CINCINNATI, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Medpace, a leading global full-service contract research organization, announced that Jim Wei, MD, PhD, Medpace Director of Clinical Pharmacology, will address three international conferences in China in May. He will speak at the Impact China IV Conference in Beijing, at the International Workshop on Mass Spectrometry and New Drug Development in Hangzhou, and at the International Society for the Study of Xenobiotics in Shanghai.

At the Impact China IV Conference in Beijing, China on 4-6 May, Dr. Wei will speak on "The Role of Foreign Data and FDA Requirements." In his presentation he will discuss how both pre-clinical and clinical data from foreign countries has increased in Investigational New Drug Application (IND), New Drug Application (NDA), and Biologic License Application (BLA) submissions in the US.

Dr. Wei will talk about "Current FDA Policy and Opportunities for the Chinese Pharmaceutical Industry" at the International Workshop on Mass Spectrometry and New Drug Development in Hangzhou, China on 8-10 May. In his presentation Dr. Wei will discuss regulatory policies that would help Chinese generic suppliers and the opportunities for botanical drug products in the US market.

At the Second Asian Pacific Regional Meeting of the International Society for The Study of Xenobiotics, held in Shanghai, China on 11-13 May, Dr. Wei will speak on the "Current US FDA Recommendations on Drug Interaction Studies and Challenges to the Pharmaceutical Industry." In this presentation he will reveal the challenges to the pharmaceutical industry -- the requirement of the knowledge level of drug metabolism and drug interactions, optimal design of in vitro and in vivo studies, and integrated analyses to assess the risk/benefit ratio of new drugs for potential harmful drug interactions.

Dr. Wei joined Medpace in November 2007 with extensive experience in the clinical trial regulatory aspects of early phase studies. He came to Medpace from the FDA where he served as a Senior Reviewer in the Office of Clinical Pharmacology and was also heavily involved in reviewing INDs and NDAs for the Division of Metabolism and Endocrinology Products.
