Clinical Pharmacology Trial Unit

The CPTU in Huddinge has more than 30 years’ experience of planning and conducting clinical trials in phase 1-2, both investigator-initiated and industry sponsored. We work in accordance with Good Clinical Practice (ICH-GCP) and emphasize subject safety and quality. Our physicians and research nurses/study-coordinators have an extensive experience of Clinical trials. Resident physicians are trained at the unit.

The CPTU is a small, well organized and flexible trial unit. The staff is highly skilled, competent and passionate about high-quality trials. We conduct out-patient trials and trials with up to five simultaneous in-patients.

The CPTU is authorized by the Medical Products Agency to conduct clinical trials where a drug for the first time is given to human subjects, so called first-in-human (FiH) trials. We also provide Clinical Pharmacology services regarding clinical trial design and pharmacokinetics.

Services provided by the CPTU include:

  • Trial design
  • Drug metabolic and interaction trials
  • Firtst-in-human trials
  • Exploratory efficacy trials
  • Pharmacokinetic trials
  • Pharmacogenetic trials
  • Pharmacokinetic analyses and modelling
  • Dosing advice in early phase trials
  • Medical monitoring
  • Bioanalytical services

Studies are performed in collaboration with academic research groups and/or pharmaceutical companies. We prefer to be engaged early in the project in order to contribute to the development of a protocol that facilitates smooth and efficient conduct of the trial.

Our services can contribute to the succes of your clinical research project.
