Conducting Clinical Trials in Argentina 2023 – Latin America CRO

Clinical trials are an essential part of the drug development process, providing crucial data to support the safety and efficacy of new treatments.

The conduct of clinical trials is a complex and highly regulated process that involves multiple stakeholders, including sponsors, investigators, ethics committees, and regulatory authorities.

Argentina is a popular location for clinical trials due to its well-established infrastructure, skilled workforce, and favorable regulatory environment.

In 2023, Argentina is expected to continue to attract clinical trial sponsors looking to conduct studies in the region.

Here are some key considerations for conducting clinical trials in Argentina in 2023:

Regulatory environment

Argentina has a well-established regulatory framework for clinical trials, with the National Administration of Drugs, Food and Medical Technology (ANMAT) serving as the primary regulatory authority.

ANMAT is responsible for reviewing and approving clinical trial protocols, monitoring the conduct of trials, and ensuring compliance with national and international regulations.

In 2023, The National Administration of Drugs, Foods and Medical Devices (ANMAT) is expected to continue to prioritize the efficient and timely review of clinical trial applications, with a focus on promoting innovation while ensuring patient safety.

Ethics committees

All clinical trials conducted in Argentina must be approved by an ethics committee. Ethics committees are responsible for reviewing trial protocols and ensuring that they are in line with ethical principles and national regulations.

In 2023, ethics committees in Argentina are expected to continue to prioritize patient safety while also encouraging innovation in the development of new treatments.

Conducting Clinical Trials

Clinical trial sites

Argentina has a well-established network of clinical trial sites, including hospitals, clinics, and research centers.

These sites have access to state-of-the-art facilities and skilled healthcare professionals, making them an attractive location for clinical trial sponsors.

In 2023, clinical trial sites in Argentina are expected to continue to provide high-quality data and maintain a strong track record of patient recruitment and retention.

Patient recruitment and retention

Patient recruitment and retention are critical factors in the success of clinical trials. Argentina has a large and diverse patient population, with a mix of urban and rural areas.

This diversity can be leveraged to ensure that clinical trial participants reflect the broader patient population and increase the generalizability of trial results.

In 2023, clinical trial sponsors in Argentina are expected to continue to prioritize patient recruitment and retention, utilizing a range of strategies, including community outreach, patient advocacy groups, and social media.

Logistics and supply chain management

The logistics and supply chain management of clinical trials in Argentina is well-developed, with established systems for drug importation, storage, and distribution.

In 2023, clinical trial sponsors can expect a reliable and efficient supply chain infrastructure in Argentina.

Language and cultural considerations

Spanish is the primary language spoken in Argentina, and clinical trial documents must be translated into Spanish before submission to regulatory authorities and ethics committees.

Additionally, cultural considerations must be taken into account when conducting clinical trials in Argentina, including differences in healthcare practices and patient attitudes towards clinical research.

In 2023, clinical trial sponsors in Argentina are expected to continue to prioritize cultural sensitivity and effective communication with patients and healthcare providers.


Argentina is a highly attractive location for clinical trials in 2023, with a well-established regulatory framework, strong clinical trial sites, and a large and diverse patient population.

Clinical trial sponsors can expect a favorable regulatory environment, efficient logistics and supply chain management, and effective patient recruitment and retention strategies.

However, it is essential to consider language and cultural considerations when conducting clinical trials in Argentina to ensure that patients are treated with respect and dignity throughout the trial process.
