Brainstorming Pharmacovigilance


LifeSciHub Member and incredible early development pharmacovigilance expert Dr. Peg Fletcher is launching an exciting discussion of the new FDA Draft Guidance on IND Safety Reporting called “Brainstorming Pharmacovigilance”. From now until the Guidance gets finalized, supposedly Dec 2021 but that is entirely at FDA’s pleasure, she is hosting a discussion on trendy collaboration mobile app, Clubhouse. For anyone with an interest in Drug Safety, this is an informal training type activity. Have an opinion on the Guidance? Raise your hand to come onto the “stage” and join the discussion! Calls are Sept 30, Oct 28 and Dec 2 from 9-10 am PT, more info HERE


In June 2021 FDA published an important Draft Guidance, Sponsor Responsibilities – Safety Reporting Requirements and Safety Assessment for IND and Bioavailability/Bioequivalence Studies:


This is a significant step towards defining new expectations FDA has for industry, and clarifying some existing expectations. Sponsors need to be prepared and incorporate appropriate actions into strategic plans for 2022 and beyond.
MedAssessment specializes in Clinical Safety and Pharmacovigilance in early development, so is in a unique position to explore this Draft Guidance and invite other industry thought leaders into this important discussion.

Join Us

We invite you to join us in a monthly thought leadership discussion on Clubhouse, as this Guidance moves towards finalization. Issues we will explore and discuss:
  • What do sponsors need to do differently as a result of this Draft Guidance, and in what timeframe?
  • Is there a greater impact on small sponsors than large, if so, in what ways?
  • What other departments, outside of Pharmacovigilance, will be impacted by this Guidance?
  • What should people outside of PV expect to see from PV or be required to do as a result of this Guidance?
  • What is the anticipated timeframe for Guidance finalization, and what implications?
  • How is CRO oversight impacted by this new guidance?
  • History of this Guidance- how did we get to this point?
  • What is the impact of this Guidance on ex-US PV activities?
  • What is the requirement for epidemiology studies?
  • How should sponsors handle the aggregate data
  • Addressing clinical vs. statistical significance in early development/small sample sizes
  • And more!

Please register for details. Looking forward to seeing you there!
