School of Business Lecturer, Dr Bastian Rake and Carolin Haeussler (University of Passau) recently published their paper “Did relaxing clinical trial regulation enhance the stock of scientific knowledge in India? Not necessarily” in PLoS ONE. While clinical trials are increasingly conducted outside the “traditional” locations, the extent to which clinical trials contribute to the scientific knowledge base and, in particular, whether there are differences between different types of trials remain open questions. By examining a change in clinical trial regulations in India, a country often viewed as a first-choice offshoring location, the authors study how the relaxation of clinical trial regulations affects the number and the type of clinical trials as well as the domestic scientific knowledge base.
