Accelerating Drug Development Through Drug & Companion Diagnostic Co-development, New Life Science Webinar Hosted by Xtalks
Date:10/2/2013

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) October 02, 2013

The past decade has seen a transition from the traditional model of drug development to a more targeted, personalized approach to drug development and clinical trial design. The use of a companion diagnostic strategy is increasingly an essential component of the drug development process where it facilitates optimal patient stratification and outcome management. Parallel development of the drug and its companion diagnostic assay affords simplified logistics, economies of scale and the potential to accelerate the drug development process through optimal patient selection. The application of the companion diagnostic within the corresponding drug trial also provides valuable insight into the use of the companion diagnostic in a clinical setting and produces valuable data to support the regulatory filing of both the drug and the companion diagnostic.

Dr. Mark Roberts, Director of Diagnostic Development at Covance, will discuss the emerging field of companion diagnostics with focus on its importance in clinical trial design and how drug / companion diagnostic co-development is rapidly changing the drug development process.

A Q&A with the audience will follow the main presentation.
