PDP Preferred Provider Agreement for Triclinium


Triclinium, a Clinical Research Organisation (CRO) headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa, has been selected as a Preferred Provider for clinical trial support services to 14 Product Development Partnerships (PDPs).

These PDPs are non-profit organisations mandated to research and deliver therapies and vaccines for diseases that commonly afflict the world’s poorer nations, including tuberculosis, malaria, HIV/AIDS, leishmaniasis and sleeping sickness. The 14 PDPs, which are all partially funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, have a rich combined product pipeline that will be developed in over 120 planned Phase I to IV clinical trials scheduled for initiation by Q4 2012.

“Triclinium is honoured to be one of only 6 Contract Research Organisations worldwide – and the only wholly African CRO – selected by the PDPs,” says Victor Strugo, founder and Managing Director of Triclinium.

“Having already worked extensively with 4 PDPs over the last 8 years, this Preferred Provider status significantly reaffirms our conscious commitment to supporting research focused on the major health issues and neglected diseases of our native continent. We look forward to supporting more PDP research into major global health challenges, in and beyond the 12 countries in which we already have research experience.”
