Growth of Clinical Trials in India
Over the past few years, India has progressed manifold in terms of medical science and treatment. The growth has
also been encouraging in the field of Clinical Trials. Hence, we can infer that the country is fast becoming a
favorable destination for medical research and other clinical studies aimed at medical innovation and
improvement. There has been rapid increase in research applications and studies. As long as this continues, clinical
trials and researches too would witness an encouraging growth.
To state from a report on "Booming Clinical Trials Market in India", clinical studies conducted by eminent domestic
players has increased in the past few years. Owing to these studies, new modes of treatment and therapies are
being discovered. Today in India, critical ailments are successfully detected at the initial stage, which is why the
treatment becomes easy and a well-guided one. If this progress rate remains constant, then clinical trials in India
would soon touch the benchmark of 1950 by 2013.
The primary reason for this growth is led by the emergence of industry sponsored clinical trial. Apart from this,
other factors are skilled professionals and reliable medical infrastructure that will help in continuing this process
Clinical Research Organizations in India, popularly known as CRO's too are conducting Clinical Trials. They all have a
strategic alliance with reputed medical institutions and hospitals in the country. Hence, CRO's have the access to
comprehensive databases that covers numerous therapeutic areas to other diagnostics and proprietary trials.
Phase II -IV trails are much talked about and are carried out with great precision by the CRO's. Furthermore, the
CRO's have their own research programs that implements study designs such as pharmacokinetic analysis, clinical
pharmacology, and bio-analytical method development conducted by a group of expert research associates and
clinical co-coordinators. They have a 360 degree approach towards clinical trials promising sponsors benefits from
a wide range of services such as :-
Pharmacy Services that assures a strict adherence to GCP and other allied international regulatory
Clinical Trial Supplies & Management
Volunteer Recruitment & Planning
Bio Studies are also one of the key services offered by the CRO's apart from the Clinical Trails. A wide range of
studies on bioequivalence and bioavailability are conducted in different centers in compliance with global
regulatory requirements, supervised with precision by an independent quality assurance section.
