CRO for Clinical Trials in Spain

Sofpromed is a full-service contract research organization (CRO) headquartered in Spain. Thanks to its location, Sofpromed can provide local clinical trial management services in Spanish cities, for the pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device industries.

Pharma, biotechnology, and medical device companies in the United States, Europe, and Asia can hire Sofpromed services to conduct phase I-IV clinical trials in Spanish hospitals.

Thanks to its local expertise, Sofpromed helps international commercial sponsors to manage multicenter clinical trials in Spain quickly, efficiently, and compliantly.

One important advantage of subcontracting trial tasks with Sofpromed is the possibility of interacting with one single centralized contact point for the whole Spanish territory, which reduces operational costs and greatly simplifies management processes.

US, EU and Asian sponsors can benefit from delegating regulatory affairs, site selection, recruitment support, monitoring, data management, logistics, pharmacovigilance, and document translation work on a team of local experts, ensuring compliance with Spanish procedures and regulations.

Spain is a very attractive country to carry out clinical trials, due to the existence of highly experienced hospitals and investigators, proven research quality, high patient recruitment volumes, and fast study start-up (3 months as average from ethics committee and regulatory authority study submission to first patient in).

Spain is a country with a long tradition of high-quality clinical research, and clinical trial activity is growing more and more.

In fact, clinical trials in the early stages are growing steadily in Spain and already make up 51% of the total.

International sponsors will benefit from selecting Spain as destination for their clinical studies. The easiest way to enter the Spanish clinical research market is to partner with a CRO specialized in the local processes.
