Each Nordic country has limited patient populations, but if they join resources, the region will become more attractive and easier to operate in for institutions that wish to conduct clinical trials. The aim of this study is to propose models and make recommendations which will enhance cooperation on clinical trials in the Nordic region.
The report gives an overview of the current status of clinical trial activity in the five countries, and the level of collaboration between them. Clinicaltrials.gov was used to supply data to this overview from the database, and was supported by other available data like annual reports from ethics committees and research councils and statistics from national pharmaceutical industry organizations.
