How Real-World Data Will Change Drug Development

The pharmaceutical industry&#8217s business model is changing from a dichotomous model of one-off licensing with subsequent market entry to a progressive and flexible model of progressive patient access, with adaptive licensing and adaptive market entry. This session will explore how real-world data can support the new paradigm which will enable product launches starting with a limited indication in a limited patient population on the basis of limited clinical trial data, expanding as more clinical results become available from actual clinical practice.
