Jeffries, a securities and investment bank, will host its 2012 Global Healthcare Conference in London next week. The two-day conference will feature presentations by public and private companies from the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical technology, and healthcare services sectors. Institutional investors, private equity/venture capital investors, and leading company executives will focus on near and long-term investment opportunities, and discuss market trends.

GlaxoSmithKline will support the new policy of BMJ to only publish papers that include a commitment to make the patient level data available on request. The commitment applies to all clinical trials of drugs and devices, whether industry funded or not. GSK currently posts results from all of its clinical trials, whether positive or negative, on its website. Earlier this month, the company announced plans to further increase transparency by enabling researchers to access the detailed data behind the results of its trials.
