Clinical Trials


Clinical Trial Medications and Specialized Preparations

Triangle Compounding Pharmacy has experience in the preparation of medications for just that purpose. We have worked with local universities, clinical investigators and pharmaceutical companies to produce study medications.

The scopes of these clinical study preparations have been for as little as a few hundred units up to thousands based on the scale of the study. The benefit to the manufacturer and study coordinators is that small quantities in early phase I and II trials are typically very expensive to produce. We can facilitate the rapid processing of quantities desired, in blinded or open label formats, of the study medication.

What types of study medications have we provided?

We have generated medications in various forms, including capsules, sterile injections, sterile preservative free eye drops, nasal sprays, transdermal creams and gels, topical sprays, suppositories, and sub-lingual drops. These are a few of the typical forms. You may have need for additional variables in drug delivery.  We can work with you in addressing the challenges you face in these critical research study situations.

What clinical trial services do we offer?

  • We can custom compound medication forms with active or placebo dosage forms.
  • We can provide these medications in patient trial kits with patient information or other required documentation. For blinded trial medications, both the study medication and placebo will be appropriately labeled for study coordinator key reference.


We were the first pharmacy in North Carolina to be granted the Pharmacy Compounding Board Accreditation (PCAB) in 2006. We have maintained this accreditation and most recently were inspected in May 2010.

We have also had audits by research groups from local major university researchers and pharmaceutical manufacturers in the process of establishing research medication provision for phase I, II, and III trials.
