November 18th, 2014 by Chassin

The FDA has been holding public meetings on 20 different disease areas, one disease per area over the last year or so to continue through 2017. Alopecia Areata is on a preliminary list to be chosen as a disease in the FDA’s process for  patient-focused input for the 2016-2017 disease-specific meetings. The FDA is currently inviting commentary on this preliminary list.
