The need to respond to COVID-19 has revealed the importance of emergency use pathways (EUPs). We compare characteristics of EUPs, identify regulatory best practices and consider how these can be generalized to address unmet medical needs.
Learning Objective : Discuss similarities and differences across emergency use pathways (EUPs); Identify regulatory best practices that can be learned from these EUPs; Describe how these best practices can be generalized to an effective and efficient regulatory process.
