This draft guidance is intended to advise sponsors on the premarketing assessment of a drug’s effect on blood pressure. Elevated blood pressure is known to increase the risk of stroke, heart attack, and death. The effect of a drug on blood pressure is, therefore, an important consideration in risk assessment and product labeling. This draft guidance revises the draft guidance for industry “Assessment of Pressor Effects of Drugs” issued on May 31, 2018.
