New White Paper Examines Clinical Trial Material Production & Testing: What Your Contract Manufacturing Organization is Not Telling You
Date:8/24/2011

AGAWAM, Mass., Aug. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- For pharmaceutical manufacturers, delays in starting a clinical trial program due to issues involving the manufacture of clinical trial material (CTM) and the associated fill/finish and release work can make even the most dogged project managers wince in pain. A new, free white paper recommends a proven process of evaluating a cGMP contract manufacturing organization (CMO) to deliver all the required processes needed to release CTM for clinical trial use.

The new white paper, "Clinical Trial Material Production and Testing: Is Your CMO Providing Everything You Need," explores what pharmaceutical manufacturers must require from a CMO in terms of capabilities and expertise and the critical roles that the contractor must be able to assume in the clinical trial material manufacturing process.

The white paper is available for download from: http://www.microtestlabs.com/clinical-trial-material-production-testing-paper/.

"In order to keep clinical protocols on time and on budget in the CTM manufacturing process, it's critical that the selected CMO has comprehensive capabilities that are both in-house and readily available," notes Alexander Mello, author of the white paper and Director of Project Management, Manufacturing, for Microtest Laboratories, a leader in contract manufacturing, aseptic processing and full service pharmaceutical testing.

"Contracting with a CMO without complete in-house expertise will add unnecessary time to the CTM process. In these cases, performing a GMP audit of the CMO, plus all of the other companies (formulators, laboratories, labelers, etc.) that the CMO uses in the supply chain, will add significantly to the overall cost and time for the technical transfer of the product," he explains.

The new white paper illustrates how the proper selection of a CMO can help meet product schedules and minimize potential restart activities. The paper reviews the roles that the CMO must be able to play in CTM process, from first steps through the completion, and details the key areas of Raw Materials, Formulation, and Final Drug Product (FDP).

The white paper also discusses how a fully-capable CMO will have the ability to perform all the required processes in CTM – including excipient and API release for GMP manufacture, formulation, in-process testing, environmental monitoring, filter integrity testing, and final release testing.

Mello, the author of the white paper, is Director of Project Management, Manufacturing, for Microtest Laboratories. Mello's 15 years of experience span Aseptic Fill/Finish, Microbiology, Method Transfer, Stability of Drug Product, Medical Devices/Combo Devices, and Sterilization Sciences. He holds a graduate degree in Biological Sciences and is a Specialist Microbiologist (NRM).
