Peter George, chief executive of clinical trial services firm Clinigen Group PLC (LON:CLIN) says the company has “made a really big effort to extend our global footprint” in 2016, and now has a “complete global reach”.
As part of this strategy, the company has teamed up with Swiss group Basilea to start a managed access programme throughout Europe, allowing clinicians’ access to innovative new medicine isavuconazole, used for invasive fungal infections.
Through the programme, the treatment will be available in European countries where it has been approved but is not yet commercially available.
It’s the second programme announced since April, and George says: “We are the market leader in managed access programmes by a long way.”
“We are the global market leader in clinical trial services and drug supply so to really consolidate that position we need to extend our global footprint,” he adds
