Following hard on the heels of yesterday’s note about the 14 June 2018 Duke-Margolis workshop on development of non-traditional products, we now have a notice regarding a 21-22 Aug FDA workshop on that same topic!
The meeting will be on FDA’s White Oak Campus from 8.30a-4.30p (21 Aug) and 8.30a-noon (22 Aug). From the notice: “The purpose of the public workshop is to discuss the general development considerations of non-traditional therapies, including pre-clinical development, early clinical studies, and phase 3 clinical trial designs to evaluate safety and efficacy.”
This is exciting to see and will be a good way to build on the conversations that began last week. Hopefully, this is a next step towards a draft guidance on this topic from FDA.
All best wishes, –jr
