India Steps Back on Trial Compensation Rules, Introduces Regulatory Framework for Devices

September 10, 2013
India’s Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on Aug. 30 gave notice that it plans to scale back some elements of the controversial clinical trial compensation rules released early this year. The new plan would eliminate mandated compensation for study subjects who receive no therapeutic benefit from a trial. It retains other compensation requirements, however, for subjects injured in trials.
