Specialization in unique diseases

Specialization in unique diseases

As the number of trials in lifestyle-related diseases, such as high blood pressure and diabetes, have decreased sharply, ever since Linical was founded in 2005 we have steadily taken on more and more contracts for immune diseases. We have cultivated a particularly high degree of knowledge and experience over many years in the area of lower gastrointestinal tract diseases like ulcerative colitis. One of the characteristics of Linical is our specialization in unique diseases such as this.
In recent years, Linical has won many contracts for trials with a high degree of difficulty, by narrowing down criteria for the selection of rare diseases and patients. As we have done in oncology, in this area too we have successfully moved beyond Japan to undertake contracts to conduct Asian trials involving both Korea and Taiwan. We are currently engaged in such projects.

We recognize that our clients have needs beyond the areas of oncology and CNS (Central Nervous System) diseases, and difficult trials are being demanded with increasing frequency. In some cases, when obtaining sufficient data in Japan is expected to be difficult, clients turn to other parts of Asia, so Linical strives to meet such needs.
Linical is committed to enhancing our capabilities to meet demands for even the most difficult kinds of clinical trials, so we would be more than happy to discuss your requirements with you.
