Asthma and COPD 2014

-

SMi proudly present the 10th annual Asthma and COPD conference taking place in Central London on Wednesday 2nd and Thursday 3rd April, 2014.

Due to the world's increasingly aging population and rising pollution levels, the global market for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) drugs is set to reach $47bn in 2017.
There is a growing demand for the next generation of inhaled combination products and novel therapeutics. This conference will enable delegates to gain valuable insight into the latest ground-breaking advances in the respiratory drug market. It will focus on the challenges and strategies to enhance patient outcomes, providing extensive knowledge from the key leading industry and academic experts.

The agenda will showcase the treatment for exacerbations, clinical trial design and strategies for method enhancement, biomarkers and the utilization of devices for Asthma and COPD. Key focus will be put on the anti-inflammatory developments in addition to the efficacy and toxicological issues relating to combination products.

Insight will be given on the current regulatory requirements and enable delegates to stay up to date with the guidelines.
