The world and the new millennium stands witness to revolutionary breakthroughs happening in the medical research arena. New drug or botanical discoveries and therapies that will perhaps cure life threatening diseases and bring about improved quality of life – is the order of the day.
All this and more, possible due to endless and tireless work in the area of Research and Development by organizations united on one single front. To meet unending medical demand and necessities and make effective healthcare more accessible to the population at large.
Research on humans to harness the goodness of potential drugs has been carried out since centuries. Human Trials are a definitive and most important link in the process of Discovery to Development and Commercialization. However, tales of unethical and almost inhuman conduct related to these trials with little or no protection of subject rights have been etched in history and in the minds of many.
The beginning of every change is awareness. A new idea, thought ingrained to bring about a difference is worthy of its cause. Human Trials since long have been a topic of prejudice and of concern to a few. Are they safe? Are they necessary? And many more such queries would always remain in ‘a valley of doubt’ if not answered or addressed accurately.
‘Global Clinical Research Awareness Day’ – An initiative by ClinACE to bring to light the ethical framework of Clinical Research which has undergone an evolution from negative perception, injustice, and manipulation of subject rights to bringing safe, effective and quality healthcare without compromise. It is our endeavor to spread the good word about Clinical Research and Protection of Subject Rights.
