*Times are approximate. Program Topic: Biocompatibility testing of medical devices is undergoing an exciting evolution; transitioning from a process that largely relied on the results of animal testing to one that increasingly involves the use of New Approach Methods (NAMs), like in vitro methods and computational models, for the biological safety assessment of devices. In this presentation, we will discuss the current regulatory environment regarding the acceptance of NAMs as part of a biological evaluation strategy for medical devices and we will explore how the FDA Medical Device Development Tool (MDDT) Program can be used as a means to qualify NAMs for regulatory use. Ron will provide practical advice for developers of innovative new assays or software who may want to qualify their tools for regulatory use through the MDDT program and will also share some thoughts on how the increased regulatory acceptance of NAMs may shape the future of biocompatibility testing. Speaker Biography: Ron Brown is a toxicologist with 35 years of experience in regulatory toxicology and risk assessment. He recently retired from the US FDA after 25 years of service and currently directs a small company, Risk Science Consortium, LLC, that provides consultation and training in toxicological risk assessment and computational toxicology. At the FDA, Ron was the senior toxicologist responsible for developing and reviewing toxicological risk assessments of extractable and leachable (E&L) compounds from medical devices. Prior to his position at the US FDA, Ron served as a Senior Associate at the ILSI Risk Science Institute. He is founding member and former President of the Medical Device and Combination Products Specialty Section of the Society of Toxicology and former President of the Dose-Response Specialty Section of the Society for Risk Analysis.

March Event: A Window into the Changing Landscape of FDA Drug Effectiveness Standards

Register Here A Window into the Changing Landscape of FDA Drug Effectiveness Standards Program Speaker: Frank Sasinowski Director at Hyman, Phelps & McNamara, P.C. Wednesday, March 17, 2021 FLYER Event Agenda: Date: Wednesday, 17 March 2021 Time*: 6:00 – 6:05 PM Welcome and Announcements 6:05 – 7:05 PM Program Presentation 7:05 – 7:30 PM Q & A

*Times are approximate. Program Topic: Almost 60 years have passed since the requirements for efficacy were first added to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act with the Kefauver-Harris Amendments in 1962. Following that landmark addition to require evidence of efficacy for drug approval and marketing, what constitutes substantial evidence of effectiveness has continually evolved. These changes have been driven by numerous forces such as new statutory revisions, long overdue incorporation of the patient voice in regulatory decision-making, responses to the unique opportunities of drug discovery in the 21st Century as well as the hurdles of rare diseases and the need to quickly manage public health emergencies like Covid. FDA response to these forces comes in cycles, whereby every 20-25 years the Agency revisits and updates the drug effectiveness standards. Frank Sasinowski will draw upon his nearly 40 years of drug development experience to illuminate how the FDA appears to be on the cusp of another major revision. His talk will point to some of this history, examine the current signals of change coming from the FDA, and, most importantly, illuminate these signals by looking to his personal and recent experiences assisting pharmaceutical clients across the full spectrum of diseases and drug modalities. Speaker Biography: Frank J. Sasinowski, M.S., M.P.H., J.D., joined FDA in 1983 as regulatory counsel in the Center for Drugs and Biologics, where he was key to implementing both the 1983 Orphan Drug law and the 1984 Hatch-Waxman law. In 1987, he left the FDA as Deputy Director of health policy in Commissioner’s office and joined Hyman, Phelps & McNamara. Frank was involved in 6 of the most recent 8 drugs FDA approved by way of its accelerated approval process. He has helped secure FDA approval for hundreds of new drugs, including more than 100 new molecular entities, often for serious and rare diseases by assisting sponsors and patient organizations in developing new medicines. Frank is involved in many cell and gene therapies and aided significantly on the first approved systemic gene therapy, Zolgensma. In its March 2012 issue, the Drug Information Journal published Frank’s seminal analysis on therapies for rare disorders: “Quantum of Effectiveness Evidence in FDA’s Approval of Orphan Drugs: Cataloguing FDA’s Flexibility in Regulating Therapies for Persons with Rare Disorders.” Other papers of his on Accelerated Approval and Orphan Drugs are regularly cited by FDA, industry and academia as well. Thanks to his extensive FDA experience, both from within the Agency & from a sponsor’s perspective, as well as his passionate advocacy for integrating the voice of the patient in developing medicines, Frank possesses a nuanced & deep understanding of the drug regulatory process. Since 2014, Frank has been an Adjunct Professor of Neurology at the University Of Rochester School Of Medicine. His work has been widely recognized by industry and political leaders. For example, Frank was asked by both political parties to testify at the May 2014 inaugural congressional hearing on the 21st Century Cures law. In August 2018 Frank was appointed to the Board of Directors for the Alliance for Regenerative Medicine (ARM) Foundation for Cell and Gene Medicine. In May 2013, the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) awarded Frank its first ever Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2000, Frank was elected to NORD’s Board of Directors, where he served as Chair and as Vice Chair & was on its Board until 2016. In 2017 Frank joined the Board of the Everylife Foundation for Rare Diseases where he currently is its Vice Chair. In October 2012, President Obama recognized Frank’s contributions to the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) report, “Propelling Innovation in Drug Discovery, Development and Evaluation.” Frank is a founding Board member of the IndoUSrare patient organization, representing those in India and in the US with rare conditions. Frank has also served on the Board of Directors of the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and has served on the board of several biotechnology companies.
