No. That’s a myth. The study need not be necessarily conducted in the same city, state or country where the product is intended to be sold. The study can be conducted in any country as long as the study population fulfills the inclusion and exclusion criteria for the study. Yes, it is true that some countries offer advantages over others. Example: An anti-pollution study is best done in polluted areas like metro cities of China, India or Japan.

We ensure fast recruitment due to the following aspects:
• Well reputed & experienced investigators with large patient pools
• Recruiters hired on contractual basis that have large network groups
• Snowball method – highly effective in India
• Successful referral system
• Fast pre-screening to avoid screening failures

Although we are headquartered in Mumbai and most of our studies take place at investigational sites here, we also conduct studies at sites in other cities to ensure faster recruitment at multiple centers. We choose the study sites based on a comprehensive site feasibility questionnaire that covers both experience and expertise of the investigator and the facilities available at the site for study conduct. We also conduct virtual and on site audits to qualify new sites. A site feasibility report is sent to the sponsor before selecting the site for the study. We also send the CVs of the investigators, the profiles of the clinics, SOPs of the labs etc. for your approval. Hence, you can be rest assured that only the best sites will be selected for your study.

The dietary patterns of Indian population are very similar, in these times, to the US or European countries, with a few modifications. To add to it, we prepare study protocols according to the requirement of the claim to be substantiated and strictly adhere to the inclusion and exclusion criteria mentioned. Participants record their daily intake of food on calorie counting mobile applications and report their activity levels. Participants in weight management studies, for eg., are asked to maintain the same levels of diet and exercise that they were practicing before the study started. We also carefully evaluate the Indian spices or condiments and other food supplements that should be avoided during the study and mention in the study protocol accordingly. The participants are literate who are explained the study protocol thoroughly by the study coordinators. Thus, we don’t face any issues of non-compliance to the protocol in our studies.

Yes, only 10% of Vedic’s customer base is from India. Others are mostly from the United States, Europe, Australia and China. We are well aware about the regulatory requirements and marketing trends in each of these regions.
