A crucial document that is part of a dialogue between the sponsor and the regulatory agency during the filing and subsequent review of a New Drug Application is the Draft Package Insert provided in Module 1. The labeling section of the application provides the prescribing physician with key information on the product, starting with indication statement, dosage, adverse effects, potential warnings and contraindications, pharmacology and drug-drug interactions, and supportive evidence of efficacy. Sections of the package insert also provide useful information for any specific counseling information to be provided to the patient. The Package Insert is a living document which is revised periodically post-approval based on new emerging data such as safety information, special populations such as pediatric or geriatric use or a new indication. While it is not possible to cover all aspects of the draft package insert development in one seminar, FDA guidance specific to key sections of the label and precedents for oncology products will be reviewed in this webinar, encouraging discussion from participants on their recent experience.
