How real-world research can streamline post-marketing studies in oncology

The complexity of post-marketing requirements (PMRs) and commitments (PMCs) in oncology is growing as many drugs are approved using an expedited program. This puts increased strain on an already stretched clinical research ecosystem, with most common approaches to satisfy PMR/PMCs resulting in inefficient use of valuable research resources and delays in meeting regulator deadlines. Real-world research approaches are well-suited to support or fulfill several categories of PMR/PMCs, bridging the gap between care and research and help advance post-marketing approval research.

In this webinar, experts from the Reagan-Udall Foundation for the FDA, Flatiron Health, and Johnson & Johnson will:
  • Highlight the value of post-marketing studies and key frameworks for efficient and impactful evidence generation
  • Present an overview of PMR/PMCs in oncology and opportunities for real-world evidence generation approaches
  • Share examples of more pragmatic approaches to PMR/PMCs
