Since 2007, the DIA Asia Meeting has provided a platform for industry, regulators, and academics to solve research challenges in Asia. Countries sharing their knowledge of regulatory application packages through this platform, including inclusion of data from global clinical trials and local Asian populations, have driven successful regulatory applications throughout Asia.
DIA Asia Meeting 2022 will be presented on October 8 in Tokyo on the theme of Digital Transformation. As in every previous DIA Asia Meeting, our program committee consists of colleagues from Japan, South Korea, China, and Singapore.
Participating Asian countries will review recent innovative approaches to clinical trial conduct and other advancements in drug development, including the digital transformation of clinical operations, data management and analytics, and pharmacovigilance. Regulatory innovation in product labelling and safety information management, as well as future directions for global and Asian clinical trials, will also be discussed.
Session 1: Dr. Theresa Mullins of US FDA and PMDA Chairperson Dr. Yasuhiro Fujiwara will be joined by senior officials from Singapore HSA and China’s health authority to share information and discuss how each country (including the US and European Union) can advance Digital Transformation in the future.
Session 2: Speakers will discuss the practical aspects of digital transformation and innovation in clinical and academic research operations, including challenges encountered with data sourcing from medical records, and how decentralized operations can provide a comprehensive, interoperable solution for clinical trial conduct and oversight.
Session 3: Speakers will share information on pharmacovigilance initiatives in Asia, including collecting post-market safety data and implementing digital product information, and how a planned international product information standard could be used in the EU, Japan, and US to provide patient-centric benefits now and in the future.
Integration between sessions 2 and 3 will allow overall discussion of product information across the entire spectrum of development through post-marketing.
We are all hopeful that the pandemic will end soon. We are confident that the lessons we learned from the pandemic, combined with the acceleration of on going Digital Transformation, will enhance the efficiency of clinical and academic research and regulatory operations. We sincerely hope that DIA Asia Meeting 2022 provides the discussion forum that makes a positive impact on society by making new drugs available earlier, and more accessible, to Asian and global patients.
October 8 is also the day before our 19th DIA Japan Annual Meeting 2022. We hope this gives you the opportunity to participate in both meetings.
