Avoiding Potential Pitfalls: Phase Appropriate CMC Development and Regulatory Considerations

Life Sciences, Drug Discovery & Development, Commercialization & HEOR,
  • Thursday, June 20, 2019

Incorporation of phase appropriate development strategies is becoming increasingly essential to manage the balance between speed, cost and completeness during development. The possibilities for both Chemistry Manufacturing and Control (CMC) development and filing approaches range from the minimalist style to a continuously supported style. The minimalist style is preparing only the things necessary for the next filing to save money and time. The continuously supported style is keeping a development program up-to-date and fully current  so filings are ready to go. There are pros and cons to both styles, and while there is no right answer, there probably is a “best answer” to suit each company’s culture, funding runway, and the ultimate goal for the project.

In this webinar, development and regulatory experts will discuss the phases of solid oral dosage form development from a CMC perspective. At each phase, they will identify the minimal expectations for CMC development and filing, as well as other considerations to address, thereby setting the stage for later success. In addition, they will present key learnings and past experiences of issues that came up, how they were resolved and how they could have been avoided or mitigated by taking certain strategic actions earlier in development.

This webinar will touch on several case studies that will alert drug developers to (and help them avoid) potential pitfalls and late-stage gaps in their CMC development.
