17/09/2024TOPRA in Sweden: Combination ProductsDevelopment of combination products or when drugs and medical devices and/or in vitro medical devices are combined, have its own special challenges. An EU common regulation 536/2014 (also called Clinical Trials Regulation, CTR) applies to clinical trials of medicinal products for humans. A single application for the drug is sent to an EU-wide web portal and database (CTIS) and results, after an EU-wide investigation process, in a national decision. For a combined clinical investigation, the medical device or in vitro medical device must be applied for and approved nationally using different processes in different EU countries. We will hear how different combination products are handled to regulatory approval, about COMBINE, a project to facilitate combined studies, about what rules and guidelines exist and practical experiences. We also get to hear some news about TOPRA. You get the opportunity to meet colleagues in a relaxed and pleasant environment. The meeting is open to anyone who works with and is interested in regulatory affairs.LundSwedenSWESEP24
