Access to patients

Our exclusive access to FMCNA, including nearly 2,500 dialysis clinics, allows us to reach nearly 200,000 ESRD patients and hundred of thousands of CKD patients.

No other clinical development services provider has a more intimate understanding of patients affected by kidney disease and its comorbid conditions than we do.
