The fast development of the Cuban pharmaceutical industry in the 90´s prompted the creation of structures to assure the clinical evaluation of products for their introduction into the medical practice and their further marketing. The National Coordinating Center of Clinical Trials was one of the most important centers founded to accomplish these objectives. The present paper showed in short the reasons behind the emergence of this center and its organizational development for more than 17 years. It also described the main components of the design and the conduction of clinical trials as well as their most significant contributions to fulfill the set objectives.
