A primary service is helping their clients manage, process and submit medical imaging portions of their submissions relating to their clinical trials to regulators, primarily the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and comparable European agencies, to evaluate product efficacy and safety. BioClinica has provided services to more than 130 firms in connection with over 2,000 clinical partners since its founding in 1990.

It has an experienced, highly competent management team, who, along with Board members, own about 9% of outstanding shares. BIOC has worked with the world's leading bio-pharmaceutical companies including three that are Dow Jones Industrial Average components: Johnson & Johnson, Merck, and Pfizer.
BioClinica has recently completed the integration of its two most recent acquisitions both of which should be accretive in 2010. BIOC reported positive results for the third quarter ending 9/30.
The Report states that BioClinica faces a number of risks including the uncertainty facing the entire pharmaceutical industry as a result of proposed health reform legislation.
