PatientsLikeMe, Inc. Key Developments

PatientsLikeMe and the FDA Sign Research Collaboration Agreement

PatientsLikeMe and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have signed a research collaboration agreement to determine how patient-reported data can give new insights into drug safety. Under the collaboration, PatientsLikeMe and the FDA will systematically explore the potential of patient-generated data to inform regulatory review activities related to risk assessment and risk management. The cornerstone of the FDA’s post-approval drug safety surveillance is a spontaneous reporting system consisting of individual case safety reports. Reporting adverse events to the FDA is mandatory for drug product manufacturers but voluntary for healthcare professionals and patients. The majority of these individual case safety reports are submitted by healthcare professionals and patients to drug product manufacturers, who then have regulatory requirements to report them to the FDA. The PatientsLikeMe data are generated in a different context by patients themselves, and provide important real-time insights into the nuances inherent in patients’ experiences over time, including drug tolerance, adherence and quality of life.

Patientslikeme Appoints Jason Johnson as Executive Vice President and Head of Research and Development

PatientsLikeMe appointed Jason Johnson as Executive Vice President and head of research and development (R&D). Johnson leads the company's research, data science, and informatics teams, which focus on analyzing and merging patient-reported and other data types to develop models of disease progression and generate new insights about disease, treatments, and health. Johnson reports directly to CEO Martin Coulter.
