A full range of research tools
Epidemiological studies evaluate the factors that lead to disease and other negative health outcomes. When you need to substantiate safety of your product for a new target market, to protect against claims, or for other strategies, clinical trials are neither the most cost effective nor scientifically valid studies for this purpose. Epidemiological research studies, such as case-control, retrospective or prospective cohort, cross-sectional, and ecological studies offer a cost effective approach that can confirm your product’s safety in relation to specific health outcomes.
Epidemiological studies may also be required as evidence for an IND or NDA application or to substantiate FTC claims. These studies provide valuable evidence regarding your product’s mechanisms of action, safety, potential clinical efficacy, and relationship to health outcomes in large communities. These studies can also help to identify potential avenues for further research you have not yet considered.
Epidemiological Research Services Include
Need to investigate claims about a risk associated with a product ingredient?
Case control studies offer a safe, ethical way to evaluate risk among users of your products, allowing you to substantiate your product's safety scientifically.
Our team conducts both prospective and retrospective cohort studies, allowing you to study the health needs and outcomes associated with us of your products or brand as a whole.
Cross-sectional studies offer a snapshot of the environment. These can be used to demonstrate the absence of a relationship between ingredients or products and health outcomes.
They can also be used to learn more about the type of people using your products and what health conditions they are addressing.
If the body of scientific literature is unclear, contradictory, or lacking when it comes to your product's safety and efficacy, a meta analysis can provide clarity with the highest level of scientific evidence.
Meta-analyses on key ingredients, formulations, or products offer a fast and inexpensive alternative to conducting yet another clinical trial.
