Regulatory Pathway Analysis

We can perform a regulatory pathway analysis for drugs, devices, biologics, or combination products.

We perform these assessments for the US or other countries as requested and author our findings in a presentation or report.

Orphan Drug Designation (ODD) Requests

We have helped many clients with their Orphan Drug Designation (ODD) requests. First, we conduct an assessment of disease prevalence and existing ODD indications for an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) to confirm eligibility. We then prepare the ODD request per FDA requirements and submit if requested.

Gap Assessments

Our regulatory experts have experience performing gap assessments of our clients' clinical strategies or clinical endpoints including the overall clinical program, synopsis of a clinical study, or identification of primary endpoints. We can also perform a gap assessment of the eCTD sections of your New Dug Application (NDA) or Biologic License Application (BLA) and identify potential regulatory risks and level of risk with respect to Refuse to File (RTF) or potential for approval. We can also perform a regulatory assessment of the device class, product code, predicate assessment (if applicable) to determine the appropriate pathway for commercialization in the US or other countries as specified; identify any special controls or relevant guidance. Our team can also help assess and identify new indications for existing drugs or new dosage forms/route of administration.

Frequently Asked Regulatory Affair Questions (FAQs)

Does the FDA approve cosmetics before they go on market?
Cosmetic products and ingredients are not subject to FDA premarket approval authority, with the exception of color additives (other than those intended for use as coal-tar hair dyes). FDA's authority over cosmetics is post-market. FDA may take regulatory action if it has information to support that a cosmetic is adulterated or misbranded. The agency can pursue action through the Department of Justice in the federal court system to remove adulterated and misbranded cosmetics from the market. 
What is the definition of General Wellness Product?
A general wellness product has (1) an intended use that relates to maintaining or encouraging a general state of health or a healthy activity, or (2) an intended use that relates the role of healthy lifestyle with helping to reduce the risk or impact of certain chronic diseases or conditions and where it is well understood and accepted that healthy lifestyle choices may play an important role in health outcomes for the disease or condition. 
What is Software as a Medical Device?
Software as a Medical Device (SaMD) is often described as “software intended to be used for one or more medical purposes without being part of a hardware medical device."  Use of SaMD is continuing to increase.  It can be used across a broad range of technology platforms, including medical device platforms, commercial "off-the-shelf" platforms, and virtual networks, to name a few. Such software was previously referred to by industry, international regulators, and health care providers as "standalone software," "medical device software," and/or "health software." 
With which regulatory filings can Kymanox assist?
Kymanox interacts on behalf of our clients with regulatory bodies and health authorities to lead various filing activities (e.g., IDE, PMA, IND, NDA, BLA) and to lead negotiations that resolve issues and respond effectively to 483s, Warning Letters, Consent Decrees, and Complete Response Letters.
