Conference on Challenges in Design and Conduct of Clinical Trials of Medical Devices

22nd August, 2015 (Saturday)
Venue – Jamia Hamdard, Convention Center, Delhi
Timing – 8:30 am to 5:30 pm


medical-devicesMedical device is a 1 trillion US dollars market all over the world. Though we have essentially segregated the “clinical trial requiring devices from other devices, the clinical trials requiring devices are the major contributors to the economics of the medical devices.

The medical device industry in India has witnessed tremendous growth in recent years and one of the key challenges is evaluation of medical devices by scientific sound clinical trials. Regulatory bodies of different countries have tried separating the medical device related clinical trials activities from the regulation of drugs. However, a lot of evolution is still due. Newer guidelines of Schedule Y  Medical Devices, CDISC & DCASH, and GHTF etc. are indicative of another great diversity upcoming in this area.

There are many questions for which one constantly seeks answers, like:

  • Why is this change required
  • How does clinical research practice of medical devices differ from the one for drugs, cosmetics and neutraceuticals
  • What are the aspects of critical difference between medical device clinical trials and others
  • How should we implement our medical device quality systems
  • What is the role of pharmacovigilance in medical device clinical trials

Currently the clinical research practices in most cases of intend to retrofit medical devices into the practices and methods applicable for the drugs research. Through this conference we intend to bring all stakeholders Viz. Manufacturers, Contract Research Organizations, Academia, Scientific & Medical Fraternity and policy makers together to seek answers to the above raised and many more questions.
