Japan Update


The Japan CDISC Coordinating Committee (J3C) held another successful Interchange this June, attended by over 250 people, making it one of the largest Japan Interchanges in CDISC history. CDISC would like to thank the J3C for their incredible support of the Japan Interchange every year, assisting on the Program Committee, working on the site logistics, serving as session chairs, planning meetings, and much, much more. Additionally, we would like to thank the CDISC Japan User Group (CJUG), Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) and Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED) for meeting with us the week of the Japan Interchange, and for their support of CDISC in Japan throughout the year.

Standards Translated to Japanese

The J3C and CDISC are also pleased to announce the availability of SDTM 1.4 and ADaMIG 1.0 in Japanese on a dedicated page on the CDISC website. CDISC is grateful to the Nagoya Medical Center, CDISC Japan User Group (CJUG), and Translational Research Institute (TRI) for providing the translations. These documents were created in compliance with COP-007.
