The process of seeking scientific advice from regulatory agencies and health technology assessment (HTA) bodies has expanded in recent years and more pharmaceutical companies are looking to take advantage of the opportunity. The most prolific providers of this scientific advice is the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the European Network for Health Technology Assessment (EUnetHTA) in Europe. They offer two different parallel consultation pathways – Consolidated Parallel Consultation and Individual Parallel Consultation – in which the EMA provides advice alongside multiple HTA bodies from different European countries (coordinated by EUnetHTA). This advice is intended to enhance manufacturers’ clinical development and plans for economic assessment, and there are 11 monthly slots available for submissions.
