Clinical Trials Coordination Group of HMA published recommendation to sponsors on managing the impact of the war in Ukraine on clinical trials
The following recommendations focus on the transfer of trial participants from centres in Ukraine to centres in the EU/EEA within the same multinational clinical trial.
The primary objective of ensuring further participation of clinical trial participants is that they have continuous access to the investigational treatment that they are likely to benefit from.
In such situation sponsors are encouraged to make necessary arrangements to allow transfer of refugees to study sites in the EU/EEA.
CTCG recommendations are detailed in the attached file.
