In the area of clinical trials, the Central European region provides unique advantages to international pharmaceutical concerns: the associated costs of trials remain relatively low, it is easier to find appropriate candidates to participate in a clinical trial, as candidates are more interested in participation due to lack of money and limited reimbursement. The region analysed still participates in a centralised healthcare system, which means that its countries contain large hospitals that specialise in oncology, cardiology and rheumatology, which rank among the most popular therapeutic categories for clinical trials. Worthy of note, however, are the drawbacks and barriers described by the report as they represent crucial knowledge for any company conducting (or intending to commence) clinical trials in the six countries analysed in the publication.
