According to US Food and Drug Administration Agency, combination products are “therapeutic and diagnostic products that combine drugs, devices, and/or biological products”. Combination products are the latest trend in pharmaceutical industry resulting from fast technological advances that merge product types and blur the historical lines of separation between classical medical product definitions. These products can have different regulatory pathway for each component, impacting thus he regulatory processes for all aspects of product development and management, including preclinical testing, clinical investigation, marketing applications, manufacturing and quality control, adverse event reporting, promotion and advertising, and post-approval modifications.Digital therapeutics
Digital therapeutics (DTx) deliver evidence-based therapeutic interventions to patients that are driven by high quality software programs to prevent, manage, or treat a medical disorder or disease. They are used independently or in concert with medications, devices, or other therapies to optimize patient care and health outcomes. DTx products incorporate advanced technology best practices relating to design, clinical validation, usability, and data security. They are validated by regulatory bodies as required to support product claims regarding risk, efficacy, and intended use.
Digital therapeutics empower patients, healthcare providers, and payers with intelligent and accessible tools for addressing a wide range of conditions through high quality, safe, and effective data-driven interventions.
