While the Philippines is still an emerging area for drug development, it is efficient for global clinical trials based on the following considerations:

  • Lower cost: The cost of conducting clinical trials within the Philippines is typically lower than Western countries and often includes physicians with U.S-based training and expertise.
  • Straightforward regulations: The Philippines regulatory guidelines are straightforward and the local regulatory process has found a more efficient system which empowers the IRB’s / IEC’s to undertake ethical and technical evaluation of clinical trials. The IRB’s / IEC’s subsequently make recommendations to the national FDA on the approval of such studies for conduct in the Philippines. All local investigators and study coordinators are fluent in English (written and verbal), and medical records are kept in English.
  • Treatment-naïve patient pool: The patient pool in Philippines is often used for testing vaccines and drugs to treat tropical diseases.
