Ukraine country information
In the past 10 years the number of clinical trials in Ukraine has demonstrated rapid growth. In 2012, a record-breaking number of 213 international trials were reached with the participation of Ukrainians patients.
Ukraine still offers an attractive combination of relatively low logistics costs, access to a large native population and a high speed of enrolment. Moreover, the genetic similarity of Ukrainians to other European populations, proves to be beneficial when new drugs are tested that are specifically designed for the use of Europeans.
Ukraine has a perfect location as it is close to the EU countries, where large pharmaceutical companies and global logistics vendors have their base.
Deliveries of Investigational Medicinal Products and Clinical Trials Supply materials in Ukraine do not take more than two days. There are no significant climate differences between its various regions. Hence, fast deliveries with a low risk of temperature deviations are very probable.
Excellent reasons to choose Ukraine as a location for your clinical trials:
- According to expert analysis. The pharmaceutical field is still considered to be one of the most attractive for investment.
- Scientists together with the manufacturers are deeply interested in the development of the industry in general.
- Ukrainian professionals are a symbiosis between chemists, pharmacologists, toxicologists and pharmacists who are known to have an optimistic view of the future.
- The Legislative and regulatory aspects are constantly developing and improving. This fact, together with the growing number of clinical trials, ensures that the environment will constantly become better and more favourable.
