[WEBINAR] Drug-Device/Diagnostics Combination Products: Understanding the Rapidly Changing Landscape

May 23, 2017


PDUFA, MDUFA and 21st Century Cures all address the issues companies are facing or will face in bringing combination products to market.  It is fair to say that changes of this magnitude have not been seen since 2002, when the Office of Combination Products was established.  Given the criticality of combination products to the innovation pipeline for  many pharm and medical devices companies, it is imperative that companies understand the shifting landscape.  This webinar will examine the Regulatory, Clinical, Supply Chain and other relevant issues that many stakeholders are facing and the anticipated changes resulting from User Fee negotiations and 21st Century Cures implementation. Join us as we discuss: 

  • Relevant portions of the PDUFA, MDUFA and 21st Century Cures related to combination products
  • Strategic considerations for commercial leaders, when planning the timelines and budget for bringing combinations products to market
  • Global insights regarding the alignment between countries and a predictable pathway for combination product registration
  • Lessons learned from past combination product development efforts, clinical evidence strategies, and registrations
