The Kansas Medical Center University has recently established a new clinical research center. This clinical research center is expected to be one of the best centers of the country. It is handling at-least 25 to 30 Phase 1 cancer drug and treatment trials at once.
The Kansas City Star has mentioned in a report that the clinical Research Center started admitting patients last week and it is in the process of carrying out 10 Phase 1 trials.
These patients will be checked up by doctors and go through tests, as well as drug therapies. Raymond Perez, who is the medical director of the clinical research center, said that, "We'll pick up the pace of the activities here in by having a facility of getting people to think, have conversations and relax which is the first phase of our research." The purpose behind this is to find out how a drug is metabolized and whether it has any side effects.
These trials will be mostly related to cancer drugs. The other studies will involve diseases like Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, liver disease as well as other severe medical conditions. This Clinical Research Center has been donated by the Hall Family Foundation.
