About FDA

Number of Incoming New Drug Applications (NDAs), Biologics License Applications (BLAs), and Efficacy Supplements with electronic datasets received

Dictionary: To efficiently and effectively review the results of clinical trials submitted for NDAs, BLAs and Efficacy Supplements, statistical reviewers in CDER need electronic datasets from the studies conducted by industry. Beginning in 2004, under the auspices of The Critical Path Initiative, the Agency recommended that sponsors voluntarily use standards developed by the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC) to describe and format these studies. Using datasets based on the Study Data Tabulation Model (SDTM) and derived variables described by Analysis Data Model (ADaM) standards, CDER reviewers can use powerful tools, techniques and software to perform their evaluations. These standards can improve the efficiency and quality of CDER’s review processes and thereby meet the expectations of CDER’s 21st Century Review Initiative. These metrics measure the progress of our efforts to encourage industry to submit standards-based electronic datasets needed for the timely, high quality review of clinical trials.


These measures have been retired as CDER has created new measures for FY13 which align to their four functional areas of 1) Regulatory Review and Drug Safety, 2) Drug Quality and Compliance, 3) Transparency and Public Outreach, and 4) Regulatory Science Research.
