These tests are then tried out on animal models first and then on humans to closely monitor the potential benefits and drawbacks of new or existing tests and treatments. Clinical trials consist of 3 Clinical phases before it is eligible for approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Each phase of a clinical trial is designed in such a way to obtain specific information about the new treatment or drug.

The various Phases are as follows:

  • Pre Clinical Testing
  • Phase I
  • Phase II

My colleagues and I have just concluded one of India's most in-depth studies on "Clinical Trials in India". We have looked at various areas such as:
- Market Trends
- Growth Drivers
- Regulatory Bodies and Framework
- Major Players.
-Etc.
We interviewed over 200 individuals and firms to collect the data in what we believe is one of the most detailed study on the subject in India.
