  • Tuesday, February 12, 2019

Given the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) increased scrutiny of clinical and long-term safety, the agency is calling for more public Advisory Committee and Panel hearings each year. Good data alone are no longer enough to win approval. In today’s environment, it is critical to prepare a clear, credible and engaging presentation. You must ensure that your team is ready for the most difficult questions in order to sustain credibility and achieve a positive committee recommendation. Most companies are ill-equipped to prepare for this daunting meeting. With so much at risk in a single presentation, all stakeholders must mobilize and have a clear strategy when approaching FDA for market approval. This presentation will provide you with proven steps that will optimize your success before an FDA Advisory Committee.
