CDER’s Most Significant Guidance Priorities for 2021 – Webinar Recording/Transcript
New — Get insights into the FDA selection of Patrizia Cavazzoni as the permanent director of the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER).
If you’ve ever wanted a crystal ball into forthcoming guidance and 2021 priorities from the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER), this presentation was made for you. While no proprietary information will be revealed, this timely event will share the next best thing: insights into the agency’s priorities and key areas to expect changes in its regulatory approach.
Anticipate that new guidance will almost certainly reflect important takeaways gleaned from the response to the COVID-19 pandemic in the areas of drug development, real-world evidence and digital health… as will this webinar.
Two lawyers in Ropes & Gray’s Life Sciences Regulatory and Compliance practice — Kellie Combs, a Partner, and Senior Associate Sarah Blankstein — will disclose the latest changes in these areas and in biosimilars/biologics and generics and exclusivity.
Ms. Combs and Ms. Blankstein will provide up-to-the-minute information you can put to use on CDER’s new draft or final guidances as well as the associated implications. And they’ll identify areas of contention or ambiguity CDER will likely address.
- Regulatory framework for biosimilars and possible changes on the horizon with planned FDA guidance addressing labeling, promotion, interchangeability and exclusivity
- Drug exclusivity framework and possible changes on the horizon with planned FDA guidance addressing 180-day exclusivity, pediatric exclusivity and three-year exclusivity
- Current state of real-world evidence in drug development, key open questions and planned FDA guidance addressing regulatory considerations with the use of real-world data to support FDA decision-making for drugs and biologics
- Emerging topics related to drug development and anticipated FDA guidance addressing decentralized clinical trials, substantial evidence and breakthrough therapy designation
- Drug-related developments in the digital health space, including open regulatory questions and planned FDA guidance addressing use of digital health technologies in clinical trial and prescription drug-use related software
If you’ve ever wanted the inside track into CDER’s priorities, this presentation is for you.
