Clinical research is of paramount relevance for the development of new pharmaceuticals and other medical treatments as well as for securing and optimisation of their application in routine practice. All clinical studies are regulated by the German pharmaceuticals law (Arzneimittelgesetz, AMG), insofar as they assess the efficacy, safety or metabolisation of pharmaceuticals with the aim to test their safety of efficacy. This type of clinical studies is called "clinical trial" ("klinische Prüfung").

German policy-making has undertaken important steps to strengthen clinical research in Germany. However, the industry continues to complain about disadvantages in the competition with other countries. Although the number of clinical studies has been rising during the last years, this increase has been significantly bigger in some competing countries. In the long run this could impact on employment and supply of patients with innovative pharmaceuticals, as new products are introduced preferredly in those countries in which the clinical trials had taken place.
