London, England (PRWEB UK) 15 September 2015
Some of the most internationally prominent scientists, clinicians and industry leaders will gather next month in London to discuss the latest developments in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), when SMi's 7th annual show on the debilitating respiratory illness returns to London this October.
This year’s event will provide a comprehensive overview of current issues and ongoing considerations in COPD relevant to both new and seasoned stakeholders. The two day agenda features over 18 thought provoking presentations from leading pharmaceutical organisations such as Novartis, Verona, Mundipharma, Janssen, Medimmune and Chiesi; an industry spotlight on the relatively unknown condition – ACOS (Asthma COPD Overlap Syndrome); progressive insight into the next generation of inhaled drug delivery; guidance into managing exacerbation's; and strategic direction on conducting effective clinical trials.
In addition to the conference, the COPD event will also run a workshop hosted by Quintiles entitled: Improving probability of success in COPD drug development. Taking place on 21st October, the interactive session will review major topics of development in COPD Drugs. From clinical trial design and setup through to COPD biomarkers and operational issues, the Quintiles team will draw from their extensive experience to offer guidance from lessons learned.
