Short overview of clinical trials in Lithuania

Publish date: 2013-02-27

Lithuania is treated as a favorable and friendly environment for clinical research. Since Lithuania had joined the European Union, the legislation process was harmonized with the EU’s regulations. With a short approval time and positive attitude of patients towards CR, Lithuania is an attractive place for many investors and sponsors.

The State Medicines Control Agency is the main government body responsible for clinical trials. Its duty is monitoring all the ongoing clinical trials in Lithuania. Generally, its main obligation is to control pharmaceutical activity and market of medicinal products in Lithuania that only good quality, safe and effective medicinal products would be available to the consumer. 


Number of clinical trial applications, 2004-2011
Number of submitted applications according to clinical trial Phase, 2004-2011


The SMCA maintains the list of ongoing clinical trials. Annually, they announce reports, which are available on its homepage. Since the 2004, number of clinical trials has been growing, until 2009 where global economic crisis occurred. In 2010, it showed a slow growth, which is maintained up to date.

The majority of studies in Lithuania are phase III, covering a broad range of therapeutic areas: oncology, endocrinology, cardiology, rheumatology, hematology, neurology, psychiatry, pulmonology, surgery, dermatology, gastroenterology, pediatric, ophthalmology, nephrology, infectology and urology.  

In Lithuania, access to National Health System is limited and medicines are relatively expensive. Therefore, participation in medicinal product clinical trials is frequently desired. As clinical research offers medical care, free medicine and diagnostic procedures, patient recruitment meets the expectations.

Sponsors will meet investigators who are highly motivated and experienced in clinical trials, with good understanding of local and EU regulations, and greatly enthusiastic patients. All this together creates excellent conditions for clinical research in Lithuania.
