Cognitive Safety: Satisfying Regulatory Requirements in a Competitive Landscape, Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Share Article

The potential impact of drugs on cognition is becoming increasingly important to regulators, physicians and patients, yet few drug developers have robust cognitive assessment protocols. Find out how computerized delivery of objective and sensitive assessments can enhance the clinical development process in this free webinar.

Regulators, physicians and patients are all concerned by the potential impact of new drugs on cognition, as any drug that crosses the blood-brain barrier (BBB) can have detrimental effects.

Regulators, physicians and patients are all concerned by the potential impact of new drugs on cognition, as any drug that crosses the blood-brain barrier (BBB) can have detrimental effects.

Common disease states, environmental toxins, certain medications and the aging process itself can all compromise the integrity of the BBB. Accordingly, both central nervous system (CNS) and non-CNS therapeutics (e.g. for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, pain) can present significant challenges for cognitive safety in their target patient populations.

Consequently, recent regulatory guidance recognises the critical importance of monitoring cognitive function throughout the drug development process in order to adequately assess the safety and risk profile of new compounds, and make appropriate label claims.

Join Kenton Zavitz, PhD, Director of Clinical Affairs at Cambridge Cognition in a live webinar on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 at 11am EDT (4pm BST/UK) to learn how the computerized delivery of objective and sensitive cognitive assessments can enhance the clinical development process. These assessments facilitate early decision-making, profile safety and tolerability and satisfy current regulatory requirements in an increasingly challenging and competitive pharmaceutical landscape.

This webinar is suitable for biopharmaceutical researchers and CRO professionals who are working in:

  • Drug development
  • Medical affairs
  • Clinical operations
  • Clinical trial management
  • Clinical outcomes
  • Pharmacovigilance
