Segments The company has three segments: Clinical Research Services (CRS), PAREXEL Consulting and Medical Communications Services (PCMS), and Perceptive Informatics (Perceptive). CRS The CRS segment offers complete services for the design, initiation and management of clinical trial programs, a critical element in obtaining regulatory approval for biopharmaceutical products. The company has performed services in connection with clinical trials in most therapeutic areas, including Oncology, Cardiology, Infectious Diseases, Neurology, Allergy/Immunology, Endocrinology/Metabolism, Gastroenterology, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Orthopedics, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Pulmonology, Rheumatology, Dermatology, Genitourinary, Ophthalmology, and Transplantation. Its multi-disciplinary clinical trials group examines a product’s existing preclinical and clinical data to design clinical trials to provide evidence of the product’s safety and efficacy. CRS can manage various aspects of clinical trials including study protocol design; Case Report Form (CRF) design; site and investigator recruitment; patient enrollment; study monitoring and data collection; data management; biostatistics and programming; report writing; medical services; project management; and clinical logistics. Clinical trials and observational studies are monitored and conducted by CRS in adherence with Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and Good Pharmacoepidemiological Practice (GPP), respectively. Early Phase The Early Phase group of CRS includes the early stages of clinical testing, when a product is first evaluated to assess the safety and efficacy of the product. These tests vary from ‘first-in-man’ to ‘dose-ranging’ to ‘proof of concept’ studies in Phases I and IIa of development. The Early Phase group of CRS offers clients a one-stop service where studies are performed in healthy volunteers, as well as in patients of various disease populations. The support services include project and program management, drug development consulting, medical writing, handling of investigational products, data management, and biostatistical and bioanalytical services. The company’s international network of Early Phase operations includes operations in Berlin, Germany; Baltimore, Maryland (U.S.); Glendale, California (U.S.); Bloemfontein, South Africa; and Harrow, the U.K. A bioanalytical laboratory, which performs drug analyses in accordance with good laboratory practices, a system of managed controls for laboratory and research organizations to ensure the results, is also located in Bloemfontein.
