basically denotes any investigation carried out on normal healthy and/or diseased human beings to generate information which can be used for treatment, diagnosis, prevention and relief of symptoms in disease. In the present context, we refer to Clinical Research as investigations that determine the safety and effectiveness of drugs, devices, diagnostic products, vaccines and treatment regimens intended for human beings.
Clinical Research profession is an unmet need in India. The country is poised to be one of the favorable destinations for clinical research in coming years due to its large research and development potentials. There is an acute shortage of trained manpower in this field. From the projections made for pharmaceutical industry, it is indicated that its present number of clinical research professionals is grossly inadequate and at least 30,000 to 50,000 skilled professionals will be required by 2010. McKinsey has estimated and Confederation of Indian Industry has also concurred that India's clinical research sector would grow to Rupees 5000 crores by 2010, a tenfold increase from the present meager business of Rupees 450 crores only. Therefore clinical research has emerged as a leading knowledge based industry of the new millennium.
