10 Dr. Pogány - WHO, Geneva 10/34 Videx EC 125mg, 200mg, 250mg and 400mg Gastro-resistant Capsules Children: Safety data for children were generally similar to those seen in adults. A higher haematotoxicity has been reported with the combination with zidovudine compared to didanosine monotherapy. Retinal or optic nerve changes have been reported in a small number of children usually at doses above those recommended. It is recommended that children on didanosine treatment undergo dilated retinal examination every 6 months or if a change in vision occurs.

25 POTENTIAL PAEDIATRIC APPLICATIONS Generic Antiretroviral Finished Pharmaceutical Products

26 Dr. Pogány - WHO, Geneva 26/34 Potential paediatric dosage forms for FDC-FPPs Powder for oral suspension (priority from pharmaceutical development and stability points of view) Film-coated tablets (priority from economic, pharmaceutical development and stability points of view) Powder for oral solution Chocolate pastilles (expensive and storage/bioavailability may be a problem in tropical climates and hot seasons)

27 Dr. Pogány - WHO, Geneva 27/34 ILLUSTRATIVE R+D ISSUES Key physicochemical characteristics (e.g., water content, solubility, particle size, etc.) of the APIs that can influence the performance of the FPP should be optimized and supported by experimental data. The compatibility of APIs with each other should be studied and the results documented. The compatibility of the APIs with excipients should be documented.

28 Dr. Pogány - WHO, Geneva 28/34 ILLUSTRATIVE R+D ISSUES A discriminating dissolution 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 programmes. Multipoint dissolution profiles of both the test and the reference FPPs should be compared.

29 Dr. Pogány - WHO, Geneva 29/34 HYPOTHETICAL DISSOLUTION PROFILE OF A 2-FDC FPP

30 EXISTING FDC-FPPs Bracketing and Matrixing Multiple strengths of identical or closely related formulations

31 Dr. Pogány - WHO, Geneva 31/34 BRACKETING Examples include but are not limited to 1.tablets of different strengths manufactured by compressing varying amounts of the same granulation, and 2.oral solutions/suspensions of different strengths with formulations that differ only in minor excipients (e.g., colourants, flavourings).

32 Dr. Pogány - WHO, Geneva 32/34 MATRIXING Examples include but are not limited to 1.tablets of different strengths manufactured by compressing varying amounts of the same granulation, and 2.oral solutions/suspensions of different strengths with formulations that differ only in minor excipients (e.g., colourants or flavourings).

33 Dr. Pogány - WHO, Geneva 33/34 SmPC and PIL The results from pharmacokinetic investigations must be described briefly in the SmPC of the FPP. The SmPC and package insert should be specific with regard to the HIVinfections which can be reasonably treated with the FPP.

34 Dr. Pogány - WHO, Geneva 34/34 CONCLUSIONS Safe and effective paediatric doses for FDC-FPPs, SmPCs and PILs should come from (literature survey of) clinical studies. Film-coated tablets and oral solutions or suspensions can be developed in about 18 months, if pre-formulation is started soon. Development can be accelerated if paediatric FDC- FPPs have the same ratio of APIs and compositions are essentially similar to those already registered in the ICH region or prequalified by WHO.
