Event Title: GCPseminars Workshop on Mastering Biofilm Control, Monitoring, Validation and Excursion Investigations of Pharmaceutical Water Systems
Event Date or Start Date: 3/2/2015
End Date: 3/3/2015
Country: UNITED STATES
State or Region: CA
Meeting Website: View more information
Additional Meeting Information: This course is designed to provide a microbiology-focused education about all aspects of water systems and how biofilm manages to thrive there. Prior microbiological education or training, though a plus, is not necessary. The instructor can provide the background needed to understand this very important subject matter. This understanding is essential to the proper design, validation, operation, monitoring, and maintenance of a high purity water system. Without this understanding, water system design and control are merely managed by a set of rules that often don''t work and can cause very costly system downtime or even product recalls.

Why should you attend:

(Fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) liner for the marketing purpose)- Are you having persistent water system problems—nothing you do seems to help for very long if at all? Are your water systems excursion investigations always inconclusive because you can never confirm the original out-of-limit result and the bad results come and go? Are you concerned that FDA will not think your water system validation was not stringent enough because of your current microbial problems? Are you afraid that biofilm has taken over and you can’t get rid of it?

    Meeting Website: View more information
    Additional Meeting Information: With this seminar you will learn how to navigate US FDA’s legal requirements and its interpretations for enforcement purposes.

    The agency now applies the principles of cognitive psychology to aid in its determination of what a message really conveys. This becomes a new factor in trying to stay within FDA’s legal corral.

    This conference will provide insight on how to manage your marketing activity and gauge what regulatory risks your business is willing to accept. You will learn how corporate management requires cooperation between marketing, regulatory affairs, legal counsel, manufacturing, engineering and finance departments. You will understand that a weak link in any department leaves the entire corporation vulnerable to US FDA enforcement. Most importantly, you will understand the boundaries that the US FDA uses and how easy it is to cross them. With information from this course, you can step back and rationally evaluate your firm’s regulatory profile for advertising and promotion.

    Additional Meeting Information: Drug development is the process of incorporating data from multiple disciplines into a logical and coherent argument for the efficacy and safety of a drug product resulting in regulatory approval.

    The course will focus on the clinical aspect.

    The primary goal of the course will provide students with the basic principles and process for taking a chemical and developing it into a drug product. Medical, pharmaceutical, pharmacokinetics, and statistical principles will be reviewed and utilized in the course. Examples will be provided by my experience, experiences in the literature, and approvals from the US Food and Drug Administration website.

    The outline for the class will include organization of a pharmaceutical company including preclinical, pharmaceutical development, clinical pharmacology, clinical, and regulatory. Several therapeutic areas will be used in examples. The valuable use of teams will be described by membership and responsibilities. Interactions with different drug company teams will be examined along with interaction with FDA teams.

    The stages of development (Phases 1–4) along with formal meetings with the US FDA along with important regulatory submissions (IND, Phase I, II, III, NDA) will be described and discussed.

    Importance of regulatory interaction will be described and discussed along with strategies for providing a successful outcome for both parties. While dynamic tension between the regulatory authority and the pharmaceutical company will occur, it can be used to provide the energy for generating a successful outcome. While the company develops the clinical strategy, the US FDA often provides changes that improve it. Reviews of real life drugs will be used as examples along with developing the prescribing information. Pharmacokinetic approaches will be described without the need for understanding the math. The use of pharmacokinetic information will be described.

    Additional Meeting Information: News from the Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT) Workshop on Systematic Review: What is Systematic Review? An Introductory Course Organized by CAAT, FDA, NIEHS, NIH, and EPA March 9, 2015 • 9am-12:30pm College Park, Maryland Systematic review and related evidence-based approaches are beginning to be translated from healthcare to toxicology. They provide transparent, objective, and consistent tools to identify, select, appraise, and extract evidence across studies. Systematic review methodologies provide objectivity and transparency to the process of collecting and synthesizing scientific evidence in reaching conclusions on specific research questions. Procedures are explicitly defined in advance, in order to ensure that the exercise is transparent and can be replicated. This practice is also designed to minimize bias. Systematic review procedures are being adopted by other federal agencies, including US EPA and NIEHS.

    Studies included in a systematic review are screened for quality, so that the findings of a large number of studies can be combined.

    Additional Meeting Information: Throughout 21 CFR and guidance documents for the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and medical device industries, the application of statistical methods are specified for: setting validation criteria and specifications, performing measurement systems analysis (MSA), conducting stability analysis, using design of experiment (DOE) for process development and validation, developing process control charts, and determining process capability indices.

    Different statistical methods are required for each of these particular applications. Data and tolerance intervals are common tools used for setting acceptance criteria and specifications. Simple linear regression and analysis-of-covariance (ANCOVA) are used for setting expiries and conducting stability analysis studies. Two-sample hypothesis tests, analysis-of-variance (ANOVA), regression, and ANCOVA are methods used for analyzing designed experiment for process development and validation studies. Descriptive statistics (distribution, summary statistics), run charts, and probability (distributions) are used for developing process control charts and developing process capability indices.

    This course provides instruction on how to apply the appropriate statistical approaches: descriptive statistics, data intervals, hypothesis testing, ANOVA, regression, ANCOVA, and model building. Once competence in each of these areas is established, industry-specific applications will be presented for the participants.

    Meeting Website: View more information
    Additional Meeting Information: This course is designed to provide a microbiology-focused education about all aspects of water systems and how biofilm manages to thrive there. Prior microbiological education or training, though a plus, is not necessary. The instructor can provide the background needed to understand this very important subject matter. This understanding is essential to the proper design, validation, operation, monitoring, and maintenance of a high purity water system. Without this understanding, water system design and control are merely managed by a set of rules that often don''t work and can cause very costly system downtime or even product recalls.

    Why should you attend:

    (Fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) liner for the marketing purpose)—Are you having persistent water system problems—nothing you do seems to help for very long if at all? Are your water systems excursion investigations always inconclusive because you can never confirm the original out-of-limit result and the bad results come and go? Are you concerned that FDA will not think your water system validation was not stringent enough because of your current microbial problems? Are you afraid that biofilm has taken over and you can''t get rid of it?

    These are common concerns that primarily originate out of ignorance of appropriate design, maintenance, sanitization, sampling, and testing for your water system. Attending this two-day course will open your eyes to what is really going on in your water system.

    Meeting Website: View more information
    Additional Meeting Information: The focus of this colloquium is on the methods used in safety assessment of substances present in foods that may target the immune system. The immune system is a complex set of cellular, chemical, and soluble mediators that protects the body against foreign substances. Immunotoxicology is the subdiscipline of toxicology that focuses on unintended modulation of the immune system following exposure to environmental chemicals or therapeutics. Adverse effects may include immunosuppression, immunostimulation, allergic hypersensitivity, or autoimmunity, and may result in outcomes such as increased incidences of infectious diseases or neoplastic diseases, allergy/asthma, or autoimmune diseases, respectively. The majority of immunotoxicity testing efforts to date have focused on the potential for xenobiotics to suppress immune function or induce dermal sensitization. With the increased use and development of immune-based or immune-targeted therapeutic proteins, unintended stimulation of the immune system has also become an area of concern. The colloquium will begin with a brief overview of the cells and soluble mediators critical to immune function and the tiered testing strategies used to identify substances that may target immune effectors. Following this introduction, experts will provide a state of the art review of methodological approaches using case studies to elucidate how immunotoxicology data can be used in assessing the safety of ingested materials.

    Additional Meeting Information: Diversity is increasing in the biological targets, pharmacological strategies, and types of chemistry being investigated in first time in human (FTIH) studies; similarly, there is growing information, guidance, and experience to protect volunteer/patient safety. In response, regulatory toxicology strategies have diversified and evolved from those practiced only a decade ago reflecting advances in science and technology and the experiences of individuals and organizations. These webinars will address how we understand and work with this diversity both now and in the future to bring important new (and safer) medicines to patients.

    These webinars will focus on four key areas: small molecules, traditional biologics, innovative biologics, and nucleotide constructs. For each of these we will address the relevant aspects of science and technology, strategic and tactical issues (study design, species selection, target organ toxicity profiles), and regulatory guidance relevant to safety assessment, including approaches in rare diseases. There will also be a future focus as we consider new directions in the field, including reducing or moving away from animal testing. These webinars will be of broad interest to academic, industry, regulatory, and consultant toxicologists who wish to be updated in this critical and evolving area.

    Additional Meeting Information: The early phases of a clinical trial are the most crucial. This is where the potential of a drug is evaluated and applied to the treatment at stake. However, they are also the most expensive and regulated portions of a trial. It can cost up to two billion dollars just to complete these early phases of a clinical trial, and sometimes, they are even bypassed. If this does not occur, and a drug does go through Phase I and Phase IIA, corners can be proactively cut in order to decrease costs, meet regulatory requirements and ensure efficacy.

    The 2nd Clinical Trials Phase I and Phase IIA Summit will explore paramount strategies behind increasing efficiency in early phase clinical trials. As the early clinical development space is continuously evolving, this must-attend event will feature countless case studies and networking opportunities to address current challenges. In addition to hearing about pharmacokinetic, pharmacogenomic and pharmacovigilant methodologies, this conference will provide the audience with the opportunity to hear from top industry thought leaders in regards to driving success into their clinical trials.

    Additional Meeting Information: Diversity is increasing in the biological targets, pharmacological strategies, and types of chemistry being investigated in first time in human (FTIH) studies; similarly, there is growing information, guidance, and experience to protect volunteer/patient safety. In response, regulatory toxicology strategies have diversified and evolved from those practiced only a decade ago reflecting advances in science and technology and the experiences of individuals and organizations. These webinars will address how we understand and work with this diversity both now and in the future to bring important new (and safer) medicines to patients.

    These webinars will focus on four key areas: small molecules, traditional biologics, innovative biologics, and nucleotide constructs. For each of these we will address the relevant aspects of science and technology, strategic and tactical issues (study design, species selection, target organ toxicity profiles), and regulatory guidance relevant to safety assessment, including approaches in rare diseases. There will also be a future focus as we consider new directions in the field, including reducing or moving away from animal testing. These webinars will be of broad interest to academic, industry, regulatory, and consultant toxicologists who wish to be updated in this critical and evolving area.

    Additional Meeting Information: Developers of both small- and large-molecule therapeutics urgently need to overcome drug formulation and delivery challenges in order to improve bioavailability and therapeutic performance. Small molecule drugs are challenged by poor solubility, and while enabled formulations can help with this, they often encounter stability hurdles of their own. Intravenous delivery of biologics sets limits on patient adherence and market success, so the next generation of delivery challenges will focus on subcutaneous and oral routes to broaden product pipelines and lengthen life cycles.

    The 3rd annual Innovations in Drug Formulation and Delivery conference features never-before-heard case studies focusing on the industry''s most urgent needs for improving solubility and therapeutic performance!

    Country: UNITED STATES
    State or Region: CO
    Meeting Website: View more information
    Additional Meeting Information: Come to Fort Collins, Colorado to learn about physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling at a very basic level. The ultimate goal is that, at the end of the Workshop, participants can do their own PBPK modeling work using their own software and computers.

    For those of you whose primary interest is to understand application of PBPK modeling to risk assessment rather than to become PBPK modelers, this this workshop will provide line-by-line detailed explanation and instruction of the code, as well as hands-on exercises, which will tremendously enhance your appreciation of PBPK modeling and your risk assessment capability.

    Most of the lectures will be integrated with hands-on computer simulation exercises. The exercises will illustrate different modeling techniques.

    Participants needs only beginning background in calculus. Although biology and toxicology are the “drivers,” participants are expected to have more thorough and advanced understanding in biology and toxicology. However, principles and concepts in mathematics, chemical engineering, biology, chemistry, toxicology, etc., will be conveyed slowly and clearly with plain English to achieve the learning objectives.

    This Workshop will be beneficial not only for aspiring PBPK modelers, but also for toxicologists/pharmacologists interested in quantitative knowledge in toxicology/pharmacology for Risk Assessment/Safety Evaluation. If interested, please go to the Online Registration Site and register ASAP to ensure a spot.

    Additional Meeting Information: The 21st Century vision and strategy for assessing toxicity (TT21C science or Tox21 hereafter) was developed with the intent to increase throughput, decrease cost, and optimize chemical data collection for increased utility and relevance to inform chemical safety decision-making. Central to this strategy is the ability to predict human health risks from emerging ‘‘big data” and novel in vitro data collections using in silico models for exposure and hazard assessment. Automated high-throughput screening (HTS) and high-content screening (HCS) of large chemical inventories, together with newer complex culture models utilizing human cells, microtissue systems, and integrative models, are now providing vast amounts of data that can be used to inform regulatory toxicity testing. These methods, together with novel approaches to model exposure and kinetics, creates an opportunity for a paradigm shift toward diversified and high-throughput risk assessment (HTRA) approaches for regulatory decision-making. Overall, the approach results in more rapid, more relevant, and more nimble discovery-screening and prioritization efforts with less reliance on animal testing. The time is right to discuss and debate how TT21C science, approaches, and technologies will be applied in risk assessment and regulatory decision-making.
