ASCPT Appreciates Our Volunteers and Endorses a Position Statement on COVID-19 Research
This month, ASCPT expresses gratitude for the efforts of our members in the 2021 Annual Meeting proposal review process and recognizes the importance of core clinical pharmacology principles at all stages of research in COVID-19.
COVID-19 Position Statement Endorsed by ASCPT Board of Directors
The ASCPT Board of Directors has endorsed the COVID-19 position statement from The Australasian Society of Clinical and Experimental Pharmacologists and Toxicologists (ASCEPT) and the British Pharmacological Society (BPS) that was recently published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology
While the scientific community has made remarkable efforts to identify potential pharmacological treatments for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) with global efforts to expedite clinical trials, some in the research community are concerned that many studies have not been of high quality to generate clinically meaningful data to enable effective translation to clinical practice. The Australasian Society of Clinical and Experimental Pharmacologists and Toxicologists (ASCEPT) and the British Pharmacological Society (BPS) address these concerns and outline core clinical pharmacology principles at all stages of research that should be met in a COVID-19 position statement in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology
