CMC SPIN Webinar: The Use of TiO2 in Medicines

CMC SPIN Webinar: The Use of TiO2 in Medicines
The TOPRA CMC SPIN Steering Group is proud to present this webinar on the use of TiO2 in medicines – panel discussion on evolving regulatory landscape.

Date: Tuesday 14 June 2022
Time: 13:00-14:00 BST (GMT +1)/14:00-15:00 CEST

The European Community recently banned the use of titanium dioxide (TiO2) in foods and has indicated that the pharmaceutical industry should be making efforts to eliminate TiO2 from medicines over the next 2-3 years. TiO2 is used as a colorant, opacifier, blinding agent and light-protective agent in many oral dosage forms.  Given that TiO2 has been used in foods and medicines for over fifty years without significant safety issues, this ruling was a surprise to many.

Please join the TOPRA CMC spin in a panel discussion and Q&A session on technical and regulatory CMC implications.

Introduction to the topic – 20 min
Panel discussion & Q&A  – 40 min
Dr Meike Vanhooren (Senior Director, Pfizer)
