Our experts can help you manage and expedite your clinical trials in Asia to get your products to market sooner.
When 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 local 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 too.
An understanding of the regulatory requirements , an experienced, on the ground, local team providing contract research organization (CRO) services and experience in dealing with each Asian local regulatory authority is essential in administering a smooth, successful clinical trial in Asia.
