FDA IN BRIEF: FDA launches new pilot to advance innovative clinical trial designs as part of agency’s broader program to modernize drug development and promote innovation in drugs targeted to unmet needs

Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced a new pilot program (“Complex Innovative Designs Pilot Meeting Program”) in which drug and biologic companies who participate in the pilot program will have additional opportunities to meet with agency staff to discuss the use of novel complex innovative trial designs (CID) for their clinical development programs. Complex innovative trial designs includes the use of seamless trial designs, modeling and simulations to assess trial operating characteristics, the use of biomarker enriched populations, complex adaptive designs, Bayesian models and other benefit-risk determiniations, and other novel designs. The new program is aimed at helping to solidify the science used to support these novel approaches, and promote their adoption in drug development programs where these trial constructs can advance innovation.
