Emerging Markets Clinical Expertise: Webinar Looks at Current and Future Strategies

Key Areas Include Patient Enrollment and Regulatory Differences, From Cutting Edge Information

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC--(Marketwire - November 17, 2010) - Cutting Edge Information continues its series of webinars on Clinical Development in Emerging Markets today. "On Top of the World: Decoding Clinical Operations in Emerging Markets," provides a comprehensive look at different clinical landscapes in developing economies.

Pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and other life science companies currently conduct thousands of clinical trials in the United States, Western Europe and other established markets. However, clinical development teams find it increasingly difficult to meet the patient enrollment numbers needed to give a new treatment the best chance of regulatory approval.

"Life science companies have focused on the 'BRIC' markets (Brazil, Russia, India and China) for several years," said Adam Bianchi, chief operating officer of Cutting Edge Information. "Now, they're looking at both BRIC and the newer countries for access to roughly three billion potential new clinical trial volunteers. That's several times the medically eligible and treatment naïve patient population in the established markets."

This week's webinar presentation is based on recent clinical management research for Brazil, Russia, India, China, Africa, Mexico, Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia and South America.

"Questions of quality, different regulatory frameworks, intellectual property laws and cost structures can be incredibly complex for clinical development teams working globally," said Eric Bolesh, director of research at Cutting Edge Information. "You need to understand the advantages and challenges before choosing a particular location for a particular trial."

Bolesh will lead the webinar discussion including strategies and tactics for successful data quality delivery, site management and technology infrastructure. 'Next practices' to build a positive reputation among investigators, patients, governments and other key stakeholders are a critical part of the new research as well.

Clinical development stakeholders can join the discussion through Cutting Edge Information's secure registration page:
