Topics for Discussion
The main objectives of the “Evaluating Immunosuppressive Effects of In Utero Exposure to Drug and Biologic Products” workshop are to:

— Discuss the available data on the placental transfer of drug and biological products with immunosuppressive effects.

— Discuss the potential clinical impact on infants exposed in utero.

— Identify gaps in knowledge.

— Explore innovative and practical approaches for collection of relevant data.

— Allow an open dialogue amongst regulators, academia, industry, and patient organizations regarding the potential safety concerns and approaches to data collection.
