DIA Japan’s Focus in Fall 2018

September 4, 2018

Dr. Akio Uemura, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, previews DIA Japan’s fall event calendar and explains the need to reduce clinical research complexity, and the need to develop both clinical and economic measures of patient outcomes, to enable innovative healthcare product development in Japan. “Clinical trial costs have increased to a much greater level, and that becomes a problem that makes the drug very expensive,” he explains. “There are many efforts being made to streamline those processes and make the cost as accessible as possible.”
