HBD East 2019 Think Tank Meeting

Through Japan-US Medical Device Harmonization by Doing (HBD), the U.S. FDA, MHLW/PMDA, academia, and industry developed internationally agreed upon standards for global clinical trials related to cardiovascular devices, and addressed regulatory barriers that may delay timely medical device approvals in both countries.

In order to announce the outcome of recent HBD activities and discuss future plans with the public, the HBD East 2019 Think Tank Meeting was held on December 11, 2019 in Tokyo.

Approximately 170 people from regulators, academia and industries in the U.S. and Japan participated in this meeting and the high-profile topics such as utilization of real world evidence and promotion of pediatric medical device development were discussed in addition to providing working group activity updates. In panel discussions, several experts shared their experiences and discussed potential solutions for challenges in the development of medical devices.
