Medical devices

Leading Clinical Research provides all of the services needed for clinical investigations of medical devices, whether the study aims at obtaining the CE marking or forms part of post-marketing surveillance.

There is a widespread misconception that there is no real difference between medical device and pharmaceutical studies.
