Pharmacogenomic Data Submissions — Companion Guidance August 2007


Not for implementation. Contains non-binding recommendations.

Docket Number:
Issued by:
Guidance Issuing Office
Center for Drug Evaluation and Research

This guidance is intended to be used as a companion to the guidance Pharmacogenomic Data Submissions (March 2005). It reflects experience gained since the issuance of that guidance with voluntary genomic data submissions as well as with review by the FDA of numerous protocols and data submitted under investigational new drug (IND) applications, new drug applications (NDAs), and biologics license applications (BLAs). The recommendations are intended to facilitate scientific progress in the field of pharmacogenomics and to facilitate the use of pharmacogenomic data in drug development. The FDA believes that the recommendations made in this companion guidance, together with the recommendations in the March 2005 guidance, will benefit sponsors considering the submission of either voluntary genomic data submissions or marketing submissions containing genomics data. As technology changes and more experience is gained, these recommendations may be updated.
