Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training will help you understand what a combination product is, highlight some of the changes in how the FDA views combination products, the approval steps for combination products and proposed regulations for these types of products.

Why Should You Attend:

It’s no longer just the “drug-eluting stent” that the FDA sees as a combination product, but also the drug being delivered in a pre-loaded syringe, or by a programmable pump. Drug-device interactions need to be specifically tested and the specific compatibility/stability test result information listed in the label.

FDA has increased their level of scrutiny and is adding approval steps for these “combination” products even when the drug and device/s are made by competing companies. What if company a (device) does not want to work with company b (drug) and yet their products are used together (i.e. in “combination”)? Drug and device companies need to be prepared for the added work.

Who is responsible for the testing and why would both companies need to do all the same testing? What additional risk is associated with a combination product? Reporting of adverse events is another complex area. Is it the drug or device that needs to be reported? These are all new questions which need to be addressed since two non-collaborating entities may be involved in bringing a combination product to market.

The FDA published proposed rules for combination products, 21 CFR Part 4, to codify the current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) requirements and Post Market Safety Reporting for combination products and . They are intended to simplify and clarify what submissions are required; however, navigating the current regulatory landscape for combination products is complex and confusing.
