A brave new Europe with the introduction of the EU Clinical Trials Directive: Impact upon the pharma industry and academic research with special emphasis on pharmacovigilance

Go to paper

ABSTRACT: 1st May, 2004, saw the national implementation of the EU Clinical Trials Directive (2001/20 EEC). Additionally, Europe changed from 15 to 25 member states, all implementing the Directive nationally at the same time and all being affected by the many and varied aspects covered in the Directive. The paper looks at the new changes to European clinical trials and what this will mean for the pharmaceutical industry and research academia alike, especially in relation to safety reporting and risk/benefit assessments.

Abstract

The importance of the business development and licensing (BD&L) function in the global biopharmaceutical industry has grown significantly over the past 20 years as pharmaceutical companies have sought to supplement their internal R&D with innovative products and technologies sourced from biotechnology and drug delivery companies. This has required companies to employ BD&L executives to search, evaluate, negotiate and alliance manage deals ranging from small biotechnology companies to the largest of the Big Pharma companies. Nowadays all the large companies have BD&L teams, sometimes in excess of 100 people. To inform new BD&L entrants and to improve the professionalism of the experienced BD&L executives, various training courses are offered by not-for-profit associations and commercial organisations. The leading not-for-profit association in Europe for biopharmaceutical executives is the Pharmaceutical Licensing Group and in the US it is the Licensing Executive Society. Both organisations offer basic training courses but as far as is known, the only university accredited Master’s degree qualification in BD&L is the distance learning MSc offered by the University of Manchester. The dissemination of specialist knowledge and best practice is through the journals and conferences of the professional associations. The need for well-qualified BD&L executives in the biopharmaceutical industry is demonstrated by the fact that 25% or more of Big Pharma sales come from third party products and the cost of licensing deals alone is over $200m on average.

Fostering the process of adoption of personalised medicine: A matter of communication or a matter of cost?

Go to paper

ABSTRACT: Pharmacogenetics, along with its derived products, diagnostic tests and customised medicines, has been introduced to the market with high commercial expectations (derived from its obvious science-based benefits). Nevertheless, its commercial success is far below that is expected. Although the favourable arguments for its development are sufficiently documented in the literature, the reality of the market forces the consideration of a scenario with less optimistic elements...
