Program Topic:

Interactions between Medical and Regulatory Affairs are a vital part to the success of a pharmaceutical company and their products. The Medical Affairs division is typically most active following approval but can be involved in publication planning, pharmacovigilance, clinical trial design, investigator sponsored research, and observational studies in support of a product and subsequent submissions. This review will highlight the major functions of medical affairs, pharmacovigilance, and how phase IV research has shaped how the influenza vaccine is used in clinical practice.

Program Summary:

This program will focus on the structure and core responsibilities of medical affairs in support of a product pre- and post-approval. The talk will provide updates on:

  • The Medical Affairs Perspective of a Product’s Lifecycle

  • Responsibilities of Medical Affairs · Influenza and Prevention

  • Current Influenza Vaccines and their Clinical Importance

  • FDA Label vs Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) Guidelines

  • The Phase IV Landscape and Pharmacovigilance
