The Flexible Factory Concept: A flexible bioprocessing platform to meet the changing needs of biomanufacturing

For the past several years, the biopharma industry has been buffeted by dynamic market conditions that are rapidly reshaping manufacturing requirements. These factors include:

• The rise of small-market pharmaceuticals that do not require the production scale of the previous “blockbuster” drug model

• Increased titers and process productivity that generate more bulk-product within a much smaller manufacturing footprint

• The emergence of biosimilars and continued evolution of healthcare reform, which will increasingly pressure drug pricing and require greater cost discipline

• Greater competition and shorter patent protection timelines, which will further ratchet up time-to-market pressures

• Tighter capital markets that will create heightened scrutiny for all new investment projects

Points to Consider When Developing a TMF (Trial Master File) Strategy

Phlexglobal Ltd

Many organizations are currently outsourcing clinical trial activities to one or more contract research organizations (CROs). This strategy enables companies to leverage specialized expertise and take advantage of flexible resourcing throughout the conduct of a clinical trial. Outsourcing minimizes the costs of recruiting experts, building a team and maintaining an infrastructure. However, it can also add complexity as the organization looks to meets its compliance obligations regarding clinical trial documentation. The documentation referred to in Article 15(5) of Directive 2001/20/EC as the trial master file shall consist of essential documents, which enable both the conduct of a clinical trial and the quality of the data produced to be evaluated.1 This essential study specific documentation is also known as the TMF. As organizations try to minimize their reliance on paper files, the electronic TMF (eTMF) has emerged. A current industry initiative to standardize the organization of this content is known as the TMF Reference Model. This model is helping standardization efforts across paper and electronic systems. As companies implement outsourcing strategies, CROs and sponsor organizations look for a common foundation on which to build their TMF capabilities. The following paper outlines some of the challenges organizations face when outsourcing clinical trial activities to multiple contract research organizations and a strategy to facilitate partnering and management of trial information between sponsors and CROs.
