Pharmaceutical Abuse Liability Assessment "…Are You Up to Speed?", Live Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - November 11, 2014) - This webinar will focus on the drivers for testing and the type of drugs candidates likely to need abuse liability assessment, in light of the regulatory requirements for liability testing globally, as outlined by FDA, ICH, EMA recent guidelines. The live broadcast will take place on Wednesday, November 19, 2014 at 11am EST (4pm GMT).

In recent years there has been increased attention to the area of abuse liability by regulatory agencies. Abuse liability may represent a risk to the development portfolio, may lead to project delay or termination and may limit patients' access to medicines because of the increased complexity in physician prescription process. Therefore, the absence of abuse potential and of scheduling of a drug by regulatory authorities will represent a major commercial advantage as well as a significant benefit for public health.

Join keynote speaker Maria Pilla, Head of Nervous System and Electrophysiology Safety Pharmacology, Preclinical Biosciences, at Aptuit Center for Drug Discovery and Development (Verona, Italy), as she focuses on the drivers for testing and the type of drugs candidates likely to need abuse liability assessment, in light of the regulatory requirements for liability testing globally, as outlined by FDA, ICH, EMA recent guidelines. Further, practical and pragmatic approaches to preclinical assessment of liability testing of novel CNS-active candidates will be presented, and the translation of these predicative tests (from early in-vitro screens to in-vivo behavioural studies on dependence/withdrawal, self-administration) debated. Finally, the best implementation strategies and the ideal timing of testing will be thoroughly analysed.
