The Lalit Hotel
India has several unique features for being a hot spot for the clinical trial market and as a signatory to the World Trade Organization agreements, it is looked upon as a favorable destination for conducting global clinical trials. There are many opportunities and challenges for conducting global clinical trials in India.
With its large patient population and limited resources, India has significant unfilled health needs. We should make the newest and best treatment option to be avail to the population and to the patient’s globally. For this, India must proactively take part in conducting clinical research and assume leadership role globally. As we are operating in a new regulatory and operational environment, we have a great task ahead of us – strengthening the sites, Investigators, Ethics Committees and empowering the patient who is the center of the clinical research enterprise.
