Vince & Associates Clinical Research Continues Collaboration with Cambridge Cognition for Electronic Visual Analog Scales for Hu

Overland Park, Kansas - Vince & Associates Clinical Research, a premier provider of early phase clinical research services with over 100 beds, continues its collaboration with Cambridge Cognition on electronic Visual Analog Scales (eVAS) for Human Abuse Liability (HAL) clinical trials.

Secondary to the guidance documents released in recent years by the FDA on abuse liability assessments for new chemical entities and abuse deterrent formulations, there has been an increased demand for HAL clinical trials. In response to the guidance documents, Vince & Associates formed a collaboration with Cambridge Cognition, the global leader in touchscreen cognitive assessments for clinical trials, and together these companies have been successfully conducting HAL trials for years.

Dr. Brad Vince, CEO and Medical Director of Vince & Associates, states "the software platform for cloud-based electronic visual analog scales created by Cambridge Cognition enables Vince & Associates to provide its clients with high quality research data for human abuse liability trials."
