Regulation of Cell and Gene Therapies: An Overview

This rapidly growing area raises a number of unique and complex legal questions specific to regenerative medicines. Our presentation will provide an overview of the regulatory framework for regenerative medicine products, key definitions and concepts, expedited programs for RMATs, FDA enforcement, and factors HCT/P manufacturers should consider when deciding whether to submit investigational new drug applications or marketing applications.

This roundtable will cover:

– The basics of regenerative medicine regulation

– The end of FDA’s enforcement discretion period (2017-2021) and what that means for manufacturers

– Regulation of “section 361” products and “section 351” products

– Regenerative Medicine Advanced Therapy (“RMAT”) designation and other expedited programs

– Regulatory exclusivities, including reference product and orphan drug exclusivity
