Ethical Conduct of Clinical Trials
IPM's clinical trials follow strict ethical guidelines in accordance with the principles of the World Medical Association Declaration of Helsinki, the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines, and country-specific clinical trial guidelines and regulations.
Each of IPM's research studies is approved in advance by in-country regulatory authorities, and by provincial and local ethics committees. IPM clinical trials are monitored frequently to ensure the conduct of the trial is in compliance with the protocol, GCP and applicable regulatory requirements.
IPM is committed to ensuring that all those participating in research studies provide informed consent based on a clear understanding of the study, including the potential risks and benefits of participation.
