Exponential Developments

“The expected exposure in humans at a dose to be given, in comparison to the exposure at which certain effects were observed in animals or earlier in the study in humans, is considered more relevant than the relative dose levels between animals and humans,” claims the first-in-human (FIH) guidance.

EU GDP Guidelines: Implications for Shipping Clinical Materials into the European Market

Recently, the UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) opened an investigation into a patient complaint of mold on paracetamol (acetaminophen) tablets (1). It discovered the product was shipped by sea from India to multiple companies in the UK at temperatures reaching up to 60 degrees Celsius. Labeling for paracetamol tablets typically states they should be kept below 30 degrees Celsius. In addition, MHRA discovered the humidity levels exceeded 80 percent during shipping, which is too high for the packaging that was used.
