Relationship Between CMC and Clinical for Innovative IMPs

Relationship Between CMC and Clinical for Innovative IMPs
TOPRA's CMC SPIN is pleased to invite members to a webinar on the relationship between CMC and clinical for Innovative IMPs.

 Tuesday 13 June 2023
15:00–16:00 BST (GMT+1)/16:00–17:00 CEST

This session will discuss the importance of the CMC information and how the CMC information needs to be reflected "well" in several documents used in a clinical trial. 
The importance of well reflecting the CMC details in any clinical documents is true for small molecules, but even more for complex CMC development like for biological medicines e.g. the ATMP (Advance Therapy Medicinal Products) and Cell Gene Therapy studies area.

We will discuss the importance of an early and efficient connection between the clinical team and the CMC team. Thanks to this fruitful connection, the complete, accurate and current CMC details are included in the documents used and submitted for clinical trials e.g. in the US and EU. This will enable the complete review of the CMC information by the health authorities prior to the start of a clinical trial and ensure patient safety. The life cycle management of these clinical documents should reflect accurately all CMC changes.

Learning Objectives
1. Recognize the important connection between CMC information and clinical documents and process.
2. Understand the risks if there is non-compliance because CMC details are not well reflected in clinical documents and process.
