Return to all articles Join the FDA Public Workshop on Inhaled Therapies for Bronchiectasis Posted on June 06, 2018 | 3 Likes The Food and Drug Administration is holding a public workshop entitled “Development of Inhaled Antibacterial Drugs for Cystic Fibrosis and Non-Cystic Fibrosis Bronchiectasis” on Wednesday, June 27th from 8:30pm to 4:30pm ET. The purpose of the public workshop is to discuss the clinical trial design challenges and future considerations for inhaled antibacterial products to treat cystic fibrosis (CF) and non-CF bronchiectasis. Why tune in? Currently, there are no treatments that the FDA has approved specifically for bronchiectasis. This workshop will help to provide a better pathway forward to developing new treatments for CF and non-CF bronchiectasis patients, including a discussion about what outcomes are the best to measure, how long trails should be, and how resistance issues should be handled. Make your voice heard! Did you know that the FDA also considers information provided by patients when making decisions about how new devices and treatments are developed and approved? Are you a patient with Non-Cystic Fibrosis Bronchiectasis? You can register to speak at this public hearing and provide the patient perspective on your experiences with the disease, how symptoms have impacted your daily life, and what outcomes matter most to you. You are the expert, and speakers at the workshop and staff at the FDA are seeking your help and guidance in future clinical trial designs and inhaled antibacterial products. To sign up to speak or attend the public workshop, you can register here. Unable to make it in person to the workshop?
