Seeking the best of both worlds? Central and Eastern Europe might be the hidden gem you’re seeking. This region offers established clinical trials practices, experienced investigators and an eager patient population, which might make it the best region for you if you’re seeking high-quality data with high-paced recruitment on a budget. Consider Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovak Republic and Ukraine for your next trial. Many Central and Eastern European countries follow the same import/export, customs clearance and regulatory practices (including VHP) as their Western European counterparts.
