New York, May 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "New Drug Approvals and Their Contract Manufacture - 2023 Edition" -

Both small molecule and biologic new molecular entity (NME) approvals declined substantially, causing overall NDA approvals to drop, which meant fewer commercial-scale production contracts for the most innovative products comparative to other recent years.

In June 2021, the FDA granted accelerated approval of Biogen’s Aduhelm for Alzheimer’s disease, despite there being little to no evidence of clinical benefit and the majority of an FDA advisory panel voting against the drug’s approval.This event caused controversy and added to pre-existing claims that the FDA approval process may not be as rigorous as it was in the past, the long-standing push for speed in the FDA approval process having meant a reduced level of certainty and evidence related to a drug.

As a result of these issues, there may have been an increased reluctance to authorize innovative drugs for use.
