Advances in scientific knowledge and technology are driving growth and innovation for combination products and companion diagnostics, thereby enabling personalized therapies that:
This conference will provide a practical approach to development processes and regulations in these evolving landscapes. This one-day meeting will focus on combination products. DIA is hosting a related one-day meeting on personalized medicines and their companion diagnostics, November 6: DIA Meeting on Personalized Medicines and Companion Diagnostics
Combination products are therapeutic and diagnostic products that combine drugs, devices, and/or biological products. Because combination products involve components that would normally be regulated under different types of regulatory pathways, and frequently by different FDA Centers, they raise challenging policy, regulatory, and review management challenges. Differences in pathways ordinarily associated with each component can raise questions for all aspects of product development and management, including preclinical testing, clinical investigation, marketing applications, manufacturing and quality control, adverse event reporting, promotion and advertising, and post-approval modifications.
This day will focus on:
Pharmaceutical, academic and government senior-level professionals and decision-makers involved in:

Combination Products State of the Union
Combination products increasingly incorporate both new technologies and novel marriages of drugs, biologicals, and medical devices. These products hold great promise, but bringing them to patients can challenge industry and regulators as they try to answer important questions about product safety and effectiveness. Nowhere is this more apparent than with combinations of drugs and biologicals with new delivery systems. This session will explore the challenges in developing combination products with a focus on drug/biological delivery systems, preclinical and clinical combination product data requirements, and human factor testing. FDA thought leaders will provide Agency perspectives, and industry experts will discuss their experiences in navigating these issues.
FDA issued the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) Requirements for combination products to promote clarify which CGMP requirements apply when drugs, devices, and biological products are combined to create combination products. In addition, the rule sets forth a transparent and streamlined regulatory framework for organizations to use when demonstrating compliance with CGMP requirements for “single-entity” and “co-packaged” combination products. In this session, FDA will outline the final rule, discussing the requirement and expectations. Much of the session will be designed to provide an opportunity for audience participants to interact directly with CDER, CDRH, CBER and OCP.
As the market for global drug device combination products is expected to reach $30 billion by 2014, understanding international access challenges and regulatory changes is essential. In particular, changes to the Medical Device Directive in the EU will impact combination product oversight, and globally there are differences in how combination products are viewed by regulators. This session will provide overviews and insight into regulatory requirements and expectations of global markets.
FDA has predicted that it will come out with a final guidance on mobile medical apps by October 1. This session will explore that final guidance, teasing apart exactly what types of apps in the pharmaceutical space will be regulated and which ones will not. To make the session more dynamic, we will explore several pre-prepared case studies that focus squarely on the difficult issues associated with applying that guidance to the pharmaceutical use cases. Three commentators will provocatively discuss the different possible interpretations of the guidance as applied to the case studies, and then we will ask the audience, using an electronic polling system, to vote to put the technology at issue into one of the following four categories: a.) Unregulated mobile app; b.) FDA regulated drug labeling; c.) FDA regulated medical device; or d.) FDA regulated medical device constituent part of a combination product. After seeing the audience poll, the panel will discuss whether they agree with the audience’s assessment.
