Steve Trevisan, Accelovance CEO, added: “Early phase oncology support and focus remains underserved by most CROs, and sponsors are actively looking for CRO partners like Accelovance that offer tangible differentiators and, most importantly, are able to exceptionally execute these trials in the most expeditious, cost sensitive way while ensuring patient safety.

“We will continue to invest in oncology-dedicated staff, expand our strategic site and network relationships, and continuously assess our technology and processes to ensure we effectively execute and provide value to our sponsors.”

The acquisition adds to Accelovance's European and service expansion efforts over the last two years with its buys of providers Altair Clinical, from the U.K., and Amsterdam’s Clinquest.

That deal gave Accelovance new capabilities in cardiovascular, dermatology, nutrition and urology, plus outposts in Illinois and Florida.
