May 17, 2022 – People living with schizophrenia and other psychosis spectrum disorders are too often misunderstood or ignored – by the public, by the healthcare system – and current treatments are outdated and often cause significant side effects. On Nov. 2, the schizophrenia community will finally have the spotlight, as those living with the condition and their family members share their treatment needs and concerns with drug developers and FDA staff who review new drug applications. The Externally-Led Patient Focused Drug Development (PFDD) meeting – “Reimagine Schizophrenia: Transforming How We Are Treated, Function and Thrive” – offers the chance to make what matters to those living with the neurobiological brain disease a higher priority in drug development and the FDA review process.
