  4. Advisory Committee: focus on safety An Advisory Committee meeting is normally part of the review process of a NCE dossier to obtain registration in US Nowadays for almost every dossier an Advisory Committee is organized due to the increased focus on safety

  5. The consequence of submission a dossier for a new drug application in US may be to be invited by FDA for an Advisory Committee meeting This is excellent news: your drug reached the final review stage. One hurdle to go!

  6. Advisory Committee The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to assist in its mission to protect and promote the public health, uses 49 committees and panels to obtain independent expert advice on scientific, technical, and policy matters Advisorycommittees provide FDA with independent opinions and recommendations from outside experts on applications to market new drugs, and on FDA policies.  The marketing applications include data to show the safety and effectiveness of human drugs. The outside experts receive summary information about the applications and copies of  FDA's review of the application documents. Based on this information, advisory committees may recommend approval or disapproval of a drug's marketing application.  FDA generally follows an advisory committee's recommendation, but is not bound to do so. 

  7. AC members • Recognized expertstechnically qualified experts in their field and have experience interpreting complex data. Candidates must be able to analyze detailed scientific data and understand its public health significance • Consumera consumer representative must be able to analyze scientific data, understand research design, discuss benefits and risks, and evaluate the safety and efficacy of products under review. It is also essential that the representative have an affiliation with and/or active participation in consumer or community-based organizations • Industry industry representatives act on behalf of regulated industry at committee meetings.
