Adhering to Good Clinical Practice: An Overview of Clinical Trials

Conducting clinical trials is not just treating patients—it is a controlled experiment with regulations to be followed. During the conduct of research involving human subjects, it is critical to adhere to principles of good clinical practice (GCP) and human subject protection (HSP). Good clinical practice is an international scientific and ethical quality standard for the design, conduct, execution, monitoring, auditing, recording, analysis, and reporting of all clinical trials that involve human subjects to ensure: • Protection of rights and safety of human subjects • Consistency with the Declaration of Helsinki • Accuracy and credibility of clinical trial data.Speaker:

Serialization in Pharmaceuticals

Serialization provides many benefits in addition to regulatory compliance, including improving patient safety, protecting corporate reputation, enhancing corporate social responsibility, and providing a competitive advantage. There is also value in data collected through serialization efforts. Manufacturers are discovering different ways to make best use of the data being returned by their supply chain partners. Moreover, counterfeiting of drugs and medical devices costs the pharmaceutical and medical device industry billions of dollars annually in lost revenues. This loss is amplified by the serious threats fake drugs pose to the health and safety of consumers.Our speaker from Bristol-Myers Squibb, one of the first companies to understand the multiple benefits of item level serialization, as he examines serialization and it use in fighting counterfeit drugs.Speaker:

How to Ensure Pharmacovigilance Practices are Compliant with Global Safety Requirements: Challenges in Asia-Pacific

Although PV activities such as handling Individual Case Safety Reports (ICSRs), writing Periodic Safety Update Reports (PSURs) and Risk Management Plans (RMPs) are standard processes managed by pharmaceutical companies, the way such activities are regulated by various Regulators is not always harmonized. Requirements and timelines can vary greatly amongst Regulators and are not always consistent with International Standards. As a result pharmaceutical companies need to ensure they comply with the various requirements and timelines from international Regulators. This webinar will focus on ensuring compliance with international and local country specific PV Requirements from an Asia-Pacific perspective.Speaker:

Biosimilar Regulatory Guidelines in Emerging Markets-India

For companies embarking on a biosimilar drug development program, the goal is clear, but the road to get there is less so. If you can scientifically demonstrate that a biologic product is highly similar to the approved biologic, you’ll be able to abbreviate and reduce the burden of preclinical and clinical trials data package as part of submission for market authorization. The Indian Government has developed and issued guidelines which apply to similar biologics that contain well characterized proteins as their active substance, derived through modern biotechnological methods such as the use of recombinant DNA technology.Speaker:

Temperature Controlled Distribution and Risk management

Cold chain logistics is currently one of the biggest growth areas in the pharmaceutical industry, particularly for companies operating in emerging markets such as Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). The process will allow companies to cut costs and reduce waste through their supply chain but at the same time there is a need to maintain compliance with regulations specific to this region. The safe handling of vaccines as well as other temperature sensitive products and materials has given rise to a need for stronger vigilance with regards to the integrity of cool chain in the region. Transgressions not only result in regulatory non-compliance issues but also cost dearly in terms of meeting supply deadlines and product wastage.Speaker:
