Session Title: Give Me a Break, Is That Really a Disease Claim?


Todd A. Harrison

Claudia A. Lewis

Description: Let's face it, if you want to sell your product you will need to make a claim about it.  However, a claim is in the eye of the beholder and can have varying meanings depending on who is looking.  You may be able to say more than you think. Join Venable partners Todd A. Harrison and Claudia A. Lewis, along with Najla Guthrie, CEO of KGK Synergize, as they explore how the FDA, FTC, and other key government regulatory bodies review and evaluate claims.

During this interactive presentation, attendees will learn:

  • Key components that comprise a claim

  • How the FDA, FTC, and other government regulatory bodies evaluate claims

  • How to effectively design clinical trials around claims

  • Practical tips to evaluate and conduct a risk/benefit analysis when creating claims

In addition to Venable speakers Todd A. Harrison and Claudia A. Lewis, the following Venable thought leaders will also be present at Engredea: Michelle C. Jackson, Heili Kim, Stefan J. Kirchanski, Miguel A. Lopez, John G. Moore, Daniel S. Silverman, and M. Lily Woodland.
