Clinical Research Alliance


From the beginning, at Althian we knew that Mexico was clearly positioning itself as a hub for clinical research on a variety of medical specialties from oncology to endocrinology, from hepatology to cardiology, etc. But, although for many potential clients, this was a great advantage, there was also a clear downside.

The problem has certainly not been the relative abundance of research sites and PIs for Phase II, III and IV trials. Rather, it was the inconvenience of dealing with a large variety of companies, each handling compliance and regulatory matters in a slightly different way.  

The Solution

To address these needs of Sponsors and CROs, at Althian, we helped develop the Clinical Research Alliance of Mexico, which has brought together the best research sites in the country into one unified alliance, focusing on delivering high quality research services through standardization.


The Alliance is a group of independently owned sites who share data to improve their performance. One of the advantages of being part of this Alliance is the opportunity to network. By networking with other sites, new project opportunities arise all the time.


Another advantage of the Alliance is that its members can work with our trusted IRBs (Independent Review Board). Our IRBs are distinguished by its performance, quick response times, excellent oversight, among other criteria, and this helps speed up the regulatory process, making it easier for Sponsors to start their projects on time.

By having joined forces in a national network, the Alliance will offer the most comprehensive directory of clinical research sites as well as maintaining the biggest and most diverse private database of patients in Mexico in almost every therapeutic area.
