FDA Looking To Patient Advocates To Answer Benefit-Risk Questions

This article was originally published in RPM Report

Executive Summary

FDA’s clinical review teams are starting to approve novel drugs and biologics using a new structured benefit-risk framework developed under PDUFA V. Those assessments ask reviewers to think more broadly about the disease and how a new treatment might fit into the current treatment model. But many reviewers don’t have that information. And that, FDA says, is where patient advocates come in.
