Platform technologies in the combination product development space are not clearly defined, and there are misconceptions about the appropriate technical and regulatory considerations for leveraging platform drug delivery systems. This session aims to discuss current approaches (e.g., master files) and the unique challenges for utilizing platform drug delivery systems across different product and therapeutic development programs, and some industry case studies on platform strategy implementation. This session will also discuss the implications of FDA’s Platform Technology Designation Program under section 506K of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the potential opportunities for streamlining combination product development.
