TTC has an Early Phase Unit, situated in close proximity to Karl Bremer Hospital. We have successfully completed more than 25 Phase I studies, including pharmacokinetic and bio-equivalence studies as well as a first in man vaccine study. TTC is a preferred site for Phase II studies and has successfully completed 56 Phase II studies. The Unit is most suitable for equivalence studies with overnight and entertainment facilities.
KARL BREMER HOSPITAL
One of the strengths of TTC is the unique symbiotic relationship with Karl Bremer Hospital since 2000. Karl Bremer Hospital was established in 1956 and is one of the oldest hospitals in the Western Cape. The hospital provides high quality care, for both the private patients (belonging to medical scheme and private paying patients), as well as Government subsidised patients. The hospital has 282 beds of which 34 are private. Tiervlei Trial Centre interacts closely with the hospital and has access to important services like a 24h00 medical emergency service.
