ClinStar to Host Live Webinar on Including Russia & Eastern Europe for Successful Clinical Trials

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ClinStar, LLC, an established clinical research organization providing clinical research services in the emerging markets of Russia and Eastern Europe to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry, announced today that they will host a live webinar on including Russia & Eastern Europe for successful clinical trials.

“The traditional drug development model is evolving as more and more biopharmaceutical organizations look to emerging markets to reduce their clinical research study timelines and clinical development costs through more effective patient recruitment,” says ClinStar CEO David Passov. “For many, the enticement of conducting clinical research studies in emerging markets is over shadowed by the fear of prolonged study start-up times, unknown regulation and logistics requirements and political uncertainty.”

During his live webinar presentation scheduled for Tuesday, January 24, 2012 at 11:00 am ET, Mr. Passov will explore how to effectively navigate these challenges in Russia and parts of Eastern Europe and will demonstrate how these countries are not only effective in rescue trials but should be an integral part of a biopharmaceutical company’s global clinical trial plans.

Mr. Passov will:

  • Discuss characteristics and classification of “Emerging” vs “Emerged” for Eastern European geographies
  • Consider why Russia and parts of Eastern Europe are optimal for conducting clinical research studies compared to other emerging countries
  • Discuss how to successfully navigate cultural differences and regulatory changes in the region in order to achieve expedited approval timelines and patient recruitment
  • Present case studies outlining the operational and opportunity cost savings of global clinical trials in these fast enrolling geographies
