Aptus Clinical

 Aptus Clinical is a specialist UK- based oncology clinical research organisation which helps life science companies to optimise their clinical development strategies and effectively transform promising molecules into valued medicines.

What makes Aptus Clinical different is our flexibility – our clients benefit from our network of highly experienced and skilled experts from all technical disciplines, but only pay for what they need, when they need it. Our scientists have global expertise in all aspects of drug development so no challenge is too great, and being highly professional, they integrate seamlessly into a client organisation. This gives our clients all the benefits of an in-house clinical department, but at 
a significantly lower cost. In addition, our well-established relationships with some of the world’s leading experimental cancer centres, access to large patient populations and flexible arrangements to support optimal project delivery are just a few of the benefits to be gained from working with Aptus Clinical.

Whether you need one-off consultancy support, clinical SOP implementation, expert medical or scientific input on a short or long term basis, or a full trial programme, we’d love to hear from you. 

Censo Biotechnologies

Censo Biotechnologies Ltd is a stem cell technology company providing human cells and contract research services for drug discovery, toxicity testing and cell banking.

The company has the capabilities to generate induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from large cohorts of individuals and use the potential of these cells to create virtually any cell in the human body.

By developing cell-based models of disease using cells from a diverse range of tissue donors, the company supports the development of new targeted treatments for disease. Its major focus is the generation of novel data on drug efficacy and drug response variation for a given population.

The company was founded in 2016, through the merger of Roslin Cellab and Roslin Cell Sciences, and has facilities in both Edinburgh and Cambridge, UK.

CLINICAL ACCELERATOR

Clinical Accelerator conducts all phases of clinical trials for pharma, biotech and medtech companies. We have a very simple mission: to accelerate clinical development projects and to reduce their cost appreciably for our clients. We use several strategies to achieve very compact timelines in our clinical studies: - optimization of study design (only necessary outcome measures and end-points, right number of patients, optimal follow-up duration) - selection of effective investigative sites located in our region of operation. All our sites, conducting trials to the highest standards of GCP, have a large patient recruiting capacity and a proven track record of efficient timely recruitment of qualified patients. - accelerated start up (fast regulatory and IRB/EC approval times, streamlined logistics, expedited contracting, fast site activation, USA IND or EU CTA are optional in our region of operation) - effective patient enrolment and retention (dedicated department, proven region-specific patient recruitment strategies) We are specialists in effective and timely patient recruitment, and commit to achieving patient enrolment targets within fixed timelines. We routinely rescue stalled clinical trials. We are able to reduce the cost of our clinical projects significantly due to our: - flat organizational hierarchy, reasonable service rates and very modest internal overhead costs - commitment to agreed fixed budgets (rare need for change orders) - modest investigator grants and low hospital overheads in our region of operation (very large savings can be achieved in many therapeutic areas) - use of as few locations and as few investigative sites as possible without compromising patient recruitment rates (this limits set-up costs and lowers per patient cost) - short study timelines, which lead to reduced management costs - potential risk sharing (optional strategy) The cost of our studies is among the most attractive globally. We commit to our budgets and fix them for our clients.
