• At the EDCTP forum last week I presented for CARED foundation about the quality of investigational medicinal products (IMPs) used in non-commercial clinical studies in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Those are far too often of low quality (falsified, substandard or degraded). CARED promotes to add ‘quality field’ in all clinical trial registries (CTRs) for IMPs to have some easy check. At the moment most CTRs don’t have those fields.
