The National Cancer Policy Forum held a public workshop on Tuesday, March 26th, 2019 on Updating Labels for Generic Oncology Drugs. This workshop convened expert stakeholders that discussed the challenges and opportunities to update generic oncology drugs labels that are inconsistent with the current evidence base and use in clinical practice. Discussions focused primarily on considering the potential data sources and evidence requirements for adding new indications to outdated labels, including indications for select patient populations (such as pediatric oncology).
