  • Other Comments:

    The article ' Current Tends in Clinical Research: Indian Perspective' is written more like a news report rather than a research article. There is no solid data or no diagrams/figures. The authors should have provided the number of clinical trials in India, the categories based on diseases and by sponsorship, the amount of funding from overseas or by local sources etc. All this information would have made this better.

    There is a mistake not "800 billion"; it is million.
