Early Preparation, Now More Than Ever, is Key to Successful FDA Device Panel Meetings

Sponsors need to understand the changes in FDA’s Draft Guidance for Medical Devices Advisory Committees, and its implications, to better prepare for product approval. The April 2nd issue of The Gray Sheet featured a guest column from 3D Communications’ Amy Tezel, PhD and Chris Miller, MS. The article discusses how Sponsors can anticipate likely panel issues well before the PMA submission, and proactively engage with FDA, early and consistently throughout the development program. The column is an adaptation from this White Paper.
