Premier Research acquires Health Decisions
21 July 2021 -

Premier Research, a US-based clinical research and development company, announced on Tuesday that it has acquired Health Decisions, a United States-based contract research organisation focused on clinical development in all areas of women's health and diagnostics.

Krista Armstrong, PhD., senior vice president, Clinical Development Services, Premier Research, said, 'This is a pivotal moment in women's health as unmet needs continue to grow. The women's health market is expected to reach USD40B in the next five years and new technologies are on the rise. Thankfully, big data is providing new insights into prevention and treatments for breast and pelvic health. But a major factor in market growth is the rising incidence of female-specific diseases and disorders worldwide -- from osteoporosis and osteoarthritis to anaemia and hormonal imbalances.'

The acquired company has a dual concentration on women's health research and diagnostics and is supported by a network of 500 women's health sites.
