Care Access Acquires Brazil Research Site to Expand Decentralized Clinical Trial Capabilities to Latin America

This marks the company’s first major step in expanding its unique clinical trial delivery model across the globe

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Care Access, the world leader in decentralized clinical trials delivery, today announced the acquisition of Instituto Brasil de Pesquisa Clínica (IBPClin), a clinical trial center in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, as the first step to bring its decentralized clinical trial delivery model to Latin America, where hard-to-reach, underserved and traditionally underrepresented communities would gain unprecedented access to clinical trials.

Care Access has pioneered a unique clinical trial delivery model to decentralize the clinical research site and to take research to hard-to-reach patients, wherever they may be, through a combination of mobile research infrastructure, traveling clinical professionals, and virtual investigators. This approach has provided trial access for diverse and underserved communities across the United States, and has brought investment to healthcare infrastructure and increased the quality of care.

Over the last year, Care Access has made significant strides (leveraging Series C and Series D funding) to expand its capabilities for global clinical trials and the global regulatory ecosystem. The acquisition of IBPClin, one of the largest research centers in Latin America, is the first of many steps that Care Access is planning to announce that pave the path forward towards global decentralized trial delivery that reach more interested participants and achieve results on dramatically faster timelines.

“We’re on a path to achieve dramatically better and faster results for global clinical trials, with the intention to accelerate the approval process of new therapies and to bring more treatment options to healthcare. Our mission is to bring to life the future of clinical research, and IBPClin shares our vision to bring our unique DCT model to Latin America” said Ahmad Namvargolian, CEO and Co-Founder of Care Access. “A motivated world-class team, with the right level of support and the right resources, can make a dramatic impact – we look forward to seeing the fruits of this labor in the coming year.”

“Our industry is at a turning point as we build the infrastructure needed to bring potentially life-saving therapies and medicines to patients who otherwise wouldn’t have access,” said Dr. Luis Augusto Russo, co-CEO of IBPClin. “We know that, as part of Care Access, we will continue running clinical trials at the highest standards and then expand our opportunities, reach, and capabilities even further.”

IBPClin has conducted 160+ industry-sponsored research studies, enrolling over 7000 participants across 12 Brazilian states, and offers telemedicine, remote monitoring, and home care assistance for patients. Now, as part of Care Access, the research team can serve patients in Latin America with what has so far been US-only decentralized capabilities that can take complex research visits to any interested patient.
