January 10, 2017, The Pink Sheet

Wade Ackerman participated at the Biotech Showcase and is quoted by The Pink Sheet in an article regarding the increased use of real-world evidence by FDA following the passage of the 21st Century Cures Act. According to Ackerman, FDA will be running a pilot program to evaluate the potential of real-world evidence to support supplemental indications and satisfy post-approval safety requirements, which creates a great opportunity depending on a company's product areas, particularly when it comes to unmet needs and drugs for rare diseases. "There is a lot of gray in this area," Ackerman adds, but FDA appears eager "to find different sponsors to work with to really move this forward."
