Research Site Introduction:
Established in 2001, Clinical Trials of Texas (CTT) is the fastest growing multi-specialty research organization in San Antonio.
Research Site Description:
CTT now has a 15,000 square foot facility dedicated to clinical research. In addition to Phase II-IV protocols, CTT now has a 10-bed Phase I facility for protocols requiring overnight stays. Depending on the study phase and protocol requirements, subject visits are conducted either on site, in hospitals or at one of the investigator sites. Our facility has eight fully equipped exam rooms and a lab complete with ultra low freezers (-80° & -40°), standard and refrigerated centrifuges, and temperature monitored refrigerators on backup power for drug and vaccine storage. Ambient drugs are kept in a climate controlled, access-controlled storage room. Other on site medical equipment includes 12 lead ECG machines, Tanita digital weight scales, a medical-grade programmable treadmill, crash cart, AED, oxygen, Doppler, ABI equipment and multiple draw stations. All medical equipment at CTT is calibrated and/or inspected by an authorized outside vendor on at least an annual basis, and all OSHA standards including biohazard collection and removal are upheld.
According to the 2000 U.S. Census, the city had a population of 1,144,646, ranking it the ninth-most populated city in the country. Due to San Antonio's low density rate and lack of significant population surrounding the city limits, the metropolitan area ranked just 30th in the U.S. with a population of 1,592,383.The age of the city's population is spread out with 28.5% under the age of 18, 10.8% from 18 to 24, 30.8% from 25 to 44, 19.4% from 45 to 64, and 10.4% who are 65 years of age or older. The median age is 32 years. In San Antonio, 48% of the population are males, and 52% of the population are females. For every 100 females there are 93.5 males. As of the 2005-2007 American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, White Americans made up 64.3% of San Antonio's population; of which 29.3% were non-Hispanic whites. Blacks or African Americans made up 6.6% of San Antonio's population; of which 6.3% were non-Hispanic blacks. American Indians made up 0.6% of the city's population; of which 0.3% were non-Hispanic.
