The FDA Listening Session on Adult Dermatomyositis summary is now available!
MSU hosted our first-ever FDA Listening Session on Adult Dermatomyositis on April 26, 2022. This was an opportunity to facilitate the sharing of the patient perspective with FDA staff from 12 different offices and departments.
This patient-focused session was centered around the unique stories of dermatomyositis patients and caregivers. Our intent was to give the FDA an appreciation of the diversity of disease manifestations while highlighting the lack of effective treatments and underscoring the need for improved and accessible clinical trial designs.
Every patient’s journey is different and carries different burdens, paralleling the clinical heterogeneity with which DM presents and progresses. Only through the lens of each patient’s life experiences can we find ways to provide better care management and improve the quality of life for patients, caregivers, and families impacted by dermatomyositis.
This summary is also provided on the Patient Listening Session Summaries page at the FDA.
