What we do at IXICO

We provide neuroscience expertise, neuroimaging analysis and global operational support for CNS clinical trials.

The power of neuroimaging

Neuroimaging, with its ability to visualize extraordinary information about the structural, functional and biochemical characteristics of the human brain, is a powerful tool in CNS clinical research. 

As well as providing key biomarker endpoints to measure therapeutic effects, neuroimaging allows drug development sponsors to gain critical efficiencies by maximizing the statistical power of trial sample sizes.

Due to the complexities of therapy-specific biomarker selection, patient recruitment, analysis methodologies and multi-center logistics, it is challenging for sponsors to translate the real value of neuroimaging into successful operationalization and trial outcomes.

With our specialist neuroscience knowledge, AI-driven innovation and robust operational infrastructure, IXICO solutions are specifically designed to enable sponsors to address these challenges and realize the full power of imaging biomarkers in their CNS clinical trials.

Early Phase Clinical Development

Early Phase

We have extensive experience in definition and delivery of early-phase clinical development (Phase I & II clinical trials). Our rigorous patient safety screening and operational practices go hand-in-hand with our ability to be flexible around your trial design and data analytics requirements.
