Introduction

The programme will cover the regulatory landscape and the definition and classification of ATMPs and provide practical guidance on how to overcome quality and specific GMP challenges. Comparison of the differences between GMP for ATMPs and conventional therapies will be discussed, as will the requirements for clinical trials and the preparation of the IMPD. Advice on the specific transportation requirements of these products will also be included.

This programme will be of benefit to all those involved with or considering developing an AMTP.

Benefits of attending:

  • Understand the GMP requirements for clinical trials in US and Europe
  • Gain a practical insight into other markets
  • Determine critical quality attributes
  • Develop a successful QC strategy
  • Examine the major differences between GMP for ATMPs and conventional therapies
  • Overcome potential pitfalls when manufacturing cells
  • Discuss multi-manufacturing sites for autologous products
  • Consider stability issues
  • Examine risk analysis for biological materials and understand Annex 16
  • Gain an introduction to GMO approval requirements

This seminar will be of benefit to all those involved with or considering developing an Advance Medicinal Therapeutic Product.

Who should attend?

  • R&D personnel involved in research on cell or gene-based therapies
  • Managers involved in the development and manufacture of ATMPs
  • Quality assurance and quality control personnel responsible for quality aspects of ATMPs
  • GMP managers responsible for implementing GMP in ATMP manufacture
  • Regulatory personnel involved in inspections of ATMPs
