FDA-Johns Hopkins University CERSI Co-sponsored Workshop
November 18, 2016
Goals and Objectives:
FDA is entrusted to ensure all medications entering the U.S. market are safe and effective, including generic drugs. Generic drugs account for 88% of prescriptions in the United States. In light of significant contributions of generic drugs to public health,it is important that FDA develop a range of tools to monitor marketed generic drugs to ensure they have the same safety and efficacy profiles as their Reference Listed Drug (RLD).
- Discussed current progress on generic drug surveillance method development, generic substitution study outcomes, and surveys about generic drugs
- Built confidence in generic drugs by demonstrating FDA’s commitment to monitoring generic drugs in the postmarket setting and presenting evidence to confirm equivalency
- Provided timely communication of the results of postmarket research related to generic drugs
- Identified future research needs in postmarket surveillance of generic drugs.
