Cerbomed GmbH Selects Clinicalprojects International GmbH To Run Its International Epilepsy Trial

Cerbomed GmbH, an innovative medical device company concentrated on the development of new technologies for neuromodulation, has selected the CRO clinicalprojects international GmbH (CPI) to drive its multi-center European epilepsy trial.

CPI began assisting cerbomed with this international study in late November 2011. The trial will investigate the use of transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation (t-VNS®) for the treatment of drug-resistant epilepsy.

"We awarded this clinical trial to CPI primarily because of their expertise in the area of neuromodulation, as well as the very positive feedback we received from CPI's reference clients" commented Prof. Dr. med. Jens Ellrich, Chief Medical Officer at cerbomed. "We believe that CPI is a dynamic and proactive CRO, and because they are a relatively small organization, we felt that they best understood the needs of a small and innovative medical device company".

"We are delighted that cerbomed has entrusted us with their trial and look forward to a successful collaboration with the cerbomed team" said Jörg Breitkopf, Managing Director of CPI. "cerbomed's decision to award CPI this important project is a further confirmation of our growing reputation among medical device companies as a highly regarded international CRO for clinical trial support."
