The key findings reported by Dr Naci and his colleagues from the University of Pennsylvania and Stanford University included: · Randomised trials -- the gold standard of evaluating clinical effectiveness -- constituted only a small minority of existing evidence; · One-third of randomised trials were in therapeutic areas outside of FDA approval and less than half evaluated the therapeutic benefit of these drugs, but used them instead as common backbone treatments; · Drugs receiving accelerated approval were often tested concurrently in different therapeutic areas; · For most drugs no substantial time lag was apparent between the average start date of trials evaluating their effectiveness and their use as background therapy. "Major flaws in US drugs with 'accelerated' approval, research suggests." Science Daily. A major review of the available evidence on the safety and efficacy of statin therapy intends to help doctors, patients and the public make informed decisions about the use of the drugs. A federal database meant to report the financial ties between doctors and drug and device makers debuted Sept. Despite those flaws, the public should give the ...
When obtaining a quote for manufacture of an investigational medicinal product (IMP), the requirement to provide data for the new dosage form are all too often not considered, and this can be a costly oversight.
Clinical research involving placebos or comparator products are likely to require modification of a dosage form of a product to render it indistinguishable from another product (for example – over encapsulation or film coating of a product).

paper will highlight Australia as a cost-effective, streamlined and high-quality clinical research destination for conducting early-phase clinical research studies.
ERT has been selected for its impact in improving and accelerating new pharmaceutical product development, specifically for delivering critical safety and efficacy data that supported more than 50% of all FDA new drug approvals over the past four years.
“ERT deserves to be celebrated for their achievements and contributions to advancing the technology, healthcare and life sciences industries throughout the region,” said Dianne Strunk, Vice President, PACT.
A special thank you to the speaking faculty, attendees, sponsors and exhibitors who came together to brainstorm, discuss real-world experiences and ultimately advance clinical trials.
"It was a very beneficial one and it is directly relevant to our current work.Although the median time from patent filing to approval for oncology drugs has fallen from 10.3 years in 2013 to 9.5 years in 2015, high costs and lengthy trial timelines remain barriers to new drugs entering...Before we set our Trials Acceleration Programme up a researcher could have a great idea, but might not have everything they needed to get a trial off the ground, like access to a hospital and research nurses.Drugs eligible for accelerated approval are assessed as "reasonably likely" to provide clinical benefits but the bar for their market entry is far lower than those receiving regular approval, according to Dr Huseyin Naci, an LSE health policy researcher.Dr Naci said: "FDA's accelerated approval pathway allows potentially promising drugs to receive marketing authorisation on the basis of surrogate measures that are easy to obtain, rather than clinically meaningful outcomes.“We are pleased to recognize ERT as they truly embody an innovative spirit and represent the future of the region’s economy.” “We are proud to be recognized as a PACT Technology Company Award finalist and to be considered one of Philadelphia’s leading life science companies,” said James Corrigan, President and CEO of ERT.
