Test Subject Recruitment Business

Pacific Grove Co., Ltd. exhibits strengths in elderly special population groups


Pacific Grove Co., Ltd. has been working in clinical trial subject recruitment since 2004. To get drugs to market and to the patient as early as possible, we developed the Medical volunteers Group, JCVN, as our base.


We have a long record of recruiting volunteers with diverse diseases including diabetes, lifestyle-related diseases, bronchial asthma, atopic dermatitis, and mental illnesses, for a wide range of clinical trials.


What sets us apart from the other subject recruitment agencies is that we have clinical trial volunteers ranging in age from their 20s through to their 80s. In fact, those aged 40 or older make up the greatest proportion of our membership population.


We set the bar by recruiting more than 2,000 volunteers to phase I trials targeting elderly people, aged 65 years or older. This was managed by our active ‘two-way communication approach’ and a reliable support system which facilitates elderly volunteers to participate in clinical trials with ease.


Rather than relying solely on the internet or e-mails, we improve participation and retention rates by providing detailed support using phone calls, faxes and letters.


Volunteers have close communication with staff members who have medical knowledge and receive regular Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training. So that volunteers can apply to with confidence, we have a reliable system in place for managing personal information such as the  of Privacy Mark.


We support the development of new drugs by encouraging those who suffer from diseases to participate in clinical trials, which improves the quality of the trial. To this end, we put huge effort into hosting events such as free health checkups, bone density measurement meetings, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) examinations, glaucoma intraocular pressure measurement meetings, etc. at various sites, and acquire medical check-up data of elderly volunteers so that they can be enrolled in trials for medical treatments.


  Nursing care business

Nursing Care Business

Residents can stay in this facility for a flexible period of time, for example, while waiting to transfer to high-care care homes for the elderly or for short-term stays, etc. Residents can enjoy life in their own way by engaging in whatever activities they enjoy, including hobbies.

All rooms are private and fully equipped with emergency call units, air conditioning and heating, light fixtures, and sprinklers. Additionally, all rooms are wheelchair accessible.


The Well Life Series allows nursing care managers to collaborate with local in-home medical care service providers, and various other service providers, to manage volunteers’ daily physical conditions. We have systems in place to accommodate any sudden changes which may arise. Furthermore, if necessary, other support services are available, such as help measuring temperature and blood pressure, administering insulin injections, facilitating hospital visits, etc.
