Clinical Trials

Reducing risk in clinical trials with more reliable results.

Clinical trial evaluations of drug efficacy and safety are particularly challenging when dealing with the Central Nervous System. Success hinges on having smart trial designs, highly sensitive tests, reliable ratings, and accurate data.

Combining these essentials, study teams increase their chances for successful trials and can make earlier and more informed decisions about their therapeutic drug candidates.

Cogstate solutions guide thousands of researchers across many indications and all phases of development. With our sensitive, rapid, and reliable computerized digital cognitive assessments, proven rater training and data quality programs, and study design insights from leading scientists, we help clinical trial partners optimize outcomes.
