Current Situation and Objectives

PDF version

Clinical research plays a fundamental role in pharmaceutical R&D, since it determines the effectiveness and safety of new drugs on people. It is also the link between basic research and patient care.

The most common factors for failure in clinical research are: the lack of effectiveness, doubts about clinical safety and negative toxicological results in the pre-clinical evaluation.

Within the objectives of the areas of effectiveness and safety, priority has been given to increasing the capabilities of the clinical trials and to intensifying dialogue with the authorities to reduce clinical development times and costs, as well as to improving patient recruitment. Thus, actions have begun with clinical research, establishing the Best Project as the platform for excellence in clinical research.
