Proposed Tax Change Would Impact Clinical Research
Proposed Tax Change Would Impact Clinical Research

Pharma companies that conduct clinical research inhouse essentially get a 100 percent tax break on the expenses incurred from that research (about 70 percent of which are normally wages).

    After Government Debacle, Is It Any Easier To Perform Clinical Trials In India?

    In May 2014, I interviewed Mithra Bindhu of India-based Asiatic Clinical Research to get an update on performing clinical trials in that country. The DCGI (Drug Controller General of India) had recently attempted to overhaul the entire system, which took a long time, complicated the process of conducting trials in India, and caused some sponsors to question the value of doing business there. Has the situation changed?
