In attempt to encourage innovative drug development, the FDA has developed four approaches to expedite the drug approval process. These four approaches include Fast Track, Breakthrough Therapy, Accelerated Approval and Priority Review. Fast Track was introduced to accelerate the approval of medications for serious conditions and to fulfill unmet medical need. Accelerated Approval is a pathway that permits medications for serious conditions that fulfill unmet medical need to receive approval based on a surrogate endpoint. Priority Review is designated for medications that when they get approved they will bring significant improvements in the safety or effectiveness of the treatment, diagnosis, or prevention of serious conditions when compared to standard applications. Breakthrough therapy designation is anovel pathway introduced in 2012. Breakthrough therapy designation is process intended to treat serious or life threatening disease and the approved drug may demonstrate significant advantage over the available therapies. The objective of the research was to identify which of the expedited programs shorten development time and which products and classes benefit the most. It was analyzed new molecular entities that have been approved over the last 6 years (2009-2014). The entities were categorized by therapeutic area, line of therapy and mechanism-specific order of entry. Then it was evaluated whether the new entities had utilized one or more of the expedited programs, and whether the expedited program shortened the time from IND to regulatory approval.
