Event Title
Model Informed Drug Development Approaches for Immunogenicity Assessments
June 9, 2021

June 9, 2021

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER), in collaboration with the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER), are announcing the following public workshop entitled “Model Informed Drug Development Approaches for Immunogenicity Assessments.”


The purpose of this public workshop is to discuss best practices and future directions of quantitative methods for predicting immunogenicity of biologic products. This public workshop is also being conducted to satisfy one of FDA's performance goals included in the sixth reauthorization of the Prescription Drug User Fee Amendments (PDUFA VI), part of the FDA Reauthorization Act of 2017 (FDARA), to hold a series of workshops related to model-informed drug development (MIDD).


Under FDARA, and in accordance with section I, part J of the PDUFA VI Performance Goals, FDA agreed to convene a series of workshops to identify best practices for MIDD (https://www.fda.gov/media/99140/download, see page 27).  Each workshop focuses on current and emerging scientific approaches, including methodological limitations.  The workshop announced in this notice fulfills FDA’s performance commitment under PDUFA VI, specifically for modeling immunogenicity and correlates of protection for evaluating biological products, including vaccines and blood products.


Topics for discussion include the following:

  1. Current in silico methodologies used to assess drug immunogenicity;
  2. Available data resources and data needs for MIDD approaches to evaluate immunogenicity at various stages of drug development;
  3. Possible applications and limitations of MIDD approaches for desired immunogenicity of vaccine/allergenic products; and
  4. Insight into the possible future applications of MIDD and good modeling practices
