THE PHARMNET APPROACH
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO CONDUCT CLINICAL TRIALS IN CEE AND THE EU?
Marketing authorization in the EU provides access to:
- Economically, one of the strongest regions worldwide
- A population of 512 million people
- State-of-the-art healthcare which is easily accessible for the majority of the population
Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) is a dynamic region with approximately 1,000 new trials registered each year. In this region, healthcare is mostly centralized resulting in more patients in fewer locations, which aids patient recruitment. In general, patients trust their physicians, and physicians are keen to participate in clinical trials.
- DYNAMIC REGION
- CENTRALIZED HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS AID PATIENT RECRUITMENT
- WELL REGULATED
In 2022, EU legislation, ‘the Clinical Trials Regulation’, was introduced to ensure the EU offers an attractive and favorable environment for carrying out large-scale clinical research with high standards of transparency as well as safety for clinical trial participants. This regulation harmonizes the processes for assessment and supervision of clinical trials throughout the EU and enables sponsors to submit just one online application for approval instead of submitting to each country separately. Criteria for the European Medicine Agency (EMA) and FDA authorization are very similar.

REVIEW - DO WE HAVE ENOUGH INFORMATION?
Is there sufficient data showing the reasonable time and costs for project execution?
Or shall we revisit the project definitions?
Different countries manage patients differently. Have we chosen ones that offer efficiency?
