Top 5 Reasons to Work with Oximio, Türkiye for your next Clinical Trial

When conducting clinical trials selecting the right location is key to success. Sponsors need to consider the strategic advantages that make a location an ideal hub for their ground-breaking medical research. 

In this article we explore the Top 5 Reasons for choosing Türkiye for your clinical trial and why partnering with Oximio can ensure a smooth operation from start to finish.

State of the Art Warehouse in Accessible Location:

1- State of the Art Warehouse in Accessible Location: 

Turkiye’s strategic geographical location, bridging Europe and Asia, provides easy access for researchers and sponsors. With well-connected transport links, including modern airports and a robust infrastructure, the country provides excellent routes for clinical trial operations. 

Oximio’s facility is situated in Izmir, on the country’s West Coast. We are perfectly placed for international shipping and access to Asia, the Middle East and Europe. With our 20-year experience in the Country and a state-of-the-art warehouse, we can provide a temperature control storage capacity of 4,730 m2. From ambient to ultra-low temperatures, the safety and integrity of pharmaceutical products is guaranteed. 

2- Access to Diverse Patient Pools 
A key factor in successful clinical trials is access to diverse and representative patient populations. Turkey boasts a population of more than 80 million. With this comes a rich demographic, encompassing various ethnicities and socioeconomic backgrounds. This diversity enhances study results and accelerates patient recruitment. 

At Oximio we understand that satisfying patient needs is essential to ensure the success of any trial. Attracting and retaining patients is critical to bring about a satisfactory clinical conclusion. This is where our patient travel and patient outreach services come into play. Our network of cars and fully trained drivers, to get patients to and from clinical sites or the delivery of vital medicines direct to a patient’s door, can make a difference when it comes to patient retention. In addition to this we can provide a meal service which includes preparation, portion control, assembly and serving to patients in the comfort of their own home or at the clinical site.  
3- Experienced Team to Navigate Regulatory Requirements 

Türkiye has streamlined its regulatory processes to facilitate clinical trials. These are fully in line with EU legislation and European Commission Directives. Due to the given cost advantages and highly motivated GCP-trained investigators, there is a higher investment rate here than in the EU.  

However, navigating the legislation and regulatory requirements can be challenging. Thankfully Oximio’s project managers are highly versed in managing logistics operations and work with sponsors to ensure that efficient approval timelines are met to expedite the initiation and smooth running of trials. 

4 – Flexible Approach 

Oximio’s team of project managers have extensive operational experience and expert industry knowledge. This is a great advantage for sponsors as managers can use their skills and knowledge to provide flexible solutions to maximise the full potential of your clinical trial. This is particularly beneficial when managing complex and indeed, the developing demands of trial studies.  
5 – Established Research Infrastructure & Healthcare System: 

The success of clinical trials often rests on the availability of a robust research infrastructure. Türkiye has invested significantly in healthcare facilities and research centres, offering the latest modern technology and experienced healthcare professionals. In addition, the Government offers a variety of incentives to encourage clinical research within the country, supported by The Ministry of Health who work with academia and research institutions to promote innovative research. 

Our project managers can help facilitate smooth communication with sponsors and authorities to take advantage of the benefits available.
