MADISON, WI (April 26, 2022) – MERIT CRO, Inc., a global clinical trial endpoint service provider specializing in the ophthalmology, respiratory, and oncology therapeutic areas, today announced the addition of Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) services to its ophthalmology solutions.
“As the primary endpoint for most ophthalmic clinical trials, standardized BCVA certification and training along with centralized data review is critical to the success of a trial,” said Yijun Huang, Ph.D., Co-Founder and CEO of MERIT. “We at MERIT are pleased to grow our endpoint services to include this important offering,” he added.
Leveraging its global endpoint service experience in ophthalmology, MERIT now also provides comprehensive training, certification, and management of study BCVA activities as well as centralized data review of BCVA source documents.
