(King of Prussia, PA; April 10, 2013) – Drug-device combination products present promising new treatment options, and attendees at Partnerships in Clinical Trials will have the opportunity to hear one of the industry’s leading experts on the subject. D. Lee Spurgin Jr., Ph.D., senior vice president and general manager of medical device and diagnostic development for Theorem Clinical Research, will be a panelist for a discussion on “Bridging the Gap Between Drugs and Devices: Differences, Takeaways and Lessons Learned."
“We have made drug-device combination trials a focal point of our services,” Spurgin said. “These are complex and demanding studies, and overcoming the unique regulatory and study management challenges have taught us much that will be of value for future projects.”
Theorem has been performing drug-device combination trials since the 1990s and was one of the first CROs managing combination device programs for the development of drug-eluting cardiovascular stents.
“Bridging the Gap Between Drugs and Devices” will be presented at 11:30 a.m., Wednesday, April 24, as part of the medical device trial optimization track.
Visitors to the Theorem booth at Partnerships in Clinical Trials will have the opportunity to register to win an adaptive study design consultation with prominent regulatory expert Brian Bollwage. Bollwage, vice president of global regulatory affairs at Theorem Clinical Research, has managed the submission and associated FDA liaison activities for more than 150 INDs and 25 successful NDAs or BLAs.
Partnerships in Clinical Trials will be held April 21-24 in Orlando, Fla. Theorem Clinical Research will be in Booth #533 and will have a professional caricature artist on hand providing individual portraits for guests.
