Summary

Safety biomarkers offer potential benefits throughout the drug lifecycle. These range from the identification of drug candidates most likely to be tolerated in humans, through to predictive identification of patients most likely to benefit from, or not be harmed by, a treatment.

Whether you are involved in R&D, product strategy, or working directly in a drug safety related role, this webinar will provide useful insights on key learnings to date as well as exploring what the future may hold.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • The utility of safety biomarkers throughout the drug development process
  • The regulatory framework for biomarker qualification 
  • Insight into how to identify biomarker information from the literature 
  • The role of biomarkers in post-marketing pharmacovigilance practices 

This is the second in a two-part series on the topic “Pharmacovigilance and Safety Biomarkers”. You can download slides from the first part here
