About Clinical Trials of Texas, Inc.
Welcome to the Clinical Trials of Texas website! Established in 2001,
Clinical Trials of Texas (CTT) is the fastest growing multi-specialty research organization in San Antonio. Our unique business model has proven to produce high quality data for sponsors and contract research organizations (CROs) while
creating great opportunities for our staff and investigators. CTT has established an extensive network of experienced, board-certified investigators who are dedicated to excellence in clinical research and understand the importance of
involved oversight. As a quality Multi-Specialty Research Organization (MSRO), CTT contracts with experienced research physicians who are knowledgeable of the Code of Federal Regulations and Good Clinical Practices and are well accomplished in
conducting clinical research protocols while adhering to sponsor goals and timelines.
CTT is capable of conducting Phase I-IV pharmaceutical and device studies in a wide variety of medical disciplines. As an experienced, high quality MSRO, CTT ensures compliance with sponsors’ protocols and manages all of the regulatory
submissions and documentation required by sponsors and institutional review boards. The staff at CTT is regularly trained on all GCP guidelines and FDA regulations. Our QA/QC Coordinator performs frequent study audits to help ensure data
quality and assist in preparation for monitoring visits. Most study coordinators are ACRP certified or are working to become certified. Additionally, CTT has a dedicated subject recruitment department that reaches out to the community to
find qualified and compliant study volunteers. Having dedicated recruiters helps to ensure that recruitment goals are met and allows coordinators to focus on subject safety, protocol compliance and data entry.
CTT prides itself on being technologically advanced. CTT has developed its own proprietary Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS) that stores all subject records, forecasts protocol specific visit windows and tracks subject study
involvement in all studies. CTT has extensive experience with electronic data capture and transmission through any medium required, having extra phone lines dedicated solely to data transmission and broadband internet connection for
high-speed web-based data transfer.
Speed and precision in all aspects of conducting clinical protocols, from start up to completion, are what makes CTT one of today’s leading research centers in South Texas. We welcome the chance to discuss our capabilities with
sponsors and CROs and look forward to developing long-term working relationships through many new study opportunities.
Research Facility Description
CTT now has a 15,000 square foot facility dedicated to clinical research. In addition to Phase II-IV protocols, CTT now has a 10-bed Phase I facility for protocols requiring overnight stays. Depending on the study phase and
protocol requirements, subject visits are conducted either on site, in hospitals or at one of the investigator sites. Our facility has eight fully equipped exam rooms and a lab complete with ultra low freezers (-80° & -40°),
standard and refrigerated centrifuges, and temperature monitored refrigerators on backup power for drug and vaccine storage. Ambient drugs are kept in a climate controlled, access-controlled storage room. Other on site medical equipment includes 12 lead ECG machines,
Tanita digital weight scales, a medical-grade programmable treadmill, crash cart, AED, oxygen, Doppler, ABI equipment and multiple draw stations. All medical equipment at CTT is calibrated and/or inspected by an authorized outside vendor
on at least an annual basis, and all OSHA standards including biohazard collection and removal are upheld.
The following equipment can be found at our investigative sites: Crash cart, bone density imaging scanner, ultrasound/sonogram capabilities, colposcopy, urodynamics, treadmill, cardiac echo, temperature monitored refrigerator and
freezers, centrifuges, x-ray capabilities, auditory and visual testing capabilities, spirometry, pulmonary function tests, emergency care and lab drawing stations.
Phase I Facility Details
CTT’s phase-I unit has separate sleeping and showering facilities for men and women, a kitchen for dietician prepared meals, a beautiful lounge area and a dining facility. CTT has Phase-I experienced staff who provide outstanding
patient care and strict adherence to sponsor protocol requirements. Smaller cohorts of 10 subjects allow for accuracy and close subject observation which helps ensure subject safety and more accurate data for our sponsors. Finally, because
CTT works with an extensive network of physicians, CTT is capable of conducting Phase I studies in multiple therapeutic areas.
