How are diabetes trials showing the need for a paradigm shift in clinical trial approaches

Some estimate that it now takes $2b to develop a compound to market. Not only is this unsustainable for patients and caregivers, it is unsustainable for industry if drug development no longer becomes a profitable exercise.

What changes are urgently required? What novel developments are occurring? Which ones can be applied practically? Professor Bruce Neal, noted thought leader in diabetes research and clinical trial methodology discusses these points, drawing on his vast experience in cardiovascular and diabetes trials in Asia Pacific and around the world.

Register now to learn more about practical yet novel ways to improve clinical trial quality and efficiency.
