Offshoring of clinical trials is increasing as companies in the U.S. are finding challenges in clinical trial research ranging from cost, patient recruitment, patient compliance during participation, qualified professionals, new clinical trial patients, and other problems. This provides an opportunity for BRIC countries and other developing regions to grab a piece of the clinical trial market.
