Clinical Trial Network

In reference to the Clinical development of Biologicals (Vaccines and Biosimilars), one of the needs identified by Biotech companies is the challenge in accessing trained and equipped clinical trial sites in the country. Clinical trials are currently an important bottleneck in the product development process as companies and institutions usually have to go through an ad hoc process of finding sites with access to the required population that meet internationally accepted clinical and ethical standards. To solve this bottleneck, National biopharma Mission (NBM) will support the establishment of a clinical trial networks (CTN) and strengthen clinical trial capacity in the country.

To support vaccine development, the mission will support conduct of epidemiology studies of relevant diseases in healthy cohorts in already existing Demographic Surveillance sites (DSS) and further strengthening of these DSS sites for conduct of GCP compliant trials.
