Summary  
China has the largest patient population in the world and thus offers a unique opportunity to conduct global, regional and local clinical trials.  However there are significant differences on GCP regulations and practices between US and China.  Such an asymmetry in regulations produces both opportunities and challenges for running an efficient and yet quality clinical trials in China.  This presentation would compare and contrast GCP regulations and practices between US and China, and try to predict what will happen next.
