What sources are used to create the FDA Calendar?

SEC Filings and press releases.

Is the FDA Calendar an official resource?

No. The FDA Calendar is run independently of the FDA. There is no affiliation between the FDA and BioPharmCatalyst.

Is the share price shown on your website live?

No. Financial data (e.g. price and volume) are updated once every 20 minutes and that data is already 15 minutes delayed from our feed provider so the data you see will be delayed in total 15-35 minutes. 

I noticed you have colors under the different stages (e.g. ARRY Phase 2 has red and orange highlighted under where it says Phase 2. What do these 6 possible color highlights represent?

The six stages represent the different stages of drug development, from Phase 1 (Stage 1) to the final stage when the FDA makes their decision whether to approve the drug or not (Stage 6). This is not an official scale, rather just one used by BioPharmCatalyst.

1) Phase 1, Phase 1b, Phase 1/2
2) Phase 2, Phase 2b
3) Phase 3
4) NDA filing
5) PDUFA 
6) Approved/CRL

Why are some drugs not listed on BioPharmCatalyst?

SMALL CAP - Biotech stocks with key binary events/catalysts - FDA Approval/PDUFA dates, Advisory Committee and Phase 1, 2 & 3 trial data releases dates are noted in the FDA Calendar. If a trial is ongoing but the company has not yet provided an upcoming catalyst date, the drug concerned will ONLY be listed in the Drug Pipeline Database and will not be listed in the FDA Calendar until a catalyst date is provided.

LARGE CAP - generally only Phase 3 catalysts noted in company presentations and/or earnings releases are shown. Earlier stage drugs (Phase 2) are included if the company provides catalyst date updates for the trial in earnings releases/presentations.

Only NASDAQ stocks are covered. Stocks listed on PINK/OTC exchanges are not covered.
