Innovative characteristics

In medicinal products, this may be defined as offering additional clinical efficacy or effectiveness as compared to the current best standard of care. Improvement to the use of a medicine in addition to an added clinical benefit (such as convenience to patients of, for example, a different mode of delivery, or other characteristics that may improve adherence to therapy, with resulting improvements in clinical outcomes and/or quality of life) may also be considered innovative characteristics.
