Choose the Right Drug Approval Pathway: Is a 505(b)(2) the Way to Go?
Section 505(b)(2) was written to help sponsors like you.
For example new and costly trials that duplicate studies already performed on a reference drug may not be necessary. So, your company could get a break and only have to provide a limited number of clinical studies (or smaller ones) — or none at all — cutting your costs and shortening your development time.
And, a 505(b)(2) product could receive fast-track approval, especially for products with limited changes from existing or approved drugs. Ideal candidates include:
- New indications
- Changes in dosage form, strength, formulation, dosing regimen or route of administration
- New combination products
- New active ingredients
- Prodrug of an existing drug
Of course, the devil is in the details — and that's why this FDAnews webinar CD and transcript is led by an acknowledged expert. Kurt Karst is a Director with Hyman, Phelps & McNamara, and a widely respected legal authority and blogger on 505(b)(2) issues. He will teach you:
