Linear provides the Perkins with a critical base for clinical trials of new medicines and is an illustration of our commitment to hasten the translation of our basic discoveries at the bench to the bedside.
Linear has a purpose built phase I facility, specialising in the conduct of first-in-human through to phase II clinical trials. The facility has strong connections with Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, Royal Perth Hospital and Fremantle Hospital, enabling Linear to recruit patients from all three hospitals as well as collaborate with specialised physicians across all therapeutic areas.
Clinical trials are a fundamental tool of modern medicine. In essence, clinical trials are research investigations in which people volunteer to test new treatments, interventions or tests as a means to prevent, detect, treat or manage various diseases or medical conditions. They are essential for the development of new interventions, and to determine whether new medicines are effective, safe and better than existing treatments.
