International Clinical Trials

Quality Upkeep

To ensure a smooth transition from the pre-authorisation to the post-authorisation phase of the lifecycle of a medicinal product, the marketing authorisation (MA) applicant is responsible for ensuring a robust pharmacovigilance (PV) system is in place to monitor patient safety once the product is on the market. During clinical trials, patient exposure is limited and closely monitored, and very specific criteria must be met for patients who are eligible to take part in the study. However, once the product is on the market and more widely available, patient exposure will be much more widespread and patients may experience adverse reactions (ARs) that have not been observed previously in a clinical trial setting.

To maintain compliance with EU post-marketing regulatory requirements, the MA holder (MAH) must ensure that the following are in place:

• PV systems (including appropriate technology, quality management system, and PV processes)
• Qualified Person for PV (QPPV) and deputy and local safety-responsible representatives (where required under national legislation)
• PV system master file (PSMF)
• Risk management and minimisation systems
• Signal management • Global literature search strategy
• EudraVigilance (EV) maintenance, including Article 57 database

Cleaning Validation: What do you need to consider to ensure a successful outcome?

RSSL

Cross contamination must be avoided in the Pharmaceutical industry at all costs and successful cleaning validation ensures that patients are not put at risk due to cross contamination. The process can be divided into a number of sections each of which must be fully understood and areas of concern addressed to ensure a successful outcome across the entire process. This spans both the manufacturing and subsequent analytical and microbological support. The data used to confirm a positive/successful cleaning validation is underpinned by the results of validated analytical methods. It is essential that these results are truly representative as patient safety is based upon the absence of equipment residues. So what are those areas of concern, what affects your ability to get a successful outcome and what do you need to consider when carrying out a Cleaning Validation exercise?
