When you think of countries as candidates for clinical trials, which ones come to mind?  North America, Great Britain, France?

What about Russia?

Russia is the largest country in the world.  Today’s Russian clinical trial market is worth 880 million dollars and there is every expectation that it will continue to grow. The only question is, at what rate? If growth remains, then, at the current rate of 4.65 per cent per year to 2020, then there will be approximately 1086 new studies compared to a total of 790 in 2013.
