In the news

HungaroTrial CRO was featured in a March 2013 interview with, the Central European Biotechnology Portal, to discuss its successes as a CRO and how it has been able to achieve this success throughout its 13 year history.

What do you think has been your biggest achievement since the establishment of the company?

To define only one achievement would be difficult as we have had many successes in our        13 year history here in CEE.  However, what we consider to be most important is the consistent trust bestowed upon us by biotech and pharmaceutical companies from the United States to carry out studies in the region.  This respect strengthens our worldwide reputation and brings repeat clients from the EU and US.”,134



In May 2010, HungaroTrial was mentioned in the prestigious GEN – Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News journal, highlighted among the rising stars of the Hungarian biotech scene and portrayed as a prominent regional CRO in Central and Eastern Europe.

"Hungary is a good location for clinical trials, so HungaroTrial, a CRO for Phases I to IV, is doing well. It has been profitable from the start and has carried out 63 clinical trials in CEE countries, CEO Lajos Sarosi, M.D., says. It is also developing business in the U.S. and counts Roche, GSK, Wyeth, and Sanofi-Aventis among its customers. It will soon start work in Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Russia.
