Upcoming Webinar to Examine the Challenges of Pharmacovigilance in Early Phase Clinical Trials

TORONTO, ON --(Marketwired - April 11, 2016) - On Wednesday, April 27, 2016, Xtalks will host a complimentary webinar featuring Tom Nichols, Senior Director of Pharmacovigilance at Quanticate as the presenter.

Pharmacovigilance (PV) is a challenging field and identifying and minimizing risks is a complex process never more so than in early phase clinical trials. New adverse events (AEs) continue to be added to the list of expected events for a certain product, years after it has been licensed and treated millions of people. So how can a Sponsor hope to characterize the safety of an Investigational Medicinal Product (IMP) during their early phase 'safety' studies, with such limited data and patient numbers, why is it so important to get it right at this stage and what are the knock-on effects if it is done badly?

The webinar looks to highlight some of the major challenges of PV in early phase clinical trials and what can be done to overcome them. We demonstrate the importance of PV in early phase clinical trials and how it is not just a check box exercise to satisfy regulatory bodies. There will be a particular focus on oncology, where patients can be expected to have multiple complex and confounding comorbidities and treatments.

This session is designed for those starting out in their drug safety career in clinical trials, or those with post-marketing experience looking for a change in focus and who want to understand how PV applies to early phase clinical trials.
