This presentation will begin by giving an overview of Pharmacogenomics and how it is used in drug development. It will then identify the agencies that regulate Pharmacogenomics data, and explain what the regulations are. It will then go into detail of the four key challenges for Pharmacogenomics in a regulated industry and offer suggestions for overcoming those challenges to get approval from the FDA and other regulatory agencies.

Submission of Pharmacogenomics data as part of a drug or biologic submission, impacts the approval of the submitted product. Complying with FDA requirements on the subject will help with approval of the submitted product. In addition, regulations are coming into place, for the re-imbursement of the genomic tests.

This presentation will describe the agency expectations, describe how to correctly submit Pharmacogenomics data for faster approval by the agency, and what to expect from the regulatory agencies in the near future.
