  • (1888PressRelease) August 12, 2010 - Numerous Dietary Supplement and Natural Health Product companies from North America have taken advantage of this program till date. But response from Europe has been so far lukewarm. Nutraceutical companies are often faced with the dilemma of type of clinical research to be conducted to substantiate label claims given the limited resources.

    Vedic's Assistance Program involves a limited time offer for a free Clinical Trial Design and Feasibility Study for any two of a supplement or functional food company's existing products on the market. Given a claim statement, Vedic Lifesciences' Clinical Operations, Medical Writing & Regulatory teams will design a small exploratory human study and assess the feasibility of doing such a study in North America, Eastern Europe or Asia. The trial designed can be used for publications or submissions to the regulatory authorities. The human data would be compliant to Good Clinical Practices (GCP) and meet all international standards. The Trial Design and Feasibility Study under this program typically entail a 50 to 100 hr commitment depending on trial complexity. Teams across several sites / offices share their medical and regulatory expertise absolutely free under this program. Jayesh Chaudhary, CEO, revealed, "Existing clients from US and Canada are also very pleased with this service that supports the marketing claims for their products." Following this free consultation, the further decision to conduct the study with Vedic Lifesciences or any other CRO is entirely optional. The clinical trial design and feasibility become the property of the food supplement company.
