Healthy Volunteers for Clinical Studies

Convex Clinical Research Institution constantly maintains and develops a database of healthy volunteers ready to participate in clinical trials and medical device investigations. On a weekly basis we communicate with our study participants to ensure their future interest in participating within our clinical projects. With a database of over 1800 potential healthy volunteers we meet our sponsors’ expectations of recruitment strategy and study goals. We reach healthy volunteers recruitment within timelines given by our sponsor companies. We focus on excellent communication with our participants, which we believe, it is the key factor for successful study subject recruitment and retention. Our clinical research team helps build relationships with participants and ensure their needs and requirements are met. On a project basis we gather healthy volunteers’ feedback about their experiences and improve our services so that we improve their hospital stay with us. During the entire course of the study, volunteers’ satisfaction is our primary focus. Our healthy subject database includes over 1800 non-smoking subjects. It consists of students and young people representing 84 % of our participants and a second group of 55+ aged (postmenopausal and elderly) participants. Please contact us with a request and we can share more information on our healthy subject population.

Convex Healthy Volunteers Clinical Studies

Being a participant, it is completely normal to be concerned about your safety. That is why here at Convex Clinical Research Center, the welfare of our participants is our top priority. The initial documentation for every clinical trial we undertake is submitted to the Bulgarian Drug Agency and to the Central Ethics Committee. As independent regulatory bodies they review the available information and ensure that each trial maintains the highest levels of safety before giving their approval. Prior to any on-site assessments or screening procedures, you will be asked to sign an Informed Consent Form to confirm that you completely understand what is expected of you as a clinical trial volunteer. One of our physicians/ investigators will be assisting you in the process of signing and will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the clinical study, your safety and the possible side effects.
