Pharmacogenetic and biomarker research is rapidly progressing to enable understanding
of human disease and drug response. During clinical drug development, the
pharmaceutical industry commonly requests collection of samples for future research in
order to investigate important new emergent scientific findings on how drugs relate to
human health and disease. These include studies to explore mechanisms of drug action,
response to therapies, and adverse events or to research subpopulations that emerge
during clinical trials. However, considerable challenges exist to the collection of future
use samples.
Meet with global industry, regulatory and academic leaders to investigate the current
barriers to the optimal collection of samples for future research related to drug response
or disease characterization. Identify best practices and needed actions to improve
current global collection of future use samples in clinical trials. This conference will be
divided into 3 working sessions to look at key issues for future use sample collection in
Japan, Europe, and the US/Canada.
