First ELN action: Impact assessment of the directive 2001/20/EC for stakeholders

Deadline: January 08, 2010

The directive 2001/20/EC (Clinical-Trials-Directive on Good Clinical Practice) could be amended and the EC has started an impact assessment to evaluate the goals and functioning of the directive. Part of the assessment is a public consultation process, which was performed on behalf of the ELN and further EU projects and stakeholer groups. The commented paper presented here is clearly focusing on the poor situation of multinational therapy optimization trials (investigator-initiated trials) and highlighting necessary changes.
