First Asia-Pacific Educational Workshop Non-Biological Complex Drugs 2013

8 October 2013, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

In 2013, GaBI organized the First Asia-Pacific Educational Workshop on Non-Biological Complex Drugs on 8 October 2013 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health Malaysia.

The First Asia-Pacific Educational Workshop on Non-Biological Complex Drugs (NBCDs) is an interactive workshop for regulators, academics, and medical specialists (gynaecologists/nephrologists who are key opinion leaders) from Asia covering Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan,  Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. The workshop was attended by 25 persons including speakers coming from Belgium, France, Portugal, South Korea, Switzerland and USA.

The educational workshop intends to raise awareness to drug regulators and practising physicians on the efficacy, safety and quality nature of follow-on NBCDs. Representatives from regulatory authorities, academia and medical specialists joined together in this educational workshop to foster open discussions on the issues surrounding best practice in the regulatory requirements on and use and monitoring of follow-on NBCDs, as well as interchangeability and substitution of these medicines.

A meeting report of this workshop has been published in GaBI Journal.
