Strict Requirements – From Design to Publication –
International scientific research is regulated by numerous criteria that clinical studies have to comply with. Studies must adhere to a high degree of safety and fulfil certain conditions. Ethical questions are also of importance; for each study, these questions have to be examined by an accredited ethics commission. Pre-approval studies must also be examined by the relevant state regulatory authorities.
