German-based Contract Research Organization Opens US Office to Expand Clinical Study Services in Central and Eastern Europe for American Pharma and Biotech

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- (Verum), a full-clinical service, German-based contract research organization (CRO) with outstanding experience in Central and Eastern European countries (CEE), has opened a new office in Carlsbad, Calif. The company opened the office to make its clinical trial services more readily available to clients in the U.S. and North America. By conducting clinical trials with Verum in CEE countries, clients will benefit from faster patient enrollment, more affordable trials, and the ease of working with a CRO with regional expertise that practices Western standards for clinical trials and bridges cultural differences.


Kristi Clark, an industry veteran, will be managing the new U.S. office, in charge of day-to-day operations, new business acquisition, project management and marketing. Clark has experience in global project management and more than 20 years of pharma industry experience, having worked at both large and mid-size CROs, including Quintiles, Parexel and Synteract. Her prior experience included a nearly two year stay in the Czech Republic opening an office in Prague.  

Verum, experienced in working with American pharma and biotech companies and as a sub-contractor to CROs not present in the CEE region, recently ran a U.S. government-sponsored trial and has received commendations for the high quality of its data from Columbia University. Verum can also assist with registering drugs for commercial use in CEE countries and provides full logistic service, something other CROs often cannot do. Verum has more than 100 office based employees operating out of eight locations, including its Munich headquarters, and everyone speaks English. Clients are also afforded the choice between U.S. or German based contracts. The company offers therapeutic specialties in cardiovascular, neurology, psychiatry, CNS, oncology and pain, among others.

"I founded this company on Western principles and our longevity is proof of our hard-work, diligence and attention to detail," explained Christian Sacher, Verum CEO. "We are well-versed in running trials in Central and Eastern European and former Soviet bloc countries because in many cases we were the first to do so; our goal is to bring more client trials to CEE countries so they can see the difference faster enrollment and regional expertise provides."     

The company was founded and is still privately owned and driven by Christian Sacher and Jutta Minkner (CFO), two industry pioneers with more than 25 years experience running clinical trials. In 1992, Verum started operations in CEE countries, including some countries that were untouched by clinical trials. Recently Sacher discussed the process of establishing Western principles in the region in an article published in Pharmaceutical Compliance Monitor. Verum has substantial contacts with local authorities, and is known in CEE for flexible and responsive services. More information can be found at
