FDA will share CDER’s most recent assessment of clinical trial diversity and discuss efforts to advance diverse participation in clinical trials to include relevant FDA guidance and regulations.

In this era of globalization, meeting various regulatory authorities’ expectations in recruitment of diverse trial population is challenging. The need for faster drug development and shorter recruitment timelines make this important part of drug development even harder. CDER has pooled and analyzed 5-year’s worth of demographic data from NME and original BLA approvals presented in Drug Trials Snapshot 2015-2019. In addition to sharing the observations and trends from trials of over 290,000 participants, the webinar will provide FDAs expectations when it comes to representation in the trials and various initiatives that were developed to help industry, recruitment sites and the public in general achieving these expectations.
