Guidance May Help Companies Get Breast Cancer Drugs to Market Faster
Drugmakers could bring breast cancer treatments to market a decade earlier with new FDA guidance on trial designs for evaluating pathologic complete response (pCR) to support accelerated approval of drugs to treat high-risk, early-stage breast cancer.
