The CMUH deal is designed to give Novotech clients:
The CTC of CMUH was established in 2008 and has been led by distinguished Professor Chung Y.
In 2016 CTC CMUH joined the "International Clinical Trials Center Network" (ICN) which includes Switzerland Zurich University, US Harvard University, UK Cambridge University and HK University.
Under the terms of the MOU, the CMUH will provide professional and medical clinical trial advice to the Novotech team including feasibility, principal investigator selection, and assistance with patient recruitment.
Patients who were transferred to other hospitals for western treatment during the trial might have found it inconvenient to return to the CMUH to receive our treatment due to either distance or time constraints and, therefore, dropped out of the study.
