Clinical trials 2

This is from "The Influence of the Pharmaceutical Industry":
39. Many large-scale Phase II and III trials are currently being carried out in Eastern Europe and elsewhere as a result of high costs imposed here.36 Dr Malcolm Boyce, who runs a London-based Contract Research Organisation (CRO), stressed:
A strong pound sterling makes matters worse for overseas companies. For those reasons, companies are increasingly placing their Phase II and III trials outside the UK, in low cost areas such as Eastern Europe, Russia and India.37 p. 18

I'll write about it later.

You have very well stated that clinical research is now being taken up in India seriously. I must say that still there are not many institutions offering a course on such a sensitive topic. ICRI is one of the premier institutes of the country and aims at promoting clinical research in the country. With foreign recognition and good faculty, its future prospects seem to b very bright. A number of clinical research projects have been taken up by ICRI and hav produced medicines of great value. It should b seriously considered by all aspirants of research very seriously.

Thank you Sahel.
Just today I saw your comment.
I'll search on the links you gave me.
Let's see if I can have any good news.
But clinical trials are dangerous the way they are being cared.
You know that 5 healthy people committed suicide on Elli-Lilly's facilities during the Cymbalta clinical trials.
I'm sure you know about the TGN1412 case that happened in London in March 2006.
This is very serious!
All cares are necessary.
