MDF held the first myotonic dystrophy Patient-Focused Drug Development meeting with key senior leadership from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as part of the 2016 MDF Annual Conference. We designed the meeting to build on the work MDF has been conducting with the FDA to define and optimize the regulatory pathway for potential DM therapies. The meeting, the first Externally-Led PFDD meeting and the largest PFDD meeting held to date with over 200 attendees in the room and online, is helping change the way the FDA understands DM, the DM community and the approach to regulatory review for DM therapies.
