Japan's Ministry To Support Clinical Trial Contract Business

This article was originally published in PharmAsia News

Executive Summary

Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry began to take measures to support clinical trial contract business. The measures aim to establish a market where research technology and services can be freely exchanged, and to foster an environment where service providers, users and intermediaries can easily participate. According to the ministry, currently in areas of biology and medical device contact services, small- to mid-sized companies who have advanced technology are not benefiting fully from manufacturing on contract for big companies, and an environment where ideas will be protected and technology will be subjectively evaluated is needed. The ministry will organize an expert committee and expects a report due by February 2009. (Click here for more - Japanese language)
