Drug Development/R&D

In response to the R&D productivity crisis affecting the pharmaceutical industry, "big pharma" is seeking to source therapeutics from small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). In this seminar, Dr Michael Hopkins of the University of Sussex will discuss his research tracking the SMEs that have played a part in projects reaching late stage clinical trials.

Now available from the OHE website, this report provides a clear explanation of the complex nature of innovation in medicines. A fully revised and expanded version of the 2005 edition of The Many Faces of Innovation, it updates the review of the literature on the economics of innovation, traces important innovation that has occurred since the earlier report, adds new case studies, and updates the discussion of competition in pharmaceutical R&D.

OHE’s Adrian Towse is co-author on the recent report by the ISPOR Good Research Practices Task Force on assessing comparative effectiveness using prospective observational studies.

Just published are the results of an OHE Lunchtime Seminar given by Prof Riccaboni, from the University of Trento. In this publication, he explores whether R&D productivity in the pharmaceutical industry has declined and, if so, why.

Every year, OHE sponsors a lecture by an eminent economist or clinician that addresses an important current issue.

OHE's Dr Jorge Mestre-Ferrandiz is a visiting lecturer in the Department of Economics at City University London. As part of his 2012 activities, he recently gave a comprehensive lecture on the economics of the market for medicines in the UK.

OHE's outside activities in early 2012 focused on spillovers, HTA decision making, and measuring health outcomes.
