KPAR Overview

Kentucky Pediatric Research, Inc. (doing business as Kentucky Pediatric/ Adult Research) has been participating in pharmaceutical sponsored clinical trials since 1986 and has conducted approximately 430 Phase I-IV trials in a wide range of therapeutic areas, specializing in anti-infectives and vaccines. We are a dedicated outpatient research department within a large rural pediatric practice, Physicians to Children & Adolescents, PSC, (PTCA) in Bardstown, KY. PTCA and KPAR are owned by 7 pediatricians, who are passionate about improving the welfare of their patients through closely monitored and controlled clinical trials.

At KPAR, we believe clinical research is vital to the advancement of medicine and providing optimal care to patients. KPAR is committed to helping companies find new and/or better ways to treat or prevent various diseases through clinical trials. Making a difference in not only our community, but throughout the world.

“According to the US Census Bureau, more than half of Americans are taking prescription medications at the present time and most Americans report routinely using over-the-counter medications. However, the general public does not connect the medicines and behavioral interventions to the clinical research and dedication of people before them who made these developments possible.”
