Australia Advantage – Consider Conducting Clinical Trials in Australia

Mar 16, 2023 11:33:42 AM / by Alliance Pharma posted in Pharmaceuticals, Immunoassay, bioanalytical, laboratory, Quality, Large Molecule, Bioanalysis, DMPK, Australia


Our advanced scientific infrastructure and world-class experts attract trials from across the globe and meet their needs with the highest standards and efficient regulatory requirements.

Explore the extensive benefits of Australia’s clinical research ecosystem below.

    Alliance Pharma has a world-class reputation for quality data, following the highest level of GCP and ICH standards. Data from clinical trials conducted in Australia is widely accepted by all regulatory authorities including FDA and EMA.

     includes bioanalytics services
     almost halve your clinical trial costs

    You can claim R&D cash refund with the Australian Government clinical trial rebate program. As an example, if you spend $200k on eligible R&D, you can receive $87k (43.5%) back from the Australian Tax Office (ATO). This effectively means you could turn $1million dollars into $1.7 million dollars of research spend in just three years.

     The Australian Regulatory Framework is the fastest in the world for undertaking early phase clinical research trials
     Trials can start in 4-8 weeks compared to 10 months in the US.
     No IND required for clinical trials. Save up to a year in regulatory timelines and considerable costs.

    Clinical trials are resource-intensive processes requiring the availability of state-of-the-art equipment and facilities for testing and analysis. We have invested heavily in the industry-leading technology platforms to support speed, communications, and regulatory compliance.

    Local relationships, global execution As a global contract research organization – with sites in USA and UK – we can provide internal assay transfer and validation protocols among our global sites.

    Harmonized SOPs, policies, and IT systems to facilitate transfer of methods, data, and information enable you to reduce time, risk, and cost.

    Seasonal differences to Europe and US, and time differences (our Australia lab works while you sleep)Seasonal differences between Australia and Europe or the US allow for yearlong participant recruitment for trials involving seasonal illnesses such as flu or allergies and allows researchers to cover seasonal variations in patient recruitment.

    Australian clinical practices and some aspects of its health care system are similar to the United States, United Kingdom and most of Europe.

    The willingness of potential participants and their knowledge of clinical trials is another attractive option for sponsors to conduct trials in Australia.

    A mixed population of Caucasians and Asian adds diversity to the participant pool and enables ethnicity differences in treatment response to be studied.
