Register now to discover the five major tenets of biologic-device combination product development you must master:

  • Product development challenges — many of the regulations don't always fit what you are trying to develop
  • Preclinical design considerations — failure to talk to the FDA early can delay your clinical development or cause your data to be rejected
  • Clinical trial design — make sure you have properly tested the components as well as the product as a whole
  • One size does not fit all — flexibility in your product development cycle is crucial
  • Request for designation — if jurisdiction is unclear, you can get it clarified.
