Beyond Technology

As electronic data capture (EDC) is becoming the standard for clinical trials, CROs are under pressure to offer this system and carry out projects that competitively meet time, cost and quality demands. Decisions about the choice of EDC partner must take the sponsorís interests into account in order to establish an efficient collaboration. EDC vendors are advised to offer special programmes for this purpose.

STRATEGIC EDC PARTNERSHIPS

According to Thomson CenterWatch, the proportion of EDC studies in 2007 exceeded the 40 per cent mark for the first time, with respect to all clinical studies commissioned worldwide (1). Furthermore, it is predicted that this technology will become the standard by 2010. Since further prognoses indicate that the market tends towards standardisation of EDC systems, many CROs choose not to develop their own system and instead work together with specialised EDC vendors.

Applikon Biotechnology collaborates with Emerson for new Life Sciences R&D solution: V-Control

Applikon Biotechnology has launched V-Control for R&D scale bioreactors, a sophisticated automation solution developed in collaboration with Emerson. It uses a scaled version of Emersonís DeltaV distributed control system (DCS), DeltaV Discovery, designed for research and discovery laboratories. V-Control enables easy process control and data up-scaling in one platform. Furthermore, it provides organizations that already use the DeltaV DCS at production scale with reliable automation scaled to fit the needs of the laboratory environment, making tech transfer easier.

Extractables and Leachables Testing: A Risk Based Approach

RSSL

Pharmaceutical products are in contact with many external components during both manufacture and usage and small amounts of chemicals may leach from these components with a potential health risk to the patient. Extractables and leachables (E&L) studies therefore play an important role in verifying the safety of a drug product over its lifetime. Regulatory organisations such as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) are taking an increased interest in the interactions of various drug delivery devices, pharmaceutical product containers and medical devices with drug product and/or patient and this field is therefore growing in importance. Regulatory guidelines indicate that an extractables profile should be determined for all materials that contact the drug product. Once established, this profile can be used to determine whether any of these extractables are present as leachables within the product. If a leachable is detected, amounts can be determined using validated analytical methods, after which a biological risk can be established based on the exposure. This white paper will provide an overview of the processes used to determine extractables and leachables from plastics.
