The Potential

Historically, most clinical research has been concentrated in developed nations. This trend is obvious from the geographical distribution of clinical research publications; most of the publications and the research itself come from North America and western Europe. 

Nevertheless, the presence of clinical research in Latin America growing steadily in the last decade, mainly because of cost effectiveness, excellent patient recruitment and the emergence of FDA approved regulatory agencies.


Cost Effectiveness

There are huge financial gains associated with conducting clinical research in Latin America, with up to 50% lower costs when compared to the USA. This is in part because of the materials and actual cost of location for LATAM research centers are less expensive and does not compromise standard-of-care or data validity.


Patient Recruitment

With a population of 600M+, LATAM is one of the less exploited regions for patient recruitment when compared with saturated major centers in the USA and Europe. The lack of clinical trials and the strong bond between patients and physicians, make Latin America fertile ground for patient recruitment and retention.


Regulatory Agencies

During the last decade most of Latin American countries have opened agencies and adopted new regulations that adhere to the FDA’s international standards. That is why it is crucial to have a local CRO with the expertise to navigate this changing landscape, and locally-based teams with staff who speak the language, which can save a lot of time during the study start-up phase.
