Also, guidance for follow-up of patients administered with gene therapy medicinal products are prepared by both EMA and FDA recently. In this session, DIA invite o the regulators of FDA and EMA and PMDA. They will explain “risk balance on pre-/post- market to treated patients as gene therapy” form point of each health authority’s point of view, including of points on their accelerated review process (BT, RMAT, PRIME, Sakigake).
