With this goal in mind, MedAvante - ProPhase  set out to solve one of Pharma’s most intractable problems: the bias and variability that cause failed or inconclusive trials for Central Nervous System (CNS) therapies. A few years later, MedAvante - ProPhase  experts pioneered Central Ratings and introduced the concept of Central Review utilizing their groundbreaking Virgil eSource solution.
