The European Medicines Agency has released a draft guideline on safety and efficacy follow-up and risk management of advanced therapy medicinal products, Revision 1, for public consultation.

The aim of this guideline is to provide the guidance for the Safety and Efficacy (S&E) follow-up and risk management for advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs) according to Article 14(4) of Regulation (EC) No 1394/2007. This regulation requires the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to develop a detailed guideline relating to the post-authorisation follow-up of efficacy and adverse reactions, and risk management for these products.

This is the 1st revision of the original ATMP guideline on safety and efficacy follow-up and risk management; the guideline has been revised to take into consideration the experience gained with the authorisation of these products and to define their risks and their risk minimisations measures. In addition, guidance on methodology in order to design post-authorisation S&E follow-up studies is provided.

The draft guideline is available by clicking here.
