Early Automation of Data Mining at the FDA using Oracle Health Sciences Empirica Signal and Study

Since the early 1990s, the FDA has used data mining (the practice of examining large databases to generate new information) to gain a better understanding of adverse signals within clinical trial safety data. The agency has also advocated the use of data mining by the pharmaceutical industry when conducting clinical trials. Recently, the FDA has begun adding more sophisticated methods to its data mining activities and has applied these methods to other product-safety-related databases.

In an effort to define its data mining activities, the FDA has issued a white paper, Data Mining at FDA (Nov 2015). It provides an overview of its past and present data mining methods, the advantages/challenges of data mining and future directions for data mining at the FDA.

Dr. Sameer Thapar, Director, Global Pharmacovigilance (Oracle Health Sciences Consulting), and Assistant Professor, Drug Safety and Pharmacovigilance (Rutgers University), has studied this paper and offered highlights in a new Oracle Brief.

Top 5 Technologies Set to Transform Pharmacovigilance

The effectiveness of pharmacovigilance (PV) in Asia has been steadily increasing over recent decades thanks to the growing prevalence of e-clinical and e-health solutions. However now, in the second decade of the 21st century, we are seeing the pace of technological development shift from incremental improvements, to becoming truly transformative, offering entirely new ways of conducting pharmacovigilance. Yet these new technologies present a variety of new challenges that must be embraced rather than resisted, if their transformative benefits are to be realised. With this in mind, we take a look at the top 5 technologies that are set to transform PV in Asia.

Pharmacovigilance in the Age of the Specialty Pharmacy

To protect patient safety in the dispensing and utilization of specialized medications, a compromise needs to be put in place between the manufacturer and the specialty pharmacy concerning the need to perform timely pharmacovigilance reporting. This article by 2018 Pharmacovigilance speaker Sameer Thapar, Assistant Professor, Drug Safety & Pharmacovigilance at Rutgers University explores best practices for confronting this issue.

2017 Cell and Gene Therapy Heatmap - Europe The Road To Commercialisation

Over the last 12 months, the cell and gene therapy manufacturing sphere has matured vastly with more companies advancing to commercial products, especially with allogenic therapies. Now that the theory behind the therapy is catching up with the technology, the two can come together to progress towards producing commercial products. Last year Pharma IQ examined the UK with our Cell and Gene Manufacturing hotspot map. This year we broaden our focus to scan the cell and gene manufacturing activity that is occurring across Europe regarding the road to commercialised therapies.

Life Sciences Manufacturing and Quality: The New Path to Performance

It is no secret that Life Science manufacturers have substantial compliance challenges. Regulatory burdens are getting more intense, regularly changing, and growing in complexity. This is most keenly felt by those that are delivering products in multiple markets.

Successful manufacturers will plot a journey from conformance to performance by merging the objectives, cultures, processes, and technologies between quality and manufacturing.

This new research by LNS explores survey results of over 1200 life science leaders, provides guidance regarding maturity, objectives, and the connection between “IT/OT” and quality, and prescribes a new path for performance. The report also illustrates the correlation between targeted best practices and improved performance.
