    In our webinar titled “Antibacterial drugs: Clinical development for non-developers Part 1: Traditional development – tiers A and B” with David Shlaes, we received more questions from the audience than we could answer during the session. See below one of the open audience questions.

    Please see find a recording of this webinar here.

    One webinar participant asked: Do you find Medicare’s New Technology Add-on Payment (NTAP) program helpful? If not, why not? What would it take to make the program workable?
