TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 05, 2014) - During this webinar, industry experts will offer key insights to help the viewer gain a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges when conducting vaccines studies within Latin America.

Vaccines have helped to reduce the morbidity from vaccine-preventable diseases in the 20th century. Global, vaccine mega trials can be extremely challenging for many reasons -- everything from needing to quickly recruit difficult to enroll patient populations, to resourcing and trial logistics in high burden countries.

With a population of more than 580 million across 23 countries and a diverse ethnic mix, Latin America is proving increasingly attractive option for clinical trial development. The Latin American population exhibits a particular epidemiological profile and the prevalence of risk factors and diseases is similar to that within the EU or the US.

Many Latin American countries are realizing the importance of clinical research as an export services. This is helping to shape a more predictable regulatory environment with faster study start up and stronger IP protection. Learn how to navigate the regulatory landscape and to identify the right countries/sites for successful vaccines clinical studies (from phase II to IV) in Latin America.

The presenters will use case studies to help underpin some of the key considerations and to demonstrate particular learning points.
