CDER/CBER Perspectives in the Use of Study Data for Regulatory Reviews

Do you ever wonder what pharmacology/toxicology, clinical, or statistical reviewers are looking for during the regulatory review process at the FDA? Seven speakers from CDER (Center for Drug Evaluation and Research) and CBER (Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research) present their perspectives in the use of study data and analytics for drug and biologics reviews. The topics of this presentation include (1) Technical Rejection Criteria (TRC) for study data; (2) the use of standardized SEND study data in nonclinical regulatory review in CDER; (3) the use of standardized study data and analytical tools for clinical safety evaluation in CDER; (4) study data traceability, transformation, mapping, consistency, and challenges for clinical reviews in CDER; and (5) study data considerations from a CBER perspective.
