Central and Eastern Europe region for execution of bio-similar and bio-equivalent studies.

Publish date: 2014-06-25

The Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) region has recently become a rapidly developing sector for life sciences. During this year BioForum meeting two representatives of KCR, European Clinical Research Organization (CRO) have presented a panel session „Advantages of execution of biosimilar and bioequivalent studies in the CEE region”. The discussion covered themes related to conducting studies and clinical trials for biosimilars and bioequivalence in Europe.

Central and Eastern Europe is very promising for the development of life science sector, especially medicine and biotechnology. Majority of newest trends concentrate on innovative medicinal substances which are Biosimilars and Bioequivalent Drugs. During 13th edition of BioForum Anna Baran, Chief Medical Officer, KCR and Mike Jagielski, CEO, KCR have presented lectures concerning advantages and challenges associated with the execution of biosimilars and clinical endpoint bioequivalence studies.

According to PhD Anna Baran, there are two major steps for optimization path for development of biosimilars and bioequivalent drugs in Central and Eastern Europe. The first one is interpretation and understanding the difference in definitions for a biosimilar and a generic. The second step is the evolution of European Union regulation. Both in Poland and in CEE the biosimilar pathway is well‑defined as it follows the approach represented by EU authorities. Therefore, Poland does not have its own approach in biosimilars and bioequivalent drugs studies. Moreover, the more effort of United States in studies is undertaken, the higher impact of US on our own studies is observed. The solution for overcoming the two-side study impact is to meet the approval of both Food and Drug Association (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMA) together with designing a scientific program that will satisfy all the stakeholders. In addition, to retarget to both markets, reference methods and products are also important.

 “Our challenge at CRO company is that biosimilar development is closer to innovative development than to generic development” says Anna Baran. At the end of her speech PhD Baran draw the attention of the audience to two conclusions over optimization of biosimilars and bioequivalent drugs pathway:

  • CEE region is and still will remain supportive for biosimilars and bioequivalent drugs researches. The only effort that is needed is to bring all the stakeholders to the parallel level of awareness
  • biosimilars and bioequivalent drugs studies are still a challenge not only for the industry but also for the standard classification of research.

 

The second part of the session was hosted by Mike Jagielski, CEO, KCR and considered cost effective execution of bio-similar and bio-equivalent clinical trials applying new technologies and processes. Biosimilars are well-known and easy products, however, they must follow the Food and Drug Association (FDA) guidelines and quality standards. According to KCR CEO, “the quality matters and the cost matters. The execution of quality very much affects the result of a study”. But apart from the quality, the way of production of medical products also affects researches. “Technology plays the larger role to achieve efficiency”, says Mike Jagielski. The efficiency of production process, as well as the division of clinical trial drivers, determine the time and costs. The current drivers of KCR company are CRO/service fees and investigator fees respectively.

It is estimated statistically that CRO and services fees are about 50-60% of all cost drivers which include monitoring, drug supply and central lab. The rest share are investigator payments and out patients clinical. A tendency which might be noticed is that the more pressure is laid on CRO fees while almost no pressure on investigators, therefore, an overall optimization and solutions should be incorporated. The best solution seem to be technology advances which reduce partial costs. CEO Mike Jagielski has presented ways for cost reduction which involves technology advances. The very basic one is creation of patient recruitment portals which will be commercially accessible and will facilitate direct patient engagement. Additionally, designing of specific sensors should also improve the cost, in particular the ones dealing with travelling. The sensors could be in a form of an application available on smart-phones or normal phones. Such solutions will be beneficial both for the investigators and patients as it simplify the communication between patients and a clinical trial centre.

I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Mohammed, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Mohammed's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me.

I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there.
