The EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR) 2017/745 and the EU In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (IVDR) 2017/746 came into effect on May 26, 2021 and 2022, respectively. Namely, these new European regulations bring significant changes for MedTech IVD. Among the most relevant are expanded product coverage, alignment with European and international regulations, reclassification based on risk, stricter clinical evidence requirements, heightened scrutiny and involvement of Notified Bodies, increased focus on post-market surveillance, and updated quality management system (QMS) requirements.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLINICAL TRIALS, CLINICAL INVESTIGATIONS AND CLINICAL PERFORMANCE STUDIES

  • EU MDR 2017/745 defines clinical investigation as a systematic study involving human subjects to evaluate the safety or performance of a medical device;
  • EU IVDR 2017/746 defines clinical performance study as a study done to establish or confirm the clinical performance of a device, which is the ability of a device to produce results that are related to a particular clinical condition, physiological or pathological process or state, and the target population and intended user;
  • ICH E6 defines clinical trial as an investigation in human subjects intended to discover or verify the clinical, pharmacological and/or other pharmacodynamic effects of an investigational product, and/or to identify any adverse reactions to an investigational product, and/or to study absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion of an investigational product with the object of ascertaining its safety and/or efficacy.
