Regulations and Recruitment: Experiences in the Middle East

The potential for the pharmaceuticals industry in the Middle East
is vast, and growing. Clinical research is also growing, alongside
pharma, in the region, despite variations in situation from country to
country, and despite certain barriers that still need to be solved. The
challenges of regulations and patient recruitment, in particular, are
analysed. Bariş Erdoğan, PhD, Ömer Şeker, MD, and Le Vin Chin,
of Clinerion Ltd, take a specific look at one of the most established
countries in the region for clinical trials, Turkey, to see how it might
act as a model for the rest of the region.
