Smart-4-Fabry - Innovation to improve the quality of life of Fabry disease patients

The European-funded project Smart-4-Fabry has been conceived to obtain a new nanoformulation of GLA enzyme using nanocapsules, that will improve the toleration and efficacy compared to the current enzyme replacement treatment with non-formulated GLA. The innovation aims to achieve a significant reduction of the actual high cost of Fabry disease treatment and an improvement in the quality of life of Fabry disease patients.

FDA published Video about OFM

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently published a video showing the potential of dermal open-flow microperfusion (dOFM) for generic drug development. 

FDA approval for most topical generic drugs requires a clinical endpoint study to compare the therapeutic effect with the original product. JOANNEUM RESEARCH HEALTH has developed a new method and strategy (dOFM) to apply for the approval of generic drugs without the need of a clinical endpoint study. Now, the FDA has released a short video illustrating the use of dOFM to evaluate bioequivalence for topical drugs.
