Pharma IQ's Drug Recalls Industry Outline

LONDON, August 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Pharma IQ has just produced the Drug Recalls Industry Outline, where it analyses the challenges and implications of the late stage development failures. Pharma IQ had a quick look back over the last few years to see a timeline of drug failures and recalls at the late stages of development.

'Some of the key time saving strategies and information sources to make these decisions are trial design approaches, imaging techniques, biomarkers, strategic outsourcing and patient recruitment' says Nicola Ambler, Senior Conference Director, Pharma IQ, who is directing the upcoming Innovation in Phase 1 Clinical Development in Milan this September.

The outline analyses the drug withdrawals in the latter stages. In August 2012, Pfizer and J&J announced they were going to stop the development of the Alzheimer's drug, Bapineuzumab.  In March 2012 AstraZeneca and Targacept announced that their partnered depression drug - TC-5214 - failed at Phase III. The last two of four late-stage studies failed to meet their primary endpoints, eliminating plans for a comeback after the first two Phase III studies also ended in failure. In March 2011 Sanofi-Aventis' lung cancer drug aflibercept failed to meet its primary endpoint in a phase III trial.
