TitleRegulatory workshop on clinical trials designs in neuromyelitis optica (NMO) and spectrum disorders
Date10/10/2014 - 10/10/2014
LocationEuropean Medicines Agency, London, UK
SummaryThis workshop brings together patient representatives, healthcare professionals, regulators, Pharma and ethicists to discuss trial designs in NMO, a rare neurological disorder. For evidence of efficacy, in NMO, the choice of comparator is problematic. The severity/lack of reversibility of NMO relapses, indicate that placebo comparators are difficult but evidence for current treatments appears lacking. Different regulatory agencies have different views on comparators in NMO attack prevention. For a rare debilitating disease with unmet medical need, a wider debate is being held to facilitate drug development for the benefit of NMO patients. See 'Documents’ tab for agenda and 'Multimedia' tab for video of the workshop.
