Hi John
In principle there is a need for a PIP for all new drug products except generics so also for fixed dose combination (FDC) products, especially if the individual references' dosages are applicable to adolescent and are commonly used together. I am not talking about PK studies but efficacy(!). The fact that the new FDC will have a new dosing interval does not make any difference. Of course you can apply for a PIP-waiver but what would be the arguments? Why should the new product be kept from children? Just saving time and money will not convince PDCO.

Kind regards and have a nice day

A central lesson of science is that to understand complex issues
(or even simple ones), we must try to free our minds of dogma and
to guarantee the freedom to publish, to contradict, and to experiment.
