Investigational Products

The process of product shipment to Brazil can be different from experience in product shipment to other countries.  

The law in Brazil, RDC 172 of  September, 80th  2017, specifies the product import for clinical trials. This recent and new law has smoothed the process avoiding all issues and delays that may have happened before in Brazil. 

CIDP Brazil strongly recommend you to use FEDEX as the international Courier.

Every clinical study conducted in CIDP Brazil must follow ethics standards, based on GCP-ICH and on our local legislation (Res. 466/2012) and must be reviewed by a local Independent Ethics Committee (IEC).

The timeframe for the evaluation by the local IEC depends on the complexity of the project, but normally takes up to one month (from submission to outcome report issue).
