On August 4, 2023 the Latvian Pulmonary Hypertension Association, Pulmonālās Hipertensijas Biedrība (PHB), held an event in Riga, the capital of Latvia, to celebrate its 12th anniversary. Check out our article about this event at this link.
The association took this occasion to launch a new and very useful resource for patients. The new booklet, titled “Klīniskie petījumi” (Clinical Trials), serves as a comprehensive guide, meticulously outlining the various stages within the drug approval process, with a specific focus on the context of Latvia. Its content is enriched by useful tables and attractive illustrations.
“In this booklet, we have paid particular attention to the importance of informed consent, when a patient agrees to take part in a study,” notes Ieva Plūme, President of PHA Latvia and author of the text.
