Dementia Clinical Research in India


Journal Article (Chapter)

There is considerable interest, both nationally and internationally, in conducting dementia research in India. Motivated by a rapid increase in the aging population and a desire for indigenous, self-sufficient healthcare and medical research, dementia research in India is on course for rapid growth in the coming years. Several challenges will have to be overcome along the way. A solid and general clinical research culture and a supportive healthcare system, both tailored to the specific needs of the dementia field and its vulnerable patient population, will have to be established through careful guidance of government regulators and collaborations with academic, industry and public stakeholders both in and outside India. © 2014 Elsevier Inc.
