Center Overview

OCT is your clinical trial experts in Russia, Europe and the US.

OCT is a contract research organization (CRO) offering full-scale clinical trial support for Phases I-IV to pharmaceutical, biotech, and nutraceutical companies interested in conducting clinical trials in Eastern and Central Europe and the US. The company has offices in Russia, Ukraine, Baltic States, Bulgaria, Belarus, Georgia, Germany, US. OCT delivers rapid patient recruitment, ensures quick and efficient addressing of regulatory issues and provides solid logistical support to reduce trial set-up time. Our hands-on region-specific experience across the broad range of clinical trial management activities is your guarantee to a successful clinical trial.

OCT collaborates with highly qualified investigators (sites) with prior experience in conducting GCP-compliant clinical trials across various therapeutic areas. We ensure the integrity of your clinical trial by selecting investigators experienced in conducting industry-sponsored GCP compliant clinical trials and providing them with the support of our monitors they need at each stage of a study. Our local monitors are medical doctors (MD) experienced in conducting industry-driven clinical trials and building reciprocally appreciative professional relationships with the investigators to make your trial flow as smooth as possible. Our clients benefit from access to a large pool of mostly drug-naive patients, rapid patient enrollment and high level of patient compliance due to centralized healthcare systems, and competitive costs. OCT’s established regulatory interface with the authorities allows expediting review times. The net effect of these factors for the client is both cost-saving and the reduction of time necessary to complete the trial. Besides clinical studies of drug candidates for biotech and pharmaceutical companies, OCT conducts clinical studies of nutritional products. OCT is the first CRO conducting such trials in Russia in compliance with ICH-GCP.

We are committed to providing flexible service options for our clients, who may choose to outsource to us only a part of management of the clinical trials: regulatory submissions, logistical support, medical GCP-compliant monitoring, medical writing, QA/Co-monitoring. Importantly, we can rapidly join a study at any stage to provide fast patient recruitment when the study falls behind schedule.
