    FDA Regulation of Mobile Apps

    in Health

    Nathan Cortez, JD co-wrote an article on FDA regulation of mobile apps published in the July 24, 2014 issue of NEJM. Luckily, we snagged an opportunity to interview him - you can listen here.


    We covered a wide variety of topics including:



    Why regulate mHealth anyway?
    The new FDA guidance — what needs to be regulated and what does not?
    How does the FDA handle at continual updates of mobile health products – so different from the pharmaceuticals that they regulate?  How do they decide whether an update constitutes a major change, requiring re-review and one that is minor and does not?
    What is “substantially equivalence” and how is it being used in mHealth
    How does the FDA handle mHealth products that provide consumer decision support (CDS)?  What is the difference between low risk and high risk CDS?
    Does the FDA have the right people/processes in place to provide oversight of mHealth?


    Professor Cortez teaches and writes in the areas of health law, administrative law, and FDA law.  His research focuses on emerging markets in health care and biotechnology. Prof. Cortez has become one of the world’s leading legal scholars on medical tourism, patient mobility, and cross-border health insurance, and has published several articles and book chapters on the legal and ethical implications of these phenomena. His research also addresses mobile health technologies, how to regulate innovations that disrupt static regulatory regimes, the First Amendment restraints on FDA regulation (including FDA's graphic tobacco warnings), immigration federalism, and alternative modes of regulation.

    Pharma Brand Ads Within Mobile Apps

    in Business

    Myrbetriq®'s Advertising Partnership with RunPee App


    Pharmaguy interviews Walt Johnston, Vice President of US Marketing and New Product Planning, and Emily Sitrin Mason, Consumer Marketing Director - Urology Franchise, at Astellas (see Bios). We discuss a new partnership with Astellas Pharma US and the RunPee mobile app as part of the company's marketing campaign for Myrbetriq® (mirabegron) featuring an animated bladder character. 


    The RunPee app is a movie-viewing app that tells you the best time to "run and pee" without missing the best scenes. While the ultimate goal is to encourage individuals to speak with a health care professional about overactive bladder (OAB), Astellas is encouraging those who experience symptoms of OAB to enjoy the movies this summer and download the app to determine the best time to use the restroom during movies if needed. 


    Questions/Topics of Discussion



    Give us a little background about this partnership. Why did Astellas decide to partner with RunPee?
    Describe how the app works
    Are branded Myrbetriq® ads served up within the app? Describe how that is done.
    What is the target audience for Myrbetriq® and how does the app help you reach this audience?
    What are are the KPIs for this campaign? Has it been successful so far? What data can you share with us?
    What have you learned from this partnership?
