The Centro de Oftalmología Barraquer (Barraquer Ophthalmology Centre) is an Institution with a strong grounding in research, a field where clinical studies are also emphasised. Since the establishment of Clínica Barraquer (Barraquer Clinic), to date the number of proposals for clinical trial performance has constantly been increasing. The Barraquer Opthalmology Centre's Comité Ético de Investigación Clínica, CEIC (Clinical Research Ethics Committee) was established in 1993 to comply with Law 25/1990 of 20 December concerning medicine, which states that all clinical trial projects with medicine and health products must be previously approved by a Clinical Research Ethics Committee, which must be accredited by the competent authority, which in the case of Catalonia is the Department of Health and Social Security of the Generalitat (Regional Government) of Catalonia.
