Biopharma Trends That Will Impact The Industry In 2016
Biopharma Trends That Will Impact The Industry In 2016

The beginning of the year is always a good time to take a look ahead at the trends most likely to impact the industry in the coming months. One area that is changing quickly, and which promises to impact clinical trials in the coming years, is biopharma. I recently spoke with Jim Esinhart, CEO of Chiltern, about some of these trends, including study protocols, big data, mergers, and new technologies.

  • MDR-TB Study Requires A New Approach To Trials
    MDR-TB Study Requires A New Approach To Trials

    Otsuka Pharmaceutical has been an industry leader in TB drug development for over 30 years. The company is currently focused on MDR (multidrug-resistant)-TB, which refers to a form of the disease that is resistant to at least the two main first-line drugs available on the market.

    In a recent clinical trial, many of the sites lacked proper personnel, training, and equipment. Learn how the company overcame these challenges to make the trial a success.  

  • Do Your Clinical Trial Participants Feel Like Valued Customers?
    Do Your Clinical Trial Participants Feel Like Valued Customers?

    According to Roslyn F. Schneider MD, MSc, Global Patient Affairs Lead at Pfizer, patients can often have a feeling of being powerless, and be left with the impression they are there to serve the drug development process, and not the other way around. “There are times when it seems we are asking patients for their opinions simply so we can paste them in a pre-defined place in an existing system,” she says. “That is not how a company should be treating one of its most critical stakeholders. As an industry we need to continue to find new ways to incorporate participant feedback in a way that is good for patients, their families, and caregivers. This will be beneficial for our companies and societies as a whole since all of these stakeholders are very closely aligned.”

    Can You Guess What This Trial Is Using To Fight Obesity?

    A promising new diet may work wonders for helping individuals lose weight and fight obesity. The trial will involve taking fecal matter from the digestive tracts of healthy and thin humans, which would then be freeze-dried and put in a pill. Individuals in the study would then ingest the pills. The research does have some validity. Researchers at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston have discovered the microbes in digestive tracts of healthy individuals are different from those in obese individuals.
