This webinar will provide insight on FDA’s recommendations for the “Indications and Usage” section of labeling as outlined in the draft guidance Indications and Usage Section of Labeling for Human Prescription Drug and Biological Products – Content and Format.

This draft guidance, when finalized, will assist drug and biological product applicants in developing the “Indications and Usage” section of labeling. This will ultimately help health care providers identify appropriate treatment options for their patients.


Webinar participants will hear directly from the FDA on current recommendations for:

  • How to write, organize, and format the information in the “Indications and Usage” section
