5 Other RD/OD Priorities Expansion of the Humanitarian Use Device (HUD) Program – Adults – Allow profit under certain circumstances Re-authorization and Improvements in OD grant program – More $ possible – Designation not required

6 Implementation User fee provisions become effective 10/1/12 Some parts may take years to implement (normal) Provisions a mix: some self-implementing; others will require guidance; some regulations Most RD/OD provisions will have early impact Potential barriers: – Funding – Elections

7 FDA Funding In FY 12: – BA (taxpayer) appropriations = $2.5 billion = 75% – User fees = $849M = 25% (excludes tobacco uf) – Uneven impact—drug review process 65% user fees New law increases $ and % user fees and # of fees In FY 13, FDA faces possible BA cuts & sequester Funding Cuts Will Slow All Activities Regardless of Funding Source

8 2012 Elections and Aftermath Presidency, Senate and House at stake Regardless of who wins: deficit reduction priority If new President, then: – Possible freeze on new federal regulations – Acting commissioner for unknown period – New commissioner faces confirmation hearings No “must-pass” FDA legislative vehicles in 2013

9 Post-PDUFA Rare Disease & Orphan Drug Agenda? Multiple successes mean new dialogue later this year about priorities for rd/od community Possible FDA issues: benefit-risk standards; diagnostics; and limited population studies Possible Access issues – Reimbursement issues (e.g. off-label use) – Patient cost sharing/utilization barriers (private & state) – If ACA is overturned or repealed: status quo on uninsured, pre-existing conditions and lifetime caps
