TCG Leads the Way in Global CNS Clinical Trials

Advances in Technology Help Better Determine Which Drugs Are Successful in CNS Trials

NEWARK, DE--(Marketwire - December 17, 2009) - The Cognition Group (TCG) has updated its hardware for the Signal Enhancement System (SES). This technological enhancement will allow patient interviews to be recorded and viewed in a more precise, higher quality format and will further improve international clinical trials.


The Cognition Group (TCG) will be presenting its findings on "Rater Traning" at the The International Society for CNS Clinical Trials and Methodology next week in Washington D.C from February 22-24th at the Fairmont.


In Rater Training, TCG provides a range of programs from live investigator meeting settings to fully online e-learning programs, as well as a combination of both. Our activities include self-paced web training activities that allow raters to train before the Investigator Meeting (IM), with the IM that follows, providing a forum for targeted training. We have developed premier global programs providing training and certification to investigators in 46 countries and 25 languages. Translations of training materials, subtitling of videos, and cultural adaptations are standard across these programs. All content is provided by expert trainers, many of them Key Opinion Leaders in their field. This high level of input is supported by a world class in-house team of multimedia experts, backed by experienced project management and technology.


Our global experience spans nearly 1,000 sites in over 45 countries. We have experience in a number of indications including ADHD, Alzheimer's disease, bipolar disorder, depression, Parkinson's disease, schizophrenia and psychotic disorders. We work closely with our expert advisors and trainers globally including: Herbert Meltzer (Advisory Board chair); Robert Bilder, Roger Bullock, Joe Calabrese, Roy Chengappa, Jeffrey Cummings; Dawn Velligan, Mary Sano, Adam Brickman, Hubert Fernandez, Phil Harvey; Scott Kollins; Christopher Randolph, Jill Rasmussen, Luis Ramirez, Martha Sajatovic, and David Sheehan.
