Conducting Exploratory Trials in Scandinavia

Debating where to take your clinical trial? While emergent research settings like India and Asia have captured much of the media spotlight in recent years, there are few places in the world better-suited for phase 1 and phase 2 clinical trials than Scandinavia. .

Populations in the Nordic region are ethnically homogeneous with a majority being caucasian. Governments and populations both display a positive attitude toward clinical research, with high compliance rates by trial participants. All citizens have free and equal access to healthcare, preventing sampling bias due to differences in social status.
