March 4, 2020 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 4, 2020--

The “Development of Combination Products: Critical Interactions” conference has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Linking the technical requirements of device design and pharmaceutical product development. Using QbD to deliver drug/device combinations.

Drug/device and device/drug combination products are becoming increasingly important in the medical industry. The development and manufacture of these products raises a number of complex issues and the quality and regulatory aspects are challenging. This interactive seminar will clarify the EU and US approach to drug/device and device/drug combination products, address the requirements for the device technical file/design file, explain the biological and synthetic drug regulations and look at the registration procedures for these products.

The programme will cover the regulatory strategy to adopt and the relevant aspects of GMP and quality processes, including the data expectations for the CTD. It will also review the key relationships between quality, regulatory, R&D and production. Delegates will find this a comprehensive overview of the requirements for these products and will have an opportunity to discuss the complexities with an expert in this field.
