PROSPECTIVE VALIDATION Pharmaceutical Development Laboratory scale R + D
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 6/59 Physicochemical and physical properties of API Physicochemical hygroscopicity solubility water content polymorphism permeability Physical particle size bulk density (g/100ml) flowability color, olor, taste consistency
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 7/59 Equilibrium Moisture Content At relative humidities (RHs) <100%, a solid API (that does not form crystalline compounds with water) will loose some bound and all its unbound water until it is in equilibrium with the surrounding atmosphere. The sum of both these moistures is the free moisture of the API (granules) at the specified RH.
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 8/59 Rate of Water Absorption at Different RHs
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 9/59 Solubility of Zidovudine at 25 o C pHDissolved material (mg/ml) Distilled water

Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 11/59 Decomposition of Artesunate in aqueous solution SolventTime (h)Decomposition (%) Water20 0.1N HCl N NaOH2100
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 12/59 Relationship between Permeability Coefficient and Octanol-Water Partition 1 Prednisolone... 3 Dexamethazone... 9 Dexamethazone-acetate Progesterone
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 13/59 NORVIR (Ritonavir) EPAR/CPMP /527/96 1.No polymorphism observed at the time of first submission (only form I : hard capsules and oral solution registered) 2.Failure in dissolution during stability studies for hard capsules 3.Emergence of form II (contamination of form I) 4.Production of hard capsules discontinued 5.Development and registration of soft capsules
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 14/59 Particle Size When the solubility of an API is less than 0.1 mg/ml, the optimization of the particle size during preformulation may be critical to efficacy or pharmaceutical equivalence. Other researchers believe that particle size may be critical at a solubility of 1 mg/ml or less.
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 15/59 Effect of Particle Size on Dissolution of Nevirapine tablets
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 16/59 Screening of Compositions Compatibility of an API with the excipients and the APIs with each other in FDCs is studied in open system stress stability experiments, e.g., o C, 100% RH. Regulatory stability studies of the final composition are frequently initiated in the pharmaceutical R + D laboratory.
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 17/59 Compatibility of Acetylsalicylic Acid with Excipients Time (week)Talc ATalc B Salicylic acid, %
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 18/59 Triomune - WHOPAR Experimental „studies showed chemical incompatibility for the lamivudine with stavudine and nevirapine with stavudine combination. Lamivudine with nevirapine showed no change indicating that they are compatible. Stavudine was found incompatible with both the drugs, indicated by the brown colouration and increase in the impurities. Therefore it was decided to separate stavudine from the other two drugs. Hence the formulation was proposed to be bilayered tablet formulation, where stavudine is in one layer and lamivudine + nevirapine in other layer. Thus contact of stavudine with the other two drugs was minimised.”
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 19/59 Dissolution Test and Profile A (discriminating) dissolution test method should be developed for the final composition of the FPP. Limits should be set for each API in fixed-dose FPPs. The dissolution method should be incorporated into the stability and quality control programs. Multipoint dissolution profiles of both the test and the reference FPPs should be compared.

Results from comparative in vitro studies (e.g., dissolution) or comparative in vivo studies (e.g., bioequivalence) should be discussed when appropriate.

Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 30/ Scientific approach „Processes and procedures should be established on the basis of the results of the validation performed.” Objectives To prove that the tests, measurements, results and interpretation of formal studies on (manufacturing) processes and procedures/methods are appropriate and accurate. To stabilize new processes (to reduce variability, to increase batch to batch consistency of quality attributes of products). To reduce defect levels (standardize yields). To reduce production costs.

Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 50/ Scientific approach Processes and procedures should be established on the basis of the results of the validation performed.
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 51/59 Commitment (validation) batches Process validation reports should be submitted in the application for prequalification. Formal studies of production scale batches (not less than three) are required to identify the critical variables. Provisional equipment control parameters and the corresponding in-process acceptance criteria must be deduced from the results of experiments with the validation batches. Critical parameters are to be monitored, non-critical ones should be tested occasionally.
RETROSPECTIVE VALIDATION Annual Product Review
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 53/59 Annual FPP quality review (1) Starting materials used in the product, especially those from new sources. Critical in-process controls and finished product results. All batches that failed to meet established specification(s). All critical deviations or non-conformances and related investigations. All changes carried out to the processes or analytical methods. Marketing Authorisation variations submitted, or granted, or refused, including those for third country dossiers.
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 54/59 Annual FPP quality review (2) Results of the stability monitoring programme. All quality-related returns, complaints and recalls, including export only medicinal products. Adequacy of previous corrective actions. For new marketing authorisations, a review of post- marketing commitments. A list of validated procedures and their revalidation dates. A list of qualified equipment, support utility systems and their requalification dates, including calibration programmes.

Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 56/59 Case summary of 20 batches (2) 1.Acceptance criteria for assay and dissolution rate are loose and should be tightened. 2.Potentially critical impurities are not tested. 3.IPC data are not included in the retrospective analysis of batch records.
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 57/59 BEST PROCESS MINIMUM REQUIRED INPUT MAXIMUM OUTPUT AT NO COST TO SOCIETY (industrial safety, labour safety, internal and external environment protection)
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 58/59 COSTS OF QUALITY Visible costs, e.g., waste and returned goods Hidden costs, e.g., wrong decisions, non-competitive manufacturing process, low yield, maintenance, idle machine time, workers attitude, etc.
Dr. Pogány - WHO, Pretoria 59/59 Main points again Manufacturing methods are the same in the innovative and generic industries. Pharmaceutical development is a major source of early identification of critical product and process parameters. Validation batches should be tested extensively to establish preliminary/tentative IPC parameters. Annual product review results in continuous improvement of products and processes.
