“The acceptance of CDISC standards is firmly embedded throughout the industry now”

As a global CRO specialising in CDISC data solutions, BDLS is proud to be a platinum sponsor at the PhUSE 10th anniversary conference to be held in London next month.

With 10 technical CDISC presentations to be delivered across a range of conference streams, BLDS staff will be sharing our experience, insights and knowledge of the rapidly evolving data standards landscape.

Alongside the presentations, BDLS will be conducting an interactive CDISC SDTM & ADaM workshop on behalf of PhUSE. This will be the third year that BDLS have run workshops at the conference, and pre-conference interest is high.

“The acceptance of CDISC standards is firmly embedded throughout the industry now,” commented Peter Van Reusel, BDLS’ COO, “but the rate of change means that it is a real challenge for everyone to keep up-to-date with the latest developments and releases. BDLS see this as part of our core mission and services to our clients.”

At PhUSE, more than 140 papers and posters will be presented, with BDLS delivering presentations on:

  • “ADaM Conversions: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” Carla Santillan & Jessica Minkue
  • “Creating a Personal View on the Data via Using a Virtual Private Database” Sébastien Roland & Bart Van Win
  • “ADaM Standards: What’s New?” Gavin Winpenny
  • “How the Release of the Therapeutic Area Asthma User Guide Affects an Ongoing Submission” Nick De Donder
  • “Handling non-Standardised Questionnaires” Anne Sophie Bekx
  • “Your Clinical Data Standards Library Ready for Change? Adapting to TA Specific Standards” Lauren Shinaberry
  • “Manage Your SAS Drug Development Environment” Bart Van Win & Sébastien Roland
  • “Small Sample Bayesian Factor Analysis” Dirk Heerwegh
  • “Why Don’t you Define it?” Nick De Donder & Anne-Sophie Bekx
  • “FDA Guidance on Standardised Study Data for Electronic Submissions” Lauren Shinaberry

“PhUSE has become a phenomenal global success that has encouraged co-operation and commitment across the industry. This year’s theme of Data Transparency underlines the forces that will shape the next five years in pharma,” said Van Reusel. “BDLS has been a supporter of PhUSE from its inception, and I’m delighted we are platinum sponsors for the 10th anniversary event, as well as sponsoring the opening evening event.

“BDLS is actively involved CDISC data standards around the world, and we regularly present at conferences and events. The dynamic changes that are taking place in the industry means that companies need to focus on standards and their management. Our CDmation platform is helping both pharma companies and CROs save time and money in dealing with multiple changing data standards. We're excited to be able to share our experiences at this event.”
