Leverages real-world data, patient insights and a systematic process to design, operationalize and measure the effectiveness of diversity action plans in clinical trials

DURHAM, N.C., May 30, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fortrea (Nasdaq: FTRE) (the “Company”), a leading global contract research organization (CRO), today announced its comprehensive and integrated solution to improve the diversity and inclusion (D&I) of participants in clinical trials. Fortrea’s D&I solution is designed to expand patient access to participate in clinical trials and address the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements, under The Food and Drug Omnibus Reform Act, to increase enrollment of underrepresented populations in clinical trials.

Fortrea’s comprehensive process integrates five components of diversity action planning and execution:

  • Real-world evidence advisors research relevant real-world data sets to inform diversity planning.
  • Regulatory, development and clinical operational experts design the Diversity Action Plan, validate with patient groups and negotiate with regulators.
  • Operational teams access multiple data platforms, Fortrea’s Site Advisory Board and technology-enabled solutions to implement the Diversity Action Plan as an integral part of Fortrea’s clinical trial execution.
  • Monitoring and reporting are enabled by Fortrea’s exclusive Diversity and Inclusion Study Insights Dashboard, providing actionable data and visualizations for ongoing study management.
  • Experienced report technical writers compile data and prepare reports for regulatory submission, with ongoing regulatory support provided as part of the D&I solution.

“Clinical research that reflects a representative population provides better insight into how a potential treatment will work in a real-world setting,” said John Doyle, DrPH, president Fortrea Consulting. “Recent regulatory requirements codify progress over the last few years in biopharma’s approach to improving the inclusion of diverse populations in their development programs. Fortrea’s solution brings deep, real-world data expertise to design D&I plans that are effective and realistic, along with more than 30 years of experience across more than 20 therapeutic areas in trial execution. We also bring a steadfast commitment to D&I, not just in clinical trials but across our entire company as we pursue our purpose of bringing life-changing treatments to patients faster.”

Fortrea’s D&I solution incorporates a series of proprietary tools, including epidemiological and feasibility assessments that leverage an exclusive combination of large data sets. The solution also integrates inputs from patient groups to create insights into protocol tolerance and study conduct support requirements in different patient populations across multiple therapy areas and geographies. These insights inform global and local patient recruitment and retention plans to reach under-represented patient populations and address barriers to participation in clinical trials.

“Ensuring the inclusion of diverse patient populations in clinical trials must go beyond a plan, it takes insight and action,” said Mark Morais, chief operating officer, Fortrea. “Because of our comprehensive Voice of Patient program and our collaboration with diverse investigator sites and site networks, we have a deep understanding of what it takes to be successful in reaching populations that have traditionally been under-represented in clinical trials. At Fortrea, we are informed by real-world data, enabled by innovative technologies, and driven by our passion to deliver new therapies for all patients.”

World No Tobacco Day: Addressing the “Misperception Epidemic”

World Vapers’ Alliance in Geneva

GENEVA, May 30, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — On this World No Tobacco Day, the World Vapers Alliance (WVA) is shedding light on the rampant misperception epidemic around tobacco harm reduction. As revealed by Ipsos research for the think tank, We are Innovation, a staggering 74% of smokers worldwide mistakenly believe that vaping is as harmful or more harmful than smoking. This widespread misunderstanding is the result of misinformation and costs lives, as millions of smokers waver on making the switch to a scientifically proven, 95% less harmful alternative product.

“World No Tobacco Day is a crucial opportunity to combat misinformation and promote effective harm reduction strategies,” said Michael Landl, Director of the World Vapers Alliance. “Instead of blindly fighting against safer nicotine alternatives, the WHO should be championing them as the key to a smoke-free future.”

Sweden has set a remarkable precedent by embracing harm reduction. The country is on the verge of becoming smoke-free, not by banning safer nicotine products but by endorsing them. Sweden’s success should serve as a model for global tobacco harm reduction strategies. The World Health Organization (WHO) should take note and adapt its current approach, which is failing.

Landl added, The WHO is missing the mark by targeting vaping and other safer nicotine products instead of focusing on the real threat – smoking. By fighting those products, they are keeping smokers from making the switch. This is not just misguided, it’s dangerous.”

The misperception that vaping is equally harmful as smoking is a public health crisis in itself. Evidence from numerous studies, including comprehensive reviews by Public Health England, confirms that vaping is significantly less harmful than smoking.

“We are facing a misperception epidemic and the WHO is part of the problem by spreading further misconceptions,” Landl stated. Accurate information is the cornerstone of effective public health policy. We must ensure that smokers have access to the truth about safer alternatives. Facts over lies!”

The World Vapers Alliance is calling on health authorities and the WHO to reevaluate their stance on harm reduction and to prioritize facts over fear. It is essential to support policies that promote safer alternatives to smoking rather than vilifying them.

In conjunction with these efforts, the WVA organized a protest in front of the WHO headquarters on World Vape Day, May 30th.

World Vapers' Alliance in Geneva

This demonstration aimed to compel the WHO to finally listen to consumers and acknowledge the scientific evidence in support of vaping, nicotine pouches and similar products as valid harm-reduction tools. It is high time the World Health Organization acknowledge reality, embrace science and help move the world toward a healthier future. Turns out, it’s as easy as giving people more choices, not less.

Federal Budget Gives Canada’s Health Minister The Power To Limit Contraception Access

OTTAWA, May 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The federal budget, which is set to be passed before the end of June, includes changes to the Food & Drugs Act that gives the Health Minister the power (Section 326) to override regulatory approval for over-the-counter drugs, natural health products, and medical devices.

OTTAWA, May 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The federal budget, which is set to be passed before the end of June, includes changes to the Food & Drugs Act that gives the Health Minister the power (Section 326) to override regulatory approval for over-the-counter drugs, natural health products, and medical devices. The Consumer Choice Center’s Toronto based David Clement explained why this new power sets Canada down a dangerous path.

“Giving the Health Minister the power to override Health Canada approvals on OTC drugs, NHPs, and medical devices creates a scenario that is ripe for ministerial abuse, with a health minister sidestepping Health Canada to regulate from a position of bias, or in response to bad headlines,” said Clement.

“This power is even more problematic given the products and drugs that are covered by the change. As written, a future Health Minister could use this power to restrict access to OTC drugs like Plan B, or contraception like IUDs, and do so entirely at their discretion,” said Clement.

“If the Liberals are truly committed to ensuring that women have access to certain forms of contraception, they wouldn’t be giving a future Health Minister the authority and ability to override Health Canada approvals. By giving future Health Ministers this power they are setting the table for restrictions,” said Clement.

Global Liver Institute Convenes Fruitful Meeting on the Sidelines of WHA77

Geneva, Switzerland, May 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Global Liver Institute (GLI) convened esteemed global leaders for an event on the sidelines of the 77th World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland, entitled “Together for Better Liver Health: Amplifying Best Practices Globally,” in partnership with the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL). Now in its second year, this exclusive gathering has quickly attracted health leaders from around the world to become a driving force for liver health policy initiatives.

To complement the event, GLI released Best Practices in Liver Health Policy: A Liver Health is Public Health Report, which evaluates successes that certain countries have had in liver health policy to give insight and promote effective policies worldwide. The report highlights persistent challenges that patients face globally and thoughtful, thorough policies that address these challenges. Drawing examples from Egypt, India, Ireland, Scotland, and Türkiye, it showcases measures such as utilizing primary care data to screen high-risk populations and integrating fatty liver disease into national programs targeting non-communicable diseases.
The more than 100 types of liver disease- driven by a variety of causes from genetic, to viral, to over-exposure to toxic substances – pose substantial challenges for global communities and the health systems that serve them:

“We are so grateful to work with such an enduring partner, EASL, and the expert panelists featured, to showcase how addressing liver health aligns with achieving major global public health priorities,” shared Donna R. Cryer, JD, CEO of GLI. “We launched the Liver Health is Public Health Initiative in the UK in 2022 hoping to engage and inspire international leaders and health ministers to deploy the diverse and powerful array of public health tools available to them to the tasks of preventing, identifying, and treating the millions at-risk or living with liver diseases and today is a significant milestone.

In a remarkable display of multi-stakeholder partnership and progress built upon the success of the inaugural event, the event demonstrated the expansion and elevation of the collaboration. For a full list of speakers, including key government figures in health as well as the leaders of internationally renowned organizations, please view the program agenda.

“We are happy to co-host this event alongside GLI and look forward to seeing its reverberating global impact,” shared Aleksander Krag, MD, PhD, MBA; Secretary General, EASL. “It is critical that this event happens in Geneva, Switzerland, on the sidelines of the 77th World Health Assembly, while leaders from each member state work together to prepare next year’s health agenda.”
