India has become an attractive destination for clinical trials, combining many of the elements western sponsors require including: a vibrant urban health care environment, English as the language of clinical trials, first rate medical credentials of CRAs and Project Managers, and an advanced clinical trial infrastructure.
Indeed, Indian based regulatory bodies cooperate fully with international agencies, to ensure regulatory standards meet the requirements of USA FDA and ICH GCP guidelines. As a result of the Indian government’s initiatives, the FDA established it’s second ‘ex-USA’ office in India in 2009.

They continue preparing in anticipation of increasing growth from around the world to conduct their clinical trial studies in India.
