Mumbai/London, November 9, 2009 - SIRO Clinpharm a global Clinical Research Organization (CRO) with its base in India, US, Europe and Israel in association with leading regulatory experts from Europe, today announced a workshop on regulatory strategy for European market access.

  • How to reduce time to market significantly?

  • How to avoid wasting money on unnecessary development work and trials?
  • The most cost effective way to conduct clinical trials for regulatory submissions in Europe.
  • Focused strategies for New Chemical entities, Biotech/Biologics, Generics/Bio Similars and Herbals.

Speaking about the need for the workshop, Karen James, the lead faculty and the MD of CambReg regulatory said that 'The European market is constantly evolving and a number of recent regulatory changes and those proposed can have a significant impact on Business'. Stressing the need for a focused regulatory strategy early on, she commented 'At whatever stage of development or product lifecycle a company is in, the right regulatory strategy is crucial for success… and to costs and timelines.'

The workshop is relevant for personnel in regulatory services and international business development divisions of companies wishing to register human medicines of any kind including new small molecule or biotech entities, Biologics and Herbals as well as Generics. The workshop would be held on 19th November 2009 at Mumbai and 20th November 2009 in Hyderabad.
