ACR-FDA Summit


May 17–18



Program Information

The focus of the summit is to address care, policy, and research-relevant topics on assessment of long-term safety, clinical efficacy, and structural outcomes in conjunction with novel study designs and biomarkers development in the field of rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis.

Conducting clinical trials in these areas has become complex and challenging because prolonged placebo use is no longer appropriate or acceptable control to the community and patients. Respectively, stakeholders in both academia and industry, are faced with challenges related to the development of efficient, feasible and ethical RCT designs as they focus on less toxic and more durable regimens for rheumatology patients with RA or PsA.

The ACR-FDA Summit will be an interactive, consensus building format that will bring together various stakeholders from academia and industry to provide a broad perspective on current clinical development challenges and offer practical means to overcome these challenges.

Target Audience
This activity is designed for rheumatologists, physicians, clinicians, healthcare providers who care for patients with rheumatic diseases, and those interested or engaged in clinical research.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss ways to maintain interest in RA and PsA drug development
  • Review innovative study designs, including use of novel outcome measures and patient reported outcomes (PROs)
