ARSCI Made Easy
On October 1st we launched ARSCI in every area of the company. Anyone who has used it will tell you - it's in the act of using it that you learn its value. In this article we focus on some examples from people who have used it successfully and and as a result, continue to use it.

REMS and ARSCI
On September 6, 2019, a week before the APAC for AR101 was held, the FDA notified Aimmune that a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) program would need to be put in place for AR101 as an approval requirement. A REMS program is meant to provide risk mitigation strategies to ensure the benefits of the treatment outweigh the risks. These mitigation strategies require tracking, monitoring and reporting to the FDA.
In the case of AR101, participants in the REMS program include patients, health care facilities and specialty pharmacies.
