The Application of Good Clinical Practice in Nutrition Research

European Journal of Clinical Nutrition. 2012;66(12):1280-1281

Good Clinical Practices (GCP) is equally important for nutrition trials as it is for pharmaceutical trials, and is equally applicable to nutrition trials. GCP offers the flexibility to adopt a proportionate approach that will not hinder innovation and scientific knowledge gathering, but will stimulate high quality and safe nutrition research. It is up to investigators and sponsors in the nutrition area to use this flexibility to make the implementation of GCP fit to the specific requirements and risks involved in their research. The objectives of the activity were to write an editorial in which those aspects of GCP that are relevant for nutrition research were discussed. The manuscript has been submitted and accepted in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition (EJCN).
