Clinical Trial Safety

Clinical Trials are conducted in accordance with international safety standards as defined by the International Conference on Harmonisation- Good Clinical Practice (ICH –GCP). These guidelines advocate for the safety of clinical trial participants, the efficacy of a trial protocol, and the collection of quality of data in the clinical trial setting.

All trials are reviewed by the Calvary Human Resource Ethics Committee (HREC) and must be approved by HREC prior to patient participation.
