Mount Arlington, NJ (PRWEB) January 5, 2008
Exodon LLC (http://www.exodon.com), a leading international clinical research company, offers an innovative program that matches patients to promising new treatment options in their area. This proprietary system, the VALIDATE System®, stores de-identified patient data and then finds all applicable clinical trials that a patient could potentially benefit from and delivers that information free of charge to patients around the world.
"Unlike other purely educational resources and websites, Exodon matches patients with new diagnostic and treatment options. We also securely archive patient data so that future trials can also be considered," said Gerald Tramontano, Ph.D., Director of Clinical Research of Exodon. "We want patients and doctors alike to consider clinical trials as a viable option when discussing new treatments and our system provides patients the ability to access these options."
Exodon's proprietary database patient recruitment solution is unique in the clinical trial industry. The company partners with individual doctors, patients, support groups, hospices, hospitals and other healthcare organizations who are interested in taking part in clinical trials. Through alliances with these groups, Exodon is able to help people with various disabling medical conditions such as migraine, cancer, dementia, hepatitis, and various pain disorders, including cancer related pain. And, this partnership allows these organizations to empower their patients or members. Partners of Exodon can receive additional revenue by being a referral, screening or study center for these clinical research trials.
"We believe that support groups and hospitals should also be involved in educating their patients on the availability of various clinical trials offering patients treatment options that would not otherwise be available," continued Dr. Tramontano. "It is a service that the institutions can offer to their patients to increase their treatment options. In doing so, hospitals, clinical centers, support groups and even hospices are opening opportunities of improving not only their patient's health, but their lifestyle as well."
Exodon is an international clinical research organization which specializes in patient and investigator recruitment services. We have a robust network of pre-consented patients and researchers ready and available for entry into clinical trial research studies.
We reduce the patient/site recruitment time and increase patient retention through our proprietary system, the VALIDATE System®. Most of our sites participate in our VALIDATE System® network resulting in a database that enables real-time access to real de-identified medical records. This enables Exodon to search for pre-qualified patients meeting the study's inclusion or exclusion criteria. Its website is located at http://www.exodon.com.
