Europe Benefits From 50 Years of Pharma Legislation, but It Needs to Evolve If We Are to Remain Competitive
19 March 2015 by

Imagine a Europe in which individual countries move at varying paces towards granting approvals for medicines and picture the discrepancy in the resulting provision of care across the continent.

19 March 2015 (European Voice)

The problem is obvious: a 20th-century procedure for getting new medicines to patients is struggling to cope with 21st-century medicines. Its critics say that it is often too slow, doesn’t always ask the right questions, and doesn’t know how to pay for innovations. For the advocates of change, the consequences are clear.
