“If we in Europe want to remain among the leaders in creating innovation . . . you also need to provide a system to allow companies to reap the rewards of innovation,” he said in an interview.
“The industry needs to continue to work very strongly and intensively with the political decision makers to make it clear what is the role of medical innovation.”

Clinical trials are key to moving medicine forward as they look at new ways to prevent, detect or treat disease, in the form of new drugs or new combinations of drugs, new surgical procedures or devices, or new ways to use existing treatments. The goal of clinical trials is to determine if a new test or treatment or a novel way to use an existing treatment works and is safe.

Healthy volunteers and people with illnesses participate in clinical trials; both are essential. While healthy participants help define the limits of ‘normal’, acting as controls for patient groups, patient volunteers allow researchers to better understand, diagnose, treat or cure the disease or condition they have.
