It is essential that Portuguese-speaking countries review the legislation in terms of clinical trials – Coordinator

Praia, Feb 24 (Inforpress) – The coordinator of the BERC-Luso project said Saturday that it is essential that Portuguese-speaking countries review the legislation in terms of clinical research to keep up with international trends and advances and meet the conditions for clinical trials.

These are, among others, the recommendations presented during the commitment celebration session, in the training action for “biomedical research and clinical trials: regulatory and ethical training”, which took place from the 17th to the 22nd of this month, in Praia.

It was promoted by the BERC-Luso project (Biomedical Ethics and Regulatory Capacity Building Partnership for Portuguese-Speaking African Countries), through the regulatory ethics training project in Portuguese-speaking African Countries (PALOP), supported by the European Union and co-financed by Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.

“It is recommended that there is a review of the legislation in all Portuguese-speaking countries, as in Portugal, which is constantly carrying out its legislative review under the European Union, it is also essential that the Portuguese-speaking countries carry out this review because the legislation at international level has advanced a lot in recent times and has become quite strict with regard to legal ethical requirements for conducting clinical trials”, she said.
