By David Shotlander and Tiffany Jang. Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies REMS faced significant developments on multiple fronts in as the life science and pharmaceutical industries responded to the global coronavirus pandemic and the impact of long-awaited legislation to expand access to brand samples subject to REMS. As the pandemic took hold in March, the U.
The under-treatment of chronic pain is already a public health issue 1 and, if the FDA is not careful, the situation will become critical. The approximately 3. Four specific adverse outcomes were later identified—abuse, misuse, addiction, and fatal overdose. Sidney Schnoll, MD, PhD, who represents the IWG and was one of many speakers, informed the FDA panel that according to government statistics7 the rate of nonmedical use of prescription pain killers had leveled off between and

Manzo fda. Information from a REMS assessment can be used to understand whether certain REMS requirements or specific tools are effective in mitigating a serious risk. Additionally, assessments of approved REMS may be submitted voluntarily by the applicant at any time.
These FDA reviews are archived in the Agency's electronic archival record system. FDA has received feedback from healthcare providers, healthcare systems, industry members, researchers, professional organizations, and other Federal Agencies, indicating that it would be beneficial to make both the applicant's REMS Assessment Report and FDA's review of this report available in the public domain for a number of purposes. Information on participation in shared system REMS would be provided in aggregate e.
Introduction; B. Background; C. Key Findings; D. Conclusions; and E. Next Steps. Section A. Introduction will include a brief paragraph that includes the reporting time point e. Section B. Section C. Key Findings will include the brief summary of the results of data used to inform each objective. Section D. Section E. Drug X is approved to treat the symptoms of a genetic, progressive, neurodegenerative disorder for which there are limited approved therapies. Drug X is an injectable medication given at a dose of milligrams mg intravenously over 60 minutes weekly for 4 weeks, and monthly thereafter.
A REMS was required at initial approval to mitigate the risk of anaphylaxis, which occurred in clinical trials in approximately 10 percent of patients within 30 minutes of receiving a dose of Drug X. The risk of anaphylaxis occurred with any dose and patients appeared to be at higher risk if they experienced a prior event e.
Objectives of the REMS include:. Goal: To mitigate the risk of negative outcomes associated with Drug X-induced anaphylaxis. Objective 1: Ensuring that prescribers are educated on the risk of anaphylaxis associated with the use of Drug X, that the risk may occur with any dose, and that all patients need be observed for 30 minutes following each dose.
Data evaluated: Number and recipients of REMS letter; successful completion of prescriber knowledge assessment, surveys of prescribers' knowledge. Conclusion: FDA concluded that this objective is being met because the applicant notified the appropriate prescriber population with information about the Drug X REMS and certified prescribers successfully completed the training program and the knowledge assessment prior to enrollment. In addition, prescriber survey respondents demonstrated knowledge of the risks and the safe use conditions necessary for Drug X.
Objective 2: Ensuring that Drug X is dispensed only in certified healthcare settings that have immediate access onsite to equipment, emergency medication, and personnel trained to manage anaphylaxis. Data evaluated: Shipment of Drug X only to certified healthcare settings; surveys of healthcare settings, audits of healthcare settings. Key findings: No shipments of Drug X were sent to non-certified healthcare settings during the reporting period. Audits of 10 percent of certified healthcare settings found that all were in compliance with the requirement to have immediate access onsite to equipment, emergency medication, and personnel trained to manage anaphylaxis after receiving Drug X.
Conclusion: FDA concluded that this objective is being met because Drug X is being dispensed in certified healthcare settings. Objective 3: Ensuring that healthcare settings observe patients for at least 30 minutes following Drug X dosing. Data evaluated: Completed post-injection forms, surveys of healthcare settings, and audits of healthcare settings.
The majority of patients who experienced anaphylaxis, were treated and observed at the healthcare facility and discharged once stable. A small number were transported to a hospital for additional monitoring; outcome for these three patients is outstanding and will be reported in the next assessment report. Conclusion: FDA concluded that this objective is being partially met. Objective 4: Informing patients about the risk of anaphylaxis associated with Drug X and the importance of remaining at the healthcare setting for 30 minutes after each injection.
Key Findings: Patient survey respondents showed high knowledge of the risk of anaphylaxis 92 percent and the need to remain at the facility for 30 minutes after each injection of Drug X 95 percent. FDA conclusion: FDA concluded that while not all objectives are fully met, the overall goals of the program are being met.
Appropriate outreach to likely prescribers was completed via REMS letters and the open rate for email letters is consistent with communications for other REMS. Surveys of a sample of enrolled prescribers showed that they understood the risks of Drug X, the need to monitor following dosing, and how to treat anaphylaxis.
Patients surveyed were also aware of the risk and the need to be observed for 30 minutes following each dose. No Drug X was shipped to facilities that were not enrolled. Audits of facilities were in compliance with the need to have access onsite to equipment, emergency medication, and personnel trained to manage anaphylaxis; however, findings did reveal that 25 percent did not have specific policies and procedures in place to ensure that patients are observed 30 minutes following each injection of Drug X.
Certified healthcare facility personnel surveyed were also aware of the risk and stated that they ensure all patients are observed for 30 minutes following each injection. Facilities reporting patient non-compliance with the minute observation period were warned and will be followed in subsequent assessment reports. Although patients experiencing anaphylaxis were treated appropriately, three did require transport to a hospital and their outcome was not provided in this report.
In the letter the applicant was instructed to ensure that the audited healthcare settings that were out of compliance are fully compliant within 3 months of the date of issuance of the letter and that the outcome for the three patients that were transferred to a hospital must be provided to FDA as soon as possible. The applicant was also encouraged to use probability random sampling and recruit a larger sample of prescribers in subsequent prescriber surveys.
A shared system REMS encompasses multiple prescription drug products and is developed and implemented jointly by two or more applicants. Fain, K. Nachman, and L. When finalized, this guidance will represent the FDA's current thinking on these issues. An individual REMS encompasses one or more prescription drug products and is developed and implemented by one applicant.
The knowledge rate is the proportion of subjects who know the key message out of all subjects; the target knowledge rate for this prescriber survey was 80 percent.

FDA’s Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies Program
Risk mitigation strategies are designed to eliminate, reduce or control the impact of known risks intrinsic with a specified undertaking, prior to any injury or fiasco. To anticipate the business future, it is first essential to comprehend both the historical and actual business performance. Cumulative business data will indicate what is practical, what has been implemented, and what has worked effectively in the past. Some risks will continue to occur and recur, such as dependencies, modifications in necessities, environment and conditions and skill set gaps. Business analytics can be used to describe what is happening in the business, track performance, recognize issues that need to be addressed, and convey accurate information for analysis, planning and forecasting. The steps included in risk evaluation are as follows.

We reviewed REMS programs issued since to evaluate their rationales, characteristics, and consistencies, and evaluated their impact on improving drug safety. ETASU characteristics were summarized. REMS risks were compared with labeled risks, including black box warnings. Forty-two programs were analyzed. Seven incorporated drugs of the same class.
