Breaking News on Contract Research, Manufacturing & Clinical Trials

Wednesday March 27th 2014

It is a well-established principal that even the most promising API, monoclonal antibody or therapeutic peptide can only be turned into an effective and marketable drug if formulated in such a way that it reaches the blood stream and is bioavailable.
But, while this characteristic - bioavailability - has been the focus of lab scientists, clinical researchers and process developers’ efforts for many years, finding the solution that gives a particular drug the desired profile is still a major headache for pharmaceutical firms.
Similarly, biopharmaceutical firms hoping to develop oral delivery alternatives for injectable biologics will also need to work out how to ensure that their products are bioavailable, safe and effective.
Our virtual event will bring together expert regulators, academics and the drug industry scientists to define the challenges and share the latest research breakthroughs to help you make the decisions that will let you overcome your Bioavailability Challenge.

Cancer drug development is the most complex challenge faced by the drug industry today, with clinical trials being the most technically difficult, time consuming and expensive aspect of the process.


Recruiting patients, monitoring sites and analysing complex data can be daunting for cost-sensitive pharmas, which is why more and more turn to CROs with oncology expertise to help tap the lucrative cancer therapeutics market.


The Oncology Trials Outsourcing conference will examine the contract oncology research sector: the strategies that work and those that don’t; the path to success and hurdles to avoid, with expert opinion and industry insight.


We’ll also look to the future and discuss the emerging trends and hot topics, from adaptive protocols to personalized medicines that will be critical to success for pharmas seeking to create the next generation of treatments.
