What CDER Can and Can’t Do: An Inside Look from an Agency Official

CDER, the FDA’s drug-approval arm, pays attention to patient and caregiver input … and so should you.

Starting in the ‘90s and strengthened by the 2012 FDASIA law, CDER has been making concerted efforts to take patient views into account. FDAnews has asked an insider, Dr. Sadhna Khatri, to show you how that process works … and how it affects your new-product approvals.

Dr. Khatri shows you what CDER has done, what it wishes to do, and what law and regulation prevent it from doing. Over a fast-paced hour and a half, she’ll examine:

  • The patient voice: What CDER does to help patients get heard on drug approval, safety and efficacy issues
  • Speedier review: What CDER can do to speed approvals
  • What CDER can’t do: Limitations placed by law and regulation
  • FDASIA: How the 2012 law expands and strengthens agency ability to safeguard public health …
  • Real-world examples: Engagement strategies that work for others
  • How to deal with CDER: Face-to-face, electronically and via postal mail
  • How to request a meeting with CDER
  • And MUCH more!

Patients experience diseases and therapies differently. Each has his/her own perspective on treatments and diagnostic procedures. For successful new-drug applications, it’s essential to understand the patient perspective. An agency outreach specialist shows you what to focus on.
