Good morning @Username, sorry for missing this question – let's see if we can still help you with this

It's important to not confuse the directions for patient pieces and HCP detail aids. The situation you are describing in paragraph two appears to be mixing the directions for patient and HCP. Patient material should be non-promotional information. In the situation where there is a combination of multiple NOC and/or NOC/c’s which cross the same therapeutic category, the copy should be clearly limited to the NOC population. If the copy is broad and could encompass the NOC/c to some degree, the NOC/c would be required to be presented in the piece.

For the question in paragraph three, “at first mention of the therapeutic category” refers to pieces where there may be NOC and NOC/c in different therapeutic categories. For example NOC for RA and NOC/c for UC. If the piece doesn’t mention UC until page 3, the NOC/c disclosure is not required until that page as that is first mention.

In a situation where you have one NOC and one NOC/c within the same therapeutic area and presented together upfront, the first presented option within the document Guidance on Advertising for Drugs with Notice of Compliance with Conditions NOCc should be followed. For example, the complete boxed NOC/c copy from the cover should be presented.
