The demarcation between medicinal products and devices is becoming ever more important and, with the convergence of emerging novel technologies, the number of drug/device combination products and medical devices incorporating a medicinal substance is increasing. At the same time, cell therapy and tissue-engineered products are being combined with both pharmaceuticals and medical devices. This seminar will address the European and FDA regulatory requirements, help you define the regulatory route for your product and offer practical guidance on Notified Body expectations, clinical trial considerations and post- market surveillance of borderline products. Participants will have an invaluable opportunity to discuss the complex issues involved with key regulatory experts in this field.
PRE-SEMINAR READING It is recommended that you have read the Medical Device Directive, Essential Requirements Annex 1 and 3 and the relevant sections on combination products in the new Medical Device Regulation prior to attending this seminar.
