We have an experienced team of physicians, clinic and support staff dedicated to making our participants' experience as positive and comfortable as possible. Participant safety is our top priority at all times.
The San Antonio Clinical Research Unit is a customized site capable of meeting the ever changing requirements for clinical trials. The site’s facilities include 120 available beds, pharmacy and drug storage, an on-site PK laboratory, clinical laboratory and a 48-channel Mortara ECG system. Since 2008 the site has conducted 400 Phase I studies. Our experienced staff provides expert delivery of services to safely and efficiently manage early-phase studies from First-in-Human to proof of concept. This includes all services such as an active volunteer database, data collection fully aligned to FDA guidelines, electronic data capture and regulatory approvals.
The unit has 120 single beds, with a private bath area in each room. We also have an ICU ward with 10 hospital beds, and an on-site pharmacy with National IV certification.
While participation in a clinical study is voluntary, you may be paid for your time and travel. Compensation is based on the length of the study, the number of overnight stays in our clinic and the number of out-patient visits you attend. You may also be compensated for some procedures depending upon the study. All payments we make for study participation have been approved by an Independent Review Board (IRB). The method and frequency of payment will be described in detail in the Informed Consent Form (ICF).
Even if you don’t qualify for a particular study, you may be able to refer a friend or family member. If approved by an Independent Review Board (IRB), ICON may be able to provide you a referral bonus of up to $500 for each qualified study participant that you refer. To qualify for the payment, the person you refer must:
• Be a first-time volunteer
• Mention your name when applying over the phone
• Fully participate in the study
All payments from ICON must be approved by an IRB before any payment may be made to you. Please contact us for more information.
