Development and Approval Strategy Formulation

Traditional drug development via the 505(b)(1) approval pathway takes an average of 12 years from end to end. In contrast, a 505(b)(2) development program can be completed in just two to five years. But this shortened development pathway demands expertise — Camargo is adept at navigating the regulatory waters surrounding 505(b)(2). Our team specializes in de-risking and shortening development programs. In particular, we design development plans to acquire and present data, study reports and well-reasoned arguments to meet the strategic needs of your company, address regulatory requirements and fulfill the needs of your target markets, often niche markets. Through exacting feasibility assessment, gap analysis and typical work requests (e.g., IND, pre-INDs), every step we take is toward viable product approval, no matter the product form or therapeutic indication at hand.
