product”, lemons and oranges.

Over the same period of six days young biotech/biopharmaceutical companies can apply to win the face-to-face experts’ advice. The application is an easy procedure with minimal effort. Please visit for background information and contact details.

Good luck!

P.S. Recruitment period extended ...

That’s life – clinical trials are often amended. The board approved an amendment to prolong the recruitment period. Due to request we will prolong the time for applications by 13 days until
8-Jun-2014, 24:00.

Additional Investigational Medicinal Product (lemons and oranges) will be provided. So, good luck for your applications!
