Public Workshop on Minimal Residual Disease
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public workshop to provide a forum for discussion of the use of minimal residual disease (MRD) as a biomarker for evaluating new drugs for the treatment of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). The meeting is cosponsored with the American Society of Clinical Oncology and will be the first in a series of workshops intended to bring together scientific and advocacy communities and the pharmaceutical and in vitro diagnostic device industries to help develop processes and procedures to qualify MRD as a biomarker of efficacy and/or response to treatment in a group of hematological malignancies.
Date: April 18, 2012 Time: 8:00 am to 4:00pm Location: FDA White Oak Campus
10903 New Hampshire Avenue
