EMA PRESS RELEASE: REGULATORS ADVICE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
EMA has issued a press release https://lnkd.in/ddzupY5 referring to a recent article in Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics https://lnkd.in/ec2Nj5t. The conclusions in the article are that early dialogue and frequent interactions between medicine developers, regulators, HTAs and patients can play a key role in enabling accelerated access of patients to highly innovative therapies that address unmet medical needs. The chair of EMA’s committee for advanced therapies (CAT), Martina Schussler-Lenz, the chair of EMA’s human medicines committee (CHMP), Harald Enzmann, and the head of EMA’s scientific advice office, Spiros Vamvakas describe these interactions through a recent specific example. RRL is experienced in helping companies with the interactions for ATMPs in EU and can navigate companies through the processes.
