PharmaTimes -
September 2018

Though we mainly keep our eye on UK pharma at PharmaTimes, there’s no doubt that the industry here will have to become increasingly interconnected with other countries to face challenges ahead – and especially so in the ever-complicated world of clinical trials.

Of course, in the modern world that’s easier said than done – so we’ve asked four clinical research experts to give their views on what the biggest challenges will be for global clinical trials in the near future and how pharma can overcome them (p30).

Sticking with the global theme, we look at the potential changes to drug pricing in the US on p22 – while on p38 former ABPI president Lisa Anson shares her opinions on what the UK industry can learn from the US and why she’s given up big pharma to head a biotech.

Elsewhere we have articles on recent competition law cases (p24), new approaches to T-cell therapy (p26) and challenges in regenerative medicine (p36).
