Publication of official data on clinical trials in Ukraine
The availability of regularly updated official information on clinical trials in Ukraine is an urgent necessity. Open information is a basis for assessing trends and prospects of clinical trials development in Ukraine. The EBA Clinical Trials Subcommittee (EBA CTS) has repeatedly emphasized the necessity of regular and open publication of relevant data on clinical trials in Ukraine in its communication with the expert authorities.
The result of interaction of the EBA CTS with the State Expert Center of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine was a publication of two articles about clinical trials in “Interfax-Ukraine” and in “Ukrainska Pravda” on October 4, 2018. Then in November the State Expert Center of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine published the “Information On the Expertise of Clinical Trials Materials in Ukraine for 9 Months 2018” on its official website.
The EBA assesses positively the availability of up-to-date clinical trial data in open access. It is of great importance for clinical trials companies, potential sponsors of clinical trials and has a positive impact on popularizing clinical trials among Ukrainian patients.
