The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is constantly adjusting its regulations, annexes, and guidances in responses to the needs of the industry, and the last 12 months have been no different. During this period they have issued a total of three revisions to established annexes and also issued a brand new guidance document in the GMP world. This article will focus on these four documents and describe what has changed and what it means to pharmaceutical companies.
The drug-device combination product market is growing at a rapid pace. By 2019 it is expected that the global market for drug device combination products will reach $115.1 billion. This is nearly double its worth from $66 billion back in 2012. This burgeoning market will likely bring in a flood of product submission applications to the FDA at a time when resources are already strained.
When your warehouse stores temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals and life science products, a top of the line HVAC system with carefully placed thermostats is not enough to ensure product quality and consumer safety. Why? It is the nature of warehouse facilities, no matter the size, to experience temperature gradients.
While the development of a combination product comes with significant patient benefits through technology and molecule innovation, that reward can be offset by the range of regulatory complexity and uncertainty encountered with bringing a product to market, in addition to any post-marketing activities.
A facility monitoring system (FMS) is a process monitoring tool that collects data from sensors such as optical particle counters, differential pressure sensors, and temperature probes in realtime. Acronyms are independent monitoring system (IMS) or environmental monitoring system (EMS). Software presents that data as information; real-time alarms notify facility operators of alert limits to enable an immediate response to an unwanted event or excursion. Reports and trend graphs can be produced.
Today’s Africa has increasingly become a source of fascination for pharmaceutical researchers drawn to the study and control of both communicable diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS as well as diseases of the developed world like cancer, diabetes, hypertension and chronic respiratory disease.

This webinar discusses how achieving accurate demand forecasts is extremely challenging, especially for new drug launches, and what other pharmaceutical companies are doing to overcome those challenges.
In this webinar we will share best practices that demonstrate how to connect directly to data sources in the production lines, record and then store the data in secure databases.
Join Vaisala Regulatory Expert Piritta Maunu as she discusses methods of stability testing in drug production and how they relate to monitoring.
Why and how Multivariate analysis and Design of Experiments can make the difference in process automation and quality improvements cases.
