Late Phase Development: Maximizing the Value of Real World Data


There is increasing recognition that data obtained under the tightly controlled settings of clinical trials do not necessarily reflect actual experience in clinical practice. At the same time, late phase development data have been recognized as important alternative information sources that reflect an uncontrolled real-world setting, complementing and expanding on clinical trial findings. Drivers for the growingimportance of late phase development data include the increasingly stringent

post-marketing regulatory environment, the move towards proactive pharmacovigilance, and the rise of comparative effectiveness research. The series of papers in this report will provide focused discussion on the challenges and benefits of late phase studies. The topics will include the major factors that must be addressed to ensure a successful late phase development strategy for novel medical interventions. The value propositions, the regulatory hurdles, and operational challenges will also be discussed with clear examples of best practices for optimization.
