Considerations for the use of real-world evidence in non-interventional studies: Comments for the FDA
Earlier this year, the FDA published a guidance document titled “Real-World Evidence: Considerations Regarding Non-Interventional Studies for Drug and Biological Products”, that provides study design and analysis recommendations to sponsors looking to use real-world data (RWD) in observational research. This guidance, which emphasizes the potential for real-world evidence (RWE) to meet regulatory standards for evidence generation, underscores the FDA's recognition of RWE as a valuable component in drug and biological product evaluation.

Evidence Unlocked: How AI and Technology Is the Key to More Robust Observational Research
As stakeholders increasingly seek more robust evidence from registries and observational studies, researchers must adopt innovative methods for generating data. Previously restricted by outdated study models, evidence generation can now be more efficient and flexible through the use of cutting-edge technologies, including artificial intelligence. New technology-driven methods frees life science companies from historical constraints, enabling a deeper understanding of the course of disease, drug effectiveness, safety, and quality of life (QoL).

Real-World Data By Design — Incorporating Different Data Types into Clinical Trials
With increasing applications of real-world data (RWD) upstream in the drug development lifecycle, it’s critical to recognize that there is no one-size-fits-all approach. So how can one incorporate different types of data from patients into clinical trials? Through conversation with a panel of experts from the biopharma industry and health technology companies, we will discuss scenarios when patient-mediated, tokenized and/or site-based approaches are warranted. Gaelan Ritter, Sneha Kishnani, and Andrew Larsen share their unique perspectives on the importance of a tailored yet flexible strategy and the potential value this can unlock for researchers and patients alike.Watch the recorded webinar or read the transcript below to explore design considerations for incorporating different types of real-world data into clinical trials.

At the Intersection of Mental Health and Chronic Disease
Mental health can mean a lot of different things to different people with seemingly vague definitions. MentalHealth.gov takes broad strokes to include emotional, psychological, and social well-being at the interface of how a person thinks, acts, and feels. Indicators that something is out of balance can present with a number of uncomfortable behaviors including having low or no energy, having unexplained aches or pains, or experiencing severe mood swings. It would be difficult to look through the entire list of possible symptoms and not relate at some level at some point in time, suggesting that mental wellness is just one fabric to the many layers that influence how we function on any given day. Unresolved or persistent mental health issues can lead to a diagnosis of mental illness, but it feels more fluid than other conditions or diseases that use more measurable diagnostic criteria such as abnormal lab values or imaging modalities to diagnose.

Why PicnicHealth Data?
Recognizing the need for accelerating medical product development and modernizing the drug approval process, the 21st Century CURES Act was enacted in 2016 and augmented the ability for the FDA to incorporate real world data and patient perspectives into the drug approval process. While randomized clinical trials are still the gold standard, observational data is increasingly utilized to supplement clinical trial design, as synthetic controls in single arm trials and for label expansion.
