Innovative medicinal products

Innovative medicinal products

It is up to AIFA and the Scientific Technical Committee to determine the definition of innovativeness, its evaluation and to grant the status of innovative medicinal product which presupposes the evaluation of three basic elements: therapeutic need, added therapeutic value and quality of clinical evidence submitted by the company to support the application for the innovative status of a medicinal product. AIFA has provided that the evaluation of this attribute should take place through a single model for all medicinal products, but allows, if necessary, the use of additional specific indicators.

 

Criteria for the classification of innovative medicinal products and innovative oncological medicinal products

With Resolution No. 1535/2017, AIFA has identified the criteria for the classification of innovative medicinal products and innovative oncological medicinal products pursuant to Article 1, paragraph 402 of Law No. 232 of 11 December 2016.
