Clinical Trials for Medical Products in Asia

Our experts can help you manage and expedite your clinical trials in Asia to get your products to market sooner.

clinical trials in asiaWhen registering new medical products in Asia, there are various reasons Western companies may want or need to conduct local clinical trials. The most common reason is that the local Asian government may require the clinical data for product registration. In addition, the large, genetically diverse population in Asia creates ideal sample populations, and the cost to perform clinical studies in Asia may be lower than in Western countries. In some cases, post market data may be required.

An understanding of the regulatory requirements in each Asian country and experience in dealing with the local regulatory authorities is essential in administering a smooth, successful clinical trial in Asia.
