ACT China III 2013
In 2013, the first Biomarkers Satellite Workshop was held prior to ACT China III by invitation only. Experts explored what is needed to deploy a nationwide testing of tumors for those molecular abnormalities that are likely to impact patient care. This Satellite Workshop brings together clinical oncologists, biomarker assay experts, and representatives of the CFDA of China, the FDA of the United States and Europe's EMA, to develop a plan for standardized cancer biomarker testing in China – for both clinical trials and for patient care.
Over the course of the 3-day ACT China III Workshop, a global faculty of experts addressed the current issues and challenges in carrying out Phase I, II and III clinical trials through a series of lectures, discussions, and workshops. We believe that the curriculum – covering ethics, preclinical studies, clinical trial design and conduct, statistics and regulatory considerations – will help transform oncology research in China for the benefit of cancer patients in China and around the world.
