Second Annual- Translating Oncology Therapies from the Lab to Proof of Concept

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Strategic Early Development Planning & Management to Avoid High Failure Rates in Innovative Cancer Therapeutics

payday loans online in texasviagra in indiabuying viagra online uk

Conference Dates: 12-13th October, 2011
Venue: Vienna, Austria

When running early clinical trials for experimental new drugs across a range of therapeutic areas, demonstrating “proof of concept” is a critical milestone of the development process, yet one that is very difficult to achieve. It is at this stage where exploratory studies become confirmatory studies and there is a basis for studying the efficacy in a larger population.

Due to the prevalence, diversity and complexity of cancer, oncology clinical trials have evolved along a different path than trials for other therapeutic areas and trial failure rates are amongst the highest amongst all therapy areas. The toxicity ratings, patient recruitment and stratification, and the regulatory and ethical aspects are all challenging considerations specific to oncology trials.

It is widely acknowledged that the current oncology clinical trial system is in desperate need of new breakthroughs as costs are increasing, and the regulatory authorities impose more extensive and complex regulatory guidelines. In recent years, the regulatory bodies have become more receptive to more advanced phase 0 micro-dosing studies, as well as adaptive clinical trials where predetermined modifications can occur in an ongoing study. Challenges in accelerating the proof of concept of oncology drugs include knowing how to integrate multiple disciplines and the latest scientific techniques and weighing the demand made by different stakeholders to make logical decisions earlier with the right information.

This two day event will showcase essential industry, scientific, ethical, academic and regulatory perspectives regarding the latest and most critical issues surrounding early-phase oncology drug development. Experts in the field will talk about their experiences in the pre-clinical, translational and clinical development and how they created a program that satisfies all stakeholders.

Attendees of this event will learn how to utilize resources and the latest science and satisfy major regulations to efficiently translate laboratory theories into clinical practice and achieve proof of concept for innovative oncology therapeutics.

Why Attend?
• Discover the most efficient methods of creating an advanced pre-clinical and translational program to understand disease biology and drug mechanism of action and to obtain approval for FIH studies
• Meet highly experienced experts that are directly involved in anti-cancer agent clinical trial design and implementation.
• Learn about the regulatory requirements in North America and Europe for small and large molecules.
• Work-out the best ways of integrating advanced biomarkers, delivery systems, modelling & simulation, micro-dosing and adaptive trials into your clinical programs.

Who will benefit?
Experienced executives from Pharma, Biotechs and Academia involved in:
oncology drug development

VPs, Professors, Senior Directors and Managers involved in:
biologics, small molecules, discovery, pre-clinical development, exploratory development, early phase clinical development, clinical operations, clinical science, clinical pharmacology, biomarkers, senior scientists, licensing, translational medicine, regulatory affairs, therapy area heads, and R&D.

Pricing and Reimbursement in The United Kingdom during Significant Healthcare Reform

Monday, July 25th, 2011

Demonstrating product value to NICE, NHS trusts & key opinion leaders

Conference Dates: 5-6th October, 2011
Venue: London, UK
The UK Coalition Government has recently initiated a significant healthcare reform which in reality, presents both major challenges and opportunities to payers, policy-makers and the pharmaceutical industry.

payday loans interest rate

The main components that will affect the pharmaceutical industry include a shift in the role of N.I.C.E. from the gatekeeper of market access to making strong, yet non-binding recommendations regarding cost-effectiveness of treatments. Decisions will be decentralized and delegated to the local-level as “GP Consortia”, who are closer to the patient will be empowered to reimburse based on local need. Furthermore, the existing Pharmaceutical Pricing & reimbursement Scheme (PPRS) will expire and the move will be made to an ambitious value-based pricing model from 2014. For the NHS too, value-based pricing can help to encourage that future applications for reimbursement and premium prices will only be met if the therapy will treat real public health concerns for a rapidly ageing population, improve quality of life and keep patients out of expensive hospital treatments and the burden on health budgets.

Current patient-access (risk-sharing) models may no longer fit under the new decentralised healthcare system and pharmaceutical companies in the UK are restructuring commercial operations to adjust access schemes to new models and decision-making processes.

This event will not only describe current and upcoming healthcare reforms but will also clarify how market-access and reimbursement decisions might proceed and with what effects.

Why Attend?
• Focus on the most influential European market, that is central to global pricing strategy and a traditional pioneer in health technology assessment.
• Evaluate how pricing and reimbursement will be affected under the on-going NHS reform.
• Hear policy makers’ and payers’ views, initiatives and incentives on how the system will work in practice.
• Learn how innovation will be measured and rewarded in the UK in the near future.
• Understand all stakeholders’ roles in the increasingly decentralised decision-making process in the new healthcare reform.
• Find out more about the value-based pricing initiatives and their affect on pricing, market access and competition.
• Network with key decision makers who are involved in designing and implementing this significant reform.

Who will benefit?
Pharmaceutical and Medical devices companies:
Vice-Presidents, Directors, Managers involved in:
Pricing & Reimbursement, Health Economics & Outcomes, Government & Stakeholder Relations, Regulatory Affairs, Medical Affairs, Marketing, Therapy Area Heads, Market Access, Country Managers
Solution providers & consultants:
CEOs, Business Development, Senior Consultants, Regional Heads
Independent Academics, Health Economists, Government Officials, Public & Private Healthcare Providers, Senior Doctors, &Patient Representatives.

Preparing for the drug therapies required to combat tomorrow’s illnesses of high socioeconomic impact

ordering real viagra from canada

Conference Dates: 4-5th October, 2011
Venue: London, UK

It is now widely known that healthcare systems around the world are already under significant budgetary pressure, with the prognosis for the future looking far from positive. Ageing populations, growing incidents of chronic disease that effect large patient populations, costly acute specialty conditions, expensive treatments for rare-diseases and the widespread use of more effective, yet expensive drugs and technologies are some of the main drivers. Governments are well aware that investing in a healthier population results in a richer and happier population. Medicines that can dramatically improve quality of life can help to keep patients out of expensive hospital care and often back into the workforce as productive members of society.

The economic value of such treatments are often exceptional and easily measurable. Despite years of health reform and cost-containment policy implementation, only some of the symptoms have been treated effectively, but the underlying cause needs urgent attention before costs for payers spiral out of control. There often seems to be a disconnect between what therapies payers and policy makers need and see as public health priorities worthy of investment and what products pharma companies and medical manufacturers are bringing to the market. Drug developers take extreme risks in bringing new drugs to the market, spending over a billion dollars per therapy and investing over 10 years on average in R&D time and still face very high failure rates. This investment needs to be more targeted at least to the areas that payers define as unmet need and of high value for such extreme risks to be worthwhile taking. Considerable progress has been made on both sides, with payers increasingly “scanning horizons” to find out what drugs and devices will affect their budgets in the coming years, whilst manufacturers have paid much more attention to receiving scientific advice from payers earlier in the clinical trials process.

There is also confusion with regards to the definition of “innovation” and how much payers are willing to invest in “innovations”. Novel classes of small and large molecules with exciting mechanisms of action may only have slight therapeutic benefits over existing drugs, whilst “incremental innovations” of older drugs could alternatively also improve outcomes at significantly less cost. A solid understanding of what “innovations” are required for the public good is a question that needs to be answered today so that industry can develop the drug pipelines of tomorrow for the benefit of society.

Why this event?
• Discuss payers and policy makers views regarding their disease indications and public health investment priorities today and in the future.
• Understand what are the payer’s priorities to make long-term R&D investment decisions.
• Learn what are products that payers want to pay for and will generate return on investment.
• Help encourage medical “innovation” and to improve patient access to high-value medications and devices.

Who will benefit?

PAYERS & POLICY MAKERS: Senior representatives from Payers, health plans & insurers, Public health experts, health technology assessors, hospital financial management, government & health ministry officials, health management and managed care organizations, epidemiology, horizon scanning, scientific advice, pharmacy strategy & budget management.

Upcoming World Smart Grid India Week 2011 to Address Key Challenges and Issues for India Smart Grid Roll-out

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

India, the largest democratic state, has the fifth largest electricity grid and third largest Transmission & Distribution network respectively in the world. However, due to the dramatically increasing economic activities and rising electricity consumption, there has been a significant challenge to face for Indian government. Origins of India’s smart grid efforts are multi-factorial in nature but primarily concern three main issues which are the subject of current or planned government backed initiatives: 1) Balance the supply and demand of the power market; 2) Electrify a large segment of its rural population to receive electrical services; 3) Optimize electrical usage by being able to manage loads and mitigate operating inefficiencies. Furthermore, central government involvement in the smart grid has expanded beyond the confines of Ministry of Power into an inter-department task force known as India Smart Grid Task Force.
