March 17, 2010: Pharmaceutical Science and Clinical Pharmacology Advisory Committee Meeting Announcement

CDERMarch 17, 2010
7:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Atlanta Marriott Marquis
265 Peachtree Center Avenue
Atlanta, Georgia 30303
Telephone: (404) 521-0000


On March 17, 2010, the Committee will discuss and provide comments on the following topics: (1) General scientific issues related to the application of pharmacogenomics in the early stages of drug development. Pharmacogenomics examines the genetic differences that influence a person’s responses, both beneficial and harmful, to certain drugs; (2) a new patient-centric clinical pharmacology approach to drug safety; (3) the design and analysis of clinical pharmacology studies focusing on how the renal function changes in the way the body absorbs, distributes, metabolizes and excretes a drug in patients with kidney impairment; (4) scientific considerations and recent developments in transporter-mediated drug interactions. These interactions are between two or more drugs that either inhibit or enhance the roles of specialized proteins known as “transporters” and, in turn, the interactions can affect a drug’s safety and/or efficacy.
