6th Annual SMi Conference on COPD 2014: Novel Therapeutics and Management

  • Conference Call
  • SMi is proud to to present it’s 6th annual con­fer­ence on COPD tak­ing place on Octo­ber 20 – 21, 2014 in Lon­don, United King­dom at the Hol­i­day Inn Regents Park.

    This year’s con­fer­ence will fol­low and expand on last year’s event and will pro­vide the audi­ence with the lat­est updates and devel­opem­nts in the COPD indus­try both from phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­nies and acad­e­mia alike.

    Accord­ing to the World Health Organ­i­sa­tion (WHO), COPD is set to become the third lead­ing cause of death world­wide by 2030. There is there­fore an imper­a­tive need for all stake­hold­ers to come together in order to tackle this dis­ease. With the mar­ket for COPD grow­ing year on year, new drug/​compound devel­op­ment, inno­va­tion and man­age­ment strate­gies are required to com­bat this dis­ease. This con­fer­ence will there­fore bring togther major indus­try stake­hold­ers within COPD to dis­cuss, eval­u­ate and review the lat­est devel­op­ment in the market.

    This year’s agenda will start with an overview of COPD while address­ing the reg­u­la­tory aspects and look­ing at mar­ket access. The focus will then be on man­ag­ing exac­er­ba­tion and comor­bidi­ties, enur­ing a suc­cess­ful clin­i­cal trial design and chal­lenges in drug devel­op­ment. New ses­sions will be added, namely patient care, anx­i­ety and depres­sion in COPD, COPD and phe­no­typ­ing and tele­health.

    Hear the story from the other side: Jim & Mary Nel­son have kindly accepted to share their story and bat­tle with COPD. Don’t miss the opp­por­tu­nity to gain more insight from them!
