Put R back in R&D & recognize It is a “complex” product and process!
Invest smartly in analytics, mathematics & statistics, and large sample sizes; and in systems/integrative thinking and data integration
Get to know the RLD – multiple lots; open the door with large sample size
Build capability to justify measured RLD variability is relevant to development of the proposed generic/biosimilar
Exquisite regulatory communication strategy
This is not a ‘complicated process’ for which typical “good practices” will work seamlessly (e.g., typical project management approach); this is a complex process – with multiple interactions and “emergent properties”
Treat it as it is - a complex process and plan; anticipate and address “emergent issues” - in technical, regulatory and legal dimensions; at a certain point be prepared for stakeholder (payers, patient groups,..) communications
