About

The Global Cancer Clinical Research, Drug Development and Therapeutic Accessibility Workshop is a collaborative effort between the Duke University Center for Applied Therapeutics and the National Cancer Institute’s Center for Global Health. It will be held at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in Bethesda, Maryland, U.S.A. April 30-May 1, 2018. The oncology landscape is evolving rapidly, as scientific advances bring treatment options to an expanded number of patients. Many anticancer drug development investigators, as well as the pharmaceutical industry, are struggling to adapt and embrace this evolution, in particular, the regulatory systems, diagnostic and treatment infrastructure, and financing mechanisms that are required to meet the needs of populations. The availability of new cancer treatments varies widely around the world. Individual countries differ in the availability of new cancer treatments. The targeted immunotherapies are available in most developed countries, but none of the emerging markets have yet registered these treatments. Even when available through the regulatory review process, not all cancer drugs are accessible to patients due to lack of reimbursement under public insurance programs. This workshop will focus on the clinical development, regulatory approval and access/reimbursement to anticancer drug activity that occurs internationally. It will deal with the complex issues specific to international oncology drug development, focusing on molecular subtypes of cancer, rare cancers and pediatric cancer.
