Biopharmaceuticals - Quality Development and Documentation
Learn about the quality issues specific to biopharmaceuticals, which also covers the regulatory characterisation of a biopharmaceutical product and the stability specifications needed for approval of these medicinal products.
This course gives you knowledge about the scientific background of biotechnological products and the regulatory requirements to fulfill, in order to obtain approval of these types of medicinal products.
You will get an understanding of the quality issues specific to biopharmaceuticals, for example; the generation of a recombinant microorganism, the expression of the product from the microorganisms and its purification, and the regulatory expectations for characterisation of a biopharmaceutical product and to release/stability specifications set for these types of products.
As process changes are inevitable during development of a biological/biotechnological product this course will provide the implications of changes in the production process and elaborate the concept of comparability.
In addition to providing the students with a general understanding of specific quality issues for biopharmaceuticals, this course will focus on how to prepare regulatory CMC/Quality strategies and how to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements throughout the clinical development and post-approval processes.
The discussions on CMC/Quality strategies will include both EU and FDA aspects, and the lectures will focus attention on both EU and FDA regulatory procedures for approval of biopharmaceuticals. Further, the course will guide the students through the structure of CMC/Quality sections for IND/CTA and BLA/MAA in the CTD format.
This course will provide you with an understanding of the basic principles of manufacturing biopharmaceuticals – from the recombinant starting material to the final product. This include product characterization and setting specifications as well as the specific quality issues of biopharmaceuticals. You will also be able to evaluate relevant regulations and guidelines for biopharmaceuticals.
You will learn about the critical parts of CMC/Quality sections of the submission file, evaluate information provided by CMC/Quality stakeholders and prepare regulatory CMC/Quality strategies consider both FDA and EU aspects throughout the clinical development.
You will be able to apply best practice in product characterisation and setting of release/stability specifications of a biopharmaceutical, including comparability issues related to manufacturing changes, when preparing a CMC/Quality meeting with Authorities, and when structuring the CMC/Quality sections for IND/CTA and BLA/MAA in the CTD format.
