Obtain expert input on the use of new methodological approaches in pre- and postmarket risk assessment. Identify opportunities and barriers in advancing a public health approach to balancing risks and benefits of pharmaceuticals for drug regulation and risk management. Tuesday, January 17, 2005 8:15 a.m. Opening Remarks 8:30 a.m. Overview of Pharmacoepidemiology: What Is the Evidence Base? Session 1: Assessing a product’s risk-benefit balance throughout its lifecycle involves the use of a variety of epidemiological resources and methods, including the use of ad hoc data sources, automated data systems, and randomized trials. The choice of specific assessment methods involves a consideration of many factors, including how well it informs decision making intended to optimize a drug’s balance between benefits and risks.

The case studies are intended to focus the discussion on the type of information that would be most useful to decision makers, with the case studies selected to address both the preapproval and the postapproval period. The intent is to model not what is or is not actually done at the FDA and by the industry sponsors, but what could or should be done. The proposed format is that speakers for each case study will briefly present the case study, followed by questions of clarification of fact from the IOM Committee and audience. Following lunch, there will be comments from an invited panel and discussion/questions to be posed by the IOM Committee.

At what point during evidence development should this tool have been brought into play? What would have remained uncertain? How long would it have taken and what effort would it have taken to reduce that uncertainty? How were the risks and benefits identified, evaluated, and weighted? Where were the flaws in this process? What could have/should have been done differently and why? What resources are needed for your approach? How would this approach improve the current risk/benefit evaluation?   Panel:   Judith K.

The Future of Drug Safety: Promoting and Protecting the Health of the Public MEETING FOUR—AGENDA The National Academies Institute of Medicine Committee on the Assessment of the US Drug Safety System AGENDA Thursday, January 19, 2006 OPEN SESSION Keck 100 8:15–8:25 a.m. Welcome and Introductions   Description of Committee’s request to invited speakers   Many recommendations for strengthening FDA’s role in drug safety have been made in the past several years. We have sent today’s speakers three sets of recommendations:   Ganslaw LS. 2005. Drug Safety: New Legal/ Regulatory Approaches. FDLI Update: Food and Drug Law, Regulation, and Education. FDA Task Force on Risk Management. 1999. Managing the Risks from Medical Product Use: Creating a Risk Management Framework. Report to the FDA Commissioner from the Task Force on Risk Management. http://www.fda.gov/oc/tfrm/riskman-agement.pdf. CRS/Thaul. 2005. Drug Safety and Effectiveness: Issues and Action Options After FDA Approval. http://www.law.umaryland.edu/marshall/crsreports/crsdocuments/RL3279703082005.pdf.   Reflecting on these (and other recommendations you find relevant) please comment on the following:   Which of these or other recommendations are the most important to consider and why? Which of these or other recommendations that have been made would you not support and why?
