FDA: 35 Innovative New Drugs Approved in Fiscal Year 2011

  • Two-thirds of the new approvals were completed in a single review cycle, meaning sufficient evidence was provided by the manufacturer so that the FDA could move the application through the review process without requesting major new information;
  • Three were approved using "accelerated approval," a program under which the FDA approves safe and effective medically important new drugs quickly, and relies on subsequent post-market studies to confirm clinical benefit.
