    2. 2. FOCUSED. TRUSTED. GLOBAL.o Key objectives and criticaldifferences of Late Phase researcho Early planning: maximizingproduct potentialo Selecting a strategic partner:benefits and considerations
    3. 3. FOCUSED. TRUSTED. GLOBAL.Example definitionsLate Phase Studieso Any study conducted on a marketed, fully approvedproducto Studies capturing clinical data and addressing real worldissues of safety, effectiveness, health outcomes,reimbursement and risk management
    4. 4. FOCUSED. TRUSTED. GLOBAL.Late Phase Research Objectiveso Long-term real-world safety data and riskmanagement FDA/EMA mandated Adverse claims New endpoints, health outcomes, effectivenesso Maximize market penetration New comparators and dosage forms Label extensiono Provide access to yet unregistered drugs EAP/Named Patient/Compassionate use studieso Health economics and Patient Reported Outcomes Reimbursement
    5. 5. FOCUSED. TRUSTED. GLOBAL.Interventional/Non-interventionalLate Phase Study Typeso Randomized Clinical Trialso Observational epidemiologic studieso Expanded Access Programso Post-Authorization Safety/Efficacy studieso Health Economics and Patient-Reported Outcomeso Product and disease registries
    6. 6. FOCUSED. TRUSTED. GLOBAL.Regulatory Frameworko GCP and GPPo ISPE Guidelines for GPPo CIOMS International Ethical Guidelines for EpidemiologicalStudieso Eudralex Volume 9A: Guidelines on Pharmacovigilance forMedicinal Products for Human Useo GRACE Principleso Country-specific HEOR guidelineso No harmonized legal framework across countries due to alower risk to subjectso High emphasis on scientific credibility and data protection
    7. 7. FOCUSED. TRUSTED. GLOBAL.Phase II/III vs. Late Phaseo Objectiveso Protocol designo Study Populationo Sites outreacho Data collectiono Regulatory documents and submissionso Site agreementso Monitoring
    8. 8. FOCUSED. TRUSTED. GLOBAL.Late Phase Studies/Non-interventionalo Capture real-world data/standard of careo Analyse data from a large number of patientso Less per patient costs than in a clinical trialo Increase disease and/or drug awarenesso Hypotheses generation and academicresearch supporto Create and support stakeholder relationships
