Novel Excipients, DMFs, and Atypical Actives Among Pressing Issues on IPEC-Americas’ Front Burner

Novel excipients, drug master files (DMFs), and atypical actives are among the pressing issues on which the International Pharmaceutical Excipients Council (IPEC) is actively engaged with the major regulatory agencies and standards organizations around the world.

Role of Established Conditions Drawing Attention in Global Dialogue on ICH Q12’S Potential

The interpretation and application of the approaches for determining established conditions (ECs) provided in the Step 2 draft of ICH Q12 and how these interface with regulatory reporting expectations is drawing particular attention as industry explores the opportunities that the ICH Q12 concepts present in practice.

IPQ Monthly Update – May/June 2018 in Review

The issue includes in-depth stories on: ● the intensive dialogue going on now in the wake of the emergence of an ICH Q12 Step 2b draft for public comment ● the role EFPIA’s European Biopharma Enterprises (EBE) is playing in identifying and building consensus around the most pressing issues on the global regulatory agenda for biotech manufacturing and control, and ● the experience at a leading in vitro fertilization (IVF) clinic in figuring out the cause of dramatic periodic declines in the clinic’s normal best-in-class success rates and what needed to be done to prevent them, including the development of much more powerful air purification technology.

Experience with In Vitro Fertilization Clinics Raises Strong Warnings on Cell Culture/Processing Air Purification

Experience with in vitro fertilization (IVF) clinics is sending a strong signal that applying significantly heightened air purification standards and more advanced technology to meet them may be critical across all cell culture/processing operations.

CMC Priorities of EFPIA’s European Biopharmaceutical Enterprises Include ADCs, Drug/Device Combos and Statistics

Drug device combinations (DDCs), antibody drug conjugates (ADCs), and the use of statistics in comparability assessments are among the current focal points of the European Biopharmaceutical Enterprises (EBE) in its efforts to identify and build consensus around the most pressing issues on the global regulatory agenda for biotech manufacturing and control.

Pharma is Exploring How to Maximize ICH Q12 Value in Practice; Q12 EWG Encourages Feedback

IPQ Monthly Update – March/April 2018 in Review

Industry and regulators in the US and Europe are making a concerted effort to improve the depth and clarity of their communications on the manufacturing and control of drug/biologic/device combination products. The three stories in this issue explore the challenges of melding the drug and device regulatory worlds and what is being done to address them.

Understanding Drug/Device Terminology Differences is Critical to Combination Product Control and Regulatory Communications, Industry Experts are Stressing

Industry experts are stressing that the payoff for combination products in understanding and bridging the drug/biologic/device terminology differences is a smoother development process, a simpler, more effective control system, and better communications with CMC reviewers and GMP inspectors.

FDA Inspection Findings Provide Additional Insight on CGMP Expectations for Combination Product Manufacturers

The light being shed on the current GMP regulatory expectations for risk management and manufacturing control of combination products by FDA’s inspection engagement with pharma sponsors and their device partners has been a focal point at recent conferences in the US and Europe.

Improving Communications on Drug/Device Combination Product Quality and Performance is an Increasing Priority in the US and Europe

Industry and regulators in the US and Europe are wrestling with how best to interpret and communicate drug quality-by-design (QbD) concepts, device design controls (DC) and overall final product risk management in the drug/biologic/device combination product context.
