Updates in regulatory guidelines to blood pressure monitoring in clinical trials webinar

April 27, 2022

As regulatory bodies increase demands on drug manufacturers to study pressor effects of medications, it’s important to understand ABPM monitoring as a safety measure for chronic drug intake. But monitoring blood pressure effects in clinical trials can be challenging not only to the patient but to the sponsor as well.

Join our panel of cardiologists at an upcoming webinar, “Updates in Regulatory Guidelines to Blood Pressure Monitoring in Clinical Trials”, on April 27th at 11am EST, where you can gain insights on the new draft guidance, and how to reduce data variability and increase patient compliance in blood pressure monitoring. The discussion will be held by experts Robert Kleiman, MD, Vice President, Cardiology and Chief Medical Officer, Todd Rudo, MD, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Cardiac Safety, Jeff Heilbraun, MS, Medical and Scientific Affairs, and moderated by Borje Darpo, MD, PhD, Chief Scientific Advisor of Cardiac Safety.
