Mikko Neimi, ITC member, will lead the panel Clarification of the ITC
Whitepaper and its Uses in Drug Development and Evaluating the Forthcoming
Guidelines. This interactive session will examine the advent of guidelines on
transporters, drug-drug interactions and what is required for approval. The
session will be the chance for delegates to speak directly to the experts
from the regulatory field, ITC and industry to get a full perspective on what
