Life Sciences, Pharmaceutical Regulation, Pharmaceutical, Medical Device, Emerging Market, Medical Device Safety and Regulation,
  • Thursday, June 06, 2013

Clinical research in Southeast Asia, as well as positioning for product registration and commercialization, is increasingly central to multinational drug development programs
. The S.E. Asia region combines many of the elements western sponsors require including: vibrant urban healthcare system, English as the business language, first rate medical credentials of Investigators and progressive Regulatory to ensure quality data and patient safety.

Commercialization is key, as the region is home to 60% of the world’s population and growing rapidly; expected to exceed 5.6B by 2050. There is a growing educated middle class suffering from ‘western’ diseases because of economic prosperity so they’re therefore more interested in health and aging issues, benefitting clinical research development.

  • It has been anticipated that S.E. Asia’s pharmaceutical and device market could reach a size of $20B by 2015, becoming one of the top 10 drug markets in the world.

The S.E. Asia region offers a venue for faster recruitment and more cost effective trials in addition to rapidly growing markets for product registration and commercialization to the over 1.5B population size.

Join us for this live event with interactive Q&A as we discuss:

  • Clinical research scenario in S.E. Asia
  • Market opportunity, registration
  • New regulatory & safety guidelines
