Clinical studies

A decision on the possibility of medical usage of the drug, i.e., launch onto the market, may be taken only after its systematic study in humans and on the basis of sufficient amount of information proving its efficacy and safety.

RDG organizes clinical studies in accordance with the principles of Good Clinical Practice and Russian legislation, international principles of GCP, ICH and FDA regulations. The main principle of our work in the field of clinical studies is strict compliance with legislation, confidentiality, patients’ rights and safety, and optimization of trial scale. Clinical studies are important for the future of medicinal product, this is part of the development of the drug, and in this regard we plan clinical studies so that their design, scale, results are sufficient for their full development and subsequent launch onto the pharmaceutical market of Russian Federation, as well as to allow for the possibility to use these results as promotional materials.

The results of local (conducted on the territory of Russia) clinical studies, bioequivalence studies, international studies with the participation of Russia as a member of studies are a mandatory part of the registration dossier and are required for product registration in Russia.
