Review of Patient Pack Assembly

Producers of clinical supplies assemble patient packs by performing activities according to packaging instructions. Once an automated recipe management system is in place, where packaging instructions can be specified and execution can be electronically verified, providers of clinical supplies in the form of patient packs can concentrate on refining their processes. For packaging operations in some companies, it is required that each component be individually tracked and associated with a particular patient pack as early in the process as possible. Other organisations require that the source of each component is known, the contents of each patient pack be specified and traceable, but not that each component be known early in the process. This article is an evaluation of the implications of these two general approaches from several standpoints:

Work to properly account for each component as it goes into a patient pack
Ability to respond to requests for detailed information when an unblinding is required
Ability to handle assembly when product inventories are less than enough for a full packaging run

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.
