Issues in the Design and Conduct of Clinical Trials for Antibacterial Drug Development; Public Workshop, August 2-3, 2010

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public workshop regarding scientific issues in the design and conduct of clinical trials for antibacterial drug development. The public workshop is intended to provide information for and gain perspectives from health care providers, researchers, academia, industry, and regulators on various aspects of design and conduct of clinical trials for antibacterial drugs. The workshop will focus on the design and conduct of non-inferiority (NI) clinical trials, which are often used in the evaluation of the safety and efficacy of a new antibacterial drug. The input from this public workshop will help in developing topics for further discussion.
