GLI provided comments to FDA on the importance of patient preference information (PPI)


Global Liver Institute provided comments to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on the importance of patient preference information (PPI). As described by the FDA, PPI captures the value patients place on features of medical devices. Well-designed and well-conducted PPI studies elicit which attributes are important to patients, how important they are, and what trade-offs patients are willing to make. 

GLI founder and CEO, Donna R. Cryer, JD stated, “When I founded Global Liver Institute, it was clear to me that patient perspectives were lacking in research and policy discussions, particularly related to the differences among patients that are under-represented in the data. We appreciate that the FDA is prioritizing efforts to address such challenges…We look forward to continuing to play a role in the development of revised guidance on PPI to ensure that the patient voice is genuinely reflected in the attributes identified and incorporated into clinical trials.”
