Now It's Time for a Change - What You Should Know About the EU Regulation for Clinical Trials  

It is important to know the new procedures associated with clinical trials in the EU-region. The current system for clinical trials in the EU will be shortly reviewed, before the changes under the new Clinical Trial Regulation will be addressed. The new Regulation will change the way pharmaceutical companies handle clinical trials with sites located in the EU, and sponsors and investigators need to be prepared for it. 617

Challenges In Managing Clinical Trials in Asia 

Escalating research costs and limited patient pools have forced biotech and pharmaceutical companies to seek out emerging markets in Asia. However, the successful implementation of clinical trials in Asia can be impeded by issues arising from managerial, ethical, clinical/scientific, and regulatory aspects, as well as physicians/investigators and research participants. This talk will focus on efficient trial management strategies from the Asian perspective, and how various stakeholders related to clinical research can take a proactive approach to shape the emerging markets in Asia and ride this changing wave of drug discovery. 619

Self-Medication - A Little Too Regarded Aspect In Medical Research? 

Self-medication is a common form of healthcare practiced in most parts of the world. It can lead to waste of health resources, drug resistance and adverse reactions. The presentation focuses on a development of a calculation model and results of a study in which the model was applied to investigate the antibiotic self-medication rate in several geographical areas of a predefined country. 623
