Drug Safety 2018

SMi Group11 - 12 June 2018, London, UK.
SMi Group are delighted to announce their 5th Drug Safety conference. For drugs anywhere, it's the safety in patients which is a huge issue, constantly under surveillance, irrespective of where the drug is in its pipeline.

The Global Pharmaceutical Market currently has a market value of $1057 billion. If a drug is found to be unsafe, causing serious side effects, it can have a huge knock on effect on revenue, causing huge losses to pharmaceutical companies manufacturing the drug.

Drug Safety 2018 aims to discuss the latest findings and current thinking on pharmacovigilance. Importantly, it will address the newest regulatory updates and interpretations of them, including the impact of the vital and much awaited Clinical Trial Regulations.
