SMi - Geriatric Safe Medicines Summit

16 Sep 2013 - 17 Sep 2013 - London, UK



Bookmark and Share


Clinical research in geriatric patient populations requires the adaptation of traditional clinical procedures in research studies. A relatively new area of research, geriatric patient studies requires a collaboration between many different stakeholders within this field to identify and overcome the challenges involved in recruiting, treating and retaining study subjects. Join SMi as we look to address these issues with new and innovative thinking and approaches that are being applied to geriatric clinical studies.

KEY REASONS TO ATTEND

Discover the benefits of performing clinical trials in older people

Identify the key challenges and considerations when conducting clinical trials in older people

Address reasons for clinical trial retention difficulties

Discuss how modelling and simulation along with new patient reporting systems support clinical trials in older people

Explore new market gaps and discover new market strategy

Focus on the EMA geriatric medicines strategy

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS INCLUDE:

Solange Rohou, Director of Regulatory Affairs, AstraZeneca

Barbro Westerholm, Member of Parliament, Sweden, Liberal Party

Florian Von Raison, Global Programme Head, Novartis

Nina Barnett, Consultant Pharmacologist, Northwest London's Hospital NHS Trust

Philippe Guillet, Strategy Head, Sanofi

Michael Richardson, VP International and QPPV EU GPV&E, Bristol Myers Squibb

Keeping Tumor Growth at Bay
Engineers at Washington University in St. Louis found a way to keep a cancerous tumor from growing by using nanoparticles of the main ingredient in common antacid tablets.
Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours
Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.
Future of Medicine Could be Found in a Tiny Crystal Ball
A Drexel University materials scientist has discovered a way to grow a crystal ball in a lab. Not the kind that soothsayers use to predict the future, but a microscopic version that could be used to encapsulate medication in a way that would allow it to deliver its curative payload more effectively inside the body.
Bile Acid Supports Production of Blood Stem Cells
A research group at Lund University has been able to show that bile acid is transferred from the mother to the foetus via the placenta to enable the foetus to produce blood stem cells.
Chemical Used to Replace BPA is Potentially Toxic
This study is the first to examine the effects of BPA and BPS on brain cells and genes that control the growth and function of organs involved in reproduction.
A Better Model for Parkinson's
Scientists at EPFL solve a longstanding problem with modeling Parkinson’s disease in animals. Using newfound insights, they improve both cell and animal models for the disease, which can propel research and drug development.
Improving Delivery of Poorly Soluble Drugs Using Nanoparticles
A technology that could forever change the delivery of drugs is undergoing evaluation by the Technology Evaluation Consortium™ (TEC). Developed by researchers at Northeastern University, the technology is capable of creating nanoparticle structures that could deliver drugs into the bloodstream orally – despite the fact that they are normally poorly soluble.
Toxicity Testing With Cultured Liver Cells
Microreactor replaces animal testing.
Neural Networks Adapt to the Presence of a Toxic HIV Protein
HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) afflict approximately half of HIV infected patients.
Faster Drug Discovery?
Startup develops more cost-effective test for assessing how cells respond to chemicals.
