Clinical Trials and Evidence-Based Syntheses Research Unit (CTEBs RU)

The Clinical Trials and Evidence-Based Syntheses Research Unit (CTEBs RU) was established in 2018 as part of the Faculty of Pharmacy, Mahasarakham University.  This RU focuses on clinical trial and evidence-based synthesis studies for both non-pharmacotherapy and pharmacotherapy interventions including herbal and alternative medicines. The goal of the research is to serve healthcare professionals and policy makers to find the cumulative effects of medicines, herbal medicines, and health care interventions for patients.
