The Industry’s Only Scientific & Regulatory-Focused Event For Uncovering Novel Bioequivalence Approaches To Ensure A Safer, Regulatory-Compliant & Faster Time-To-Market On Future Branded & Generic Drug Products
In order for generic drugs to be approved, the FDA requires bioequivalence studies to make sure the generic drug, when administered will have the same effect as the branded drug. However, ensuring the safety of a drug can be a very complex and costly process with a high failure rate. A challenge that often creates a bottleneck between the scientific community and regulatory agencies.
What can be done to bridge the gap between the scientific community and the regulatory agencies in safely bringing a new drug to market? The must-attend Bioequivalence: Intersection between Science and Regulatory Conference will share and address specific case studies and take-home examples on how we can clarify, simplify and unify the bioequivalence testing process, and ensure a faster time to market on future drug products.
Over the course of 2 days, you will hear from a number of the drug development industry’s leading bioequivalence innovators who will share multiple unique, take-home strategies, examples and best practices from scientific, practical and regulatory standpoints.
This must-attend event is co-located with Curtis & Coulter’s Oral Drug Formulation Innovations Summit. Conveniently hosted in San Diego, attendees have access to both events in the same location.
