In this episode, Etienne Nichols and Ellie Reynolds explore FDA's Breakthrough Device designation. They discuss pursuing breakthrough status, aligning marketing strategies with FDA review, and navigating the medical device industry. This episode provides a roadmap for this complex regulatory terrain.
Learn about the benefits and scrutiny of the breakthrough designation, hear examples that emphasize the need for precise data and quality in the application process, and listen as we explain the planning and considerations for success, and how innovation can thrive within regulation.
Some of the highlights of this episode include:
"Say you are a direct competitor with someone else, and they got breakthrough but they're not on the market yet... You can still get breakthrough for the same indication. FDA does not consider that as a cleared or approved alternative - even if they're miles ahead of you."
