The co-development of Therapeutics and Companion Diagnostics requires the careful navigation of technical and regulatory milestones, timelines and regulatory hurdles which could at any point hinder or delay the approval of one or both of the products.  The success of the co-development program hinges on the effective management partnership of the therapeutic developing company and the diagnostic developing company. However, there are often practical, tactical and cultural large differences between therapeutics and diagnostics companies which can set the progress astray. This program will cover the key elements and strategies for effective management of Companion Diagnostics.  The program will review:

  • Setting the stage for success: Quality Agreements and Development Agreements
  • Critical to Quality (CTQs) Attributes
  • Regulatory Meeting and regulatory communications
  • Managing Stakeholder Expectations (both ways)
  • Best practices and common mistakes to avoid in CDx Programs

The program will also review some key elements of CDx Partnership including how existing IVDs can be leveraged in Therapeutics Development programs, stop-gates and key requirements in the development of the program.

The program will conclude with a few case studies that exemplify how the recommendations can be implemented.

This event is brought to you by the RAPS Colorado Chapter to encourage knowledge sharing and community development. RAC holders may claim 1.0 RAC recertification credit.
