Phase I Research

An essential component of the Catalyst advantage is its relationship with its sister company Healthcare Discoveries Inc. , a division of the Catalyst Pharma Group. With a 110+ bed Phase I unit in San Antonio, Healthcare Discoveries provides the bed capacity your clinical study requires, when you need it.

The Phase 1 site is fully staffed with licensed nurses, phlebotomists, registered dieticians, lab technicians and paramedics. Healthcare Discoveries offers select patient populations including subjects that are asthmatic, elderly, renal impaired and ESRD, obese, diabetic, hypercholesterolemic, etc. Catalyst and Healthcare Discoveries together provide the perfect foundation and a smooth transition from Phase I to Phase II clinical studies. This continuity of service and project management ensures that each client's product development program begins and stays on track.
