Current issues come under the spotlight at The Applied Clinical Trials European Summit 2006


The complex regulations and procedures which govern the running of clinical trials are in the spotlight now, more than ever before. Delegates at the Applied Clinical Trials European Summit, 17 – 19 October 2006, will hear the latest perspectives on a range of highly topical issues from some of the most respected professionals in the field.

Safety remains the overriding priority in clinical development, and to gain a clean bill of health it is vital to have an intimate knowledge of the new regulations and requirements of authorities, as well as an understanding of the relationships between trial partners throughout the development cycle. In the plenary session on Wednesday 19th October, delegates at the ACT Summit 2006 will hear professionals from across Europe discuss Improving drug safety and public health by rigorous pharmacovigilance. Other plenary sessions will deal with regulatory updates, outsourcing strategies and challenges at investigative sites.

In a series of interactive workshops, delegates will have the opportunity to delve into more specific topics in clinical trials. In Making progress in biotechnology trials, delegates will learn about the requirements and approaches of authorities on biotech studies, the impact of EU Clinical Trials Directive, and will hear an overview of immunogenicity, monoclonals, and comparability and biosimilars. Better trial methodology and design will demystify the theory and practice in the new approaches, including adaptive designs. Ten additional workshops cover diverse topics ranging from Positive and consistent outcomes from ethics committees to The complexities of fraud and scientific misconduct.
