Description

‘The cost of developing an innovative drug ..... (is) now exceeding the widely quoted figure of US$802 million. Whatever the true cost, however, it is clear that late-stage clinical failures account for a large proportion of the expenses’
A. D. Schachter & M. F. Ramoni, 2007. Nature Reviews Drug Discovery 6, 107-108

As highlighted in the quote above late stage drug attrition accounts for a substantial amount of total development costs. Consequently, there is a strong impetus to improve predictive toxicology technology and assays to forecast toxicity and efficacy of compounds as early as possible in development without stifling the development of potentially safe, profitable drugs.

Pharma IQ is delighted to announce the date for the 3rd Annual Predictive Toxicology Conference which will help you to increase the accuracy of drug safety testing through the integration of advanced prediction methods, including stem cell based assays and screening into your safety evaluation strategy. The main conference will take place in London on 23rd-24th February 2011 and new for this year, there will be a pre-conference focus day on 22nd February 2011 dedicated to the use of stem cells as a tool to enhance predictive toxicology.
