1 The ESFRI context. Clinical Trials as Instruments supporting Evidence-based Medical Practice. Dr Rafael de Andres Medina, Instituto de Salud Carlos III s DC Day 3, Wednesday, Embassy of France to the United States of America

2 An overview of the context Washington, DC June RDAM Clinical Trials as Instruments Supporting Evidence-based Medical Practice

3  Should provide relevant scientific services.  Promote continuous innovation.  Business Plan.  Sustainability ensured by self committed member states.  Predictable Governnance.  Science is scientists´ driven.  Fair access (no self service).  External advisory Board - helicopter view.  Financing and administration is member state driven.  Used to have each own legal personnality.  If ERIC, awarded by the European Commission, VTA exempt. Washington, DC June 2012 RDAM ] Biological and Medical Sciences [BMS] Research Infrastructures [RI]  ESFRI - SWGs assess the implementation and performance 3

6  Investment in independent clinical trials brings major added value for European R&D, health care systems, patients and citizens. Washington, DC June 2012  Policy makers´s and public understanding and effective support. Need for independent clinical trials. Need for multinational collaboration. 6 RDAM

7 Washington, DC June 2012 It applies not only for medicinal products, but also for medical devices. Other non-pharmacological interventions, e.g. rehabilitative procedures and surgical techniques, require comparative clinical trials too.  e.g. Relevant in Multi-morbidity / poly-pathology of ageing populations that will require therapeutic combinations.  The goal of evidence-based medicine. 7 RDAM

8 Washington, DC June 2012  Basic sciences, particularly the new –omics methods, are leading to an important change in the nomenclature of diseases. What was considered a single disease is now dissected into various strata.  Prevention and predictive medicine. 8 RDAM Relevat for distinct diagnostic and prognostic features.

9  Need for independent clinical trials. Independent evaluation of health interventions is required to support health authorities, develop health care policies and define clinical guidelines for healthcare professionals. “what is the best treatment option for this patient / disease ?” rather than “is this particular product effective and safe?” Highly positive return on investment for society.  Decrease in the burden of disease,  Optimized health care strategies,  Cost containment in health care systems.

10  Need for multinational collaboration. Rapid assessment of the effects of treatments.  Large and diverse populations.  Wider applicability of study results.  More successful adoption in national health care systems.  Reduce inequalities in health care.  Promotes evidence-based medical practice. Access to larger patient populations and to clinical expertise.  To study of stratified and personnalised treatment strategies.  To study on rare diseases / conditions.  Access to best appropriate medical centres.

Washington, DC June 2012  Room for more regulatory collaboration too. 10 RDAM

11 We need a common vision and a shared will. Washington, DC June RDAM Many thanks for your attention !!!
