Why Australia is the best place in the world for early phase studies

The Australian Advantage is about saving time and minimizing costs while generating internationally accepted data in preparation for the next Phase.

The Australian regulatory framework is considered to be the fastest in the world for approving and undertaking early phase clinical research trials. Central to the accelerated clinical process is that an IND is not required in Australia, which means extremely rapid start-up for biotechs, often in under 5 weeks. Biotechs can also leverage up to 43.5% in rebates to further reduce costs. Meanwhile the exceptional scientific and medical research environment offers world-leading clinical settings for early Phase trials.

  • the CTN Scheme
  • and the CTX Scheme

As an experienced CRO, Avance Clinical has extensive experience with both these schemes. Benefits include:

  • Site Initiation Visit (SIV) and Study Start can be achieved in 5 – 6 Weeks.
  • Working within this robust and efficient framework accelerates clinical trials.
  • No IND is required for clinical research trials
  • Full GMP material is not mandated for Phase I clinical research trials

Avance Clinical has been supporting international biotechs in their clinical drug development processes for regulatory approval for the past two decades.
