그렇다면 RWD·RWE의 정의 및 이점과 제한점은 무엇일까. FDA 정의에 따르면 RWD(real-world data, 실제임상자료)는 다양한 자료원을 통해 수집된 환자의 건강상태, 보건의료 전달체계와 관련된 각종 자료들을 의미한다.

의약품 개발 및 임상관련 규제의 변화

August 20, 2018

2016년 11월에 우리나라가 국제의약품규제조화위원회(ICH)에 6번째 회원국으로 가입한 이후, 중국 역시 2017년 6월에 ICH 회원국이 됐다. 그 동안 중국 의약품 시장은 전반적으로 제네릭 시장으로서, 전체 제약 시장의 규모는 미국에 이어 2위로 성장한 반면, 신약 개발 수준은 글로벌 제약사에 비해 훨씬 뒤쳐져 있었다. 그러나, 중국은 향후 제약강국으로서의 경쟁력을 빠르게 키워나갈 것으로 예상되며, ICH 가입에 따라 의약품 허가와 관련한 규제를 국제 표준화에 맞게 변경할 것으로 기대된다.
