What to Watch: A Primer on PDUFA

05.08.12 | By Kate Connors

If you've read some of my previous posts about PDUFA but found yourself resorting to Google to figure out what in the heck I'm talking about, you'll want to take a few minutes to watch a video that we made for We Work For Health, so that biopharmaceutical company employees have a chance to learn about it, too.

After all, as the video says, it's important legislation!

So, if you want to learn more, go ahead and watch it. Or if you already know a lot about PDUFA, but your family is wondering what you're talking about over the dinner table, share it with them.

And in the comments below - or on our Facebook page - or in the YouTube comments section, let us know what PDUFA means to you. For some patients, it may mean that they get a first-in-class treatment sooner than they otherwise might have without those important FDA resources. For some company researchers, it might mean seeing a medicine they worked on get the FDA approval to reach patients. For FDA reviewers, perhaps it's a way to get the tools that help them do the best job they can.

At the end of the day, it's about the patients...as well it should be.
