English Pharmaceutical Process Development Factors in Scale-Up, Process Validation and Regulatory Considerations This three-day course is designed to provide a basic understanding of the significant process development effort involved in taking an R&D laboratory formulation to commercial production. This course will focus on two main areas: How to develop a pilot process suitable for scale-up to commercial production. Factors to consider during scale-up and technology transfer to take a product from formulation development to the production floor. The course will review topics such as process flow and equipment selection. Regulatory considerations, such as documentation and a need for pilot scale products to be representative of commercial production will be discussed. Various technologies available for manufacturing dosage forms will be reviewed in the context of scale-up parameters. These will include processing methods for mixing, granulation, compression and coating of solid dosage forms, as well as processing methods for solutions, emulsions, suspensions and sterile parenteral products. Who Should Attend This course is intended for personnel in process development, technical service and pilot plant groups within the pharmaceutical industry. This includes personnel responsible for manufacturing of dosage forms for clinical studies. It will also be of value to personnel in: Research & Development Analytical Services Product Development Manufacturing Production Quality Assurance Regulatory Affairs CMC Projects The course is not designed to provide an in-depth review of science and technology of any specific process technology. Other courses offered by CfPA should be considered for that purpose. Learning Objectives Upon completion of this course, you will be able to: Determine the critical project management and regulatory issues to be considered for process development of dosage forms such as tablets, capsules, liquid orals, parenterals, scale-up of the process to manufacturing scale and transfer of technology from R&D to production Assess the associated regulatory issues, equipment selection, cost considerations, and critical need for coordination between R&D, Process Development, Production and Quality Assurance groups in the successful process development of drug dosage forms Course Description First Day Review of Learning Objectives Process Development, Key Issues and Concepts Technical & Regulatory Considerations Project Management & Coordination Factors to Consider in Process Development and Scale-up Quality by Design (QbD Concepts) Case Study Solid Dosage Forms-Mixing, Granulation Equipment Selection In-process Tests Solid Dosage Forms-Compression, Encapsulation, Coating In-process Tests Critical Process Attributes Second Day Liquids, Emulsions and Suspensions Disperse System Technology Milling and Mixing Equipment Critical Product & Process Parameters Equipment Selection Parenteral Dosage Forms Small Volume Parenterals Scale-Up Development of Sterilization Processes Lyophilization Scale-up Considerations Equipment Selection Sterile Validation Pre Approval Inspection Preparation Audits Inspections Evening Session-Review and Discussion with Faculty Participant Questions, Problems and Issues in Pharmaceutical Technology Third Day Clinical Supply Manufacturing Scale-up Considerations GMP Requirements Critical/Non-Critical Changes Process Validation Planning, Coordination, Regulatory Guidelines, Documentation Overview and Management of Product Process Validation Case Study Technology Transfer to Production Documentation Package Equipment Selection Process Analytical Technology (PAT) Assessment Opportunity Course Directors Mike Yelvigi is founder & principal at Center for Pharmaceutical Integration LLC, which provides consultation service to the industry in the area of CMC support &Technology Integration and Transfers (mergers & acquisitions).
