Summary  
Bioequivalence (BE) studies focus on demonstration of absence of difference in rate and extent between two products.  It serves as a major component in evaluating therapeutic equivalence.  Therapeutically equivalent products are expected to have the same safety and efficacy profiles, when administered under the conditions listed in the product labeling.  For generic drugs, BE studies confirm the clinical equivalence between the generic and reference products.  For new drugs, BE studies verify the clinical equivalence between different formulations and sometimes between different strengths.  As such, bioequivalence is an integral part of development and regulations for both generic and new drugs.
 
This presentation focuses on the scientific and regulatory considerations for establishing bioequivalence of generic drug products.  The approaches to determine bioequivalence, the appropriate bioequivalence study designs, and the bioanalytical and statistical considerations for bioequivalence studies will be discussed in details.  Waivers for bioequivalence study will also be elaborated. 

Speaker’s Bio: 
Dr. Bing V. Li is an expert pharmacologist and current serves as Acting Deputy Director in the Division of Bioequivalence I, Office of Bioequivalence, Office of Generic Drugs, Center of Drug Evaluation and Research, FDA.  Her current responsibility is to direct and oversee the work of highly skilled staff of professionals in reviewing drug product bioequivalence studies submitted in Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDAs), develop guidelines applicable to the completion of reviews, and plan and manage the regulatory review operations.
