Combination Products 2016: Current, Evolving, and Future Pathways

October 24: Short Course (PM)*
October 25-26: Conference
Short Course: Digital Health Technologies for Combination Products and Beyond: Development and Regulation 

*Short Courses require registration and are an additional fee

The increasing use of and interest in innovative combination products – products combining a drug, device, and/or biologic – is raising significant challenges both for regulators and the industries they regulate. To bring these promising new therapies to market, innovators must often overcome challenges resulting from differences in policies, development processes, and review pathways. Combination Products: Current, Evolving, and Future Pathways examines policy and regulation of combination products and their impact on the life cycle of these products. The conference will also examine recent organizational developments and review process improvements at FDA that are aimed at addressing the unique regulatory needs of combination products. Possible new paradigms for developing drugs and devices together will be explored, and the evolving potential of convergence across FDA’s centers, as piloted by the Oncology Center of Excellence, will be discussed as a model for innovation and how it may relate to combination product regulation.
