Clinical trials

Clinical trials in their modern meaning have been carried out in Estonia since early 1990s.

The variety of medical specialities (2019) and the annual number of submitted clinical trial protocols have steadily increased over the last two decades but the growth has stalled in the recent few years. The government and the industry are constantly working to improve the clinical research environment in Estonia. The number of study centres per protocol, being 1-2 in the early years, has grown as the research has reached out from the tertiary care to the county hospitals and GP-s. Most of the trials are Phase III and II, but also a few pharmacokinetic and bioequivalence studies are carried out each year.
