The novelty and complexities of cell and gene therapy products combined with the lack of experience with such products can pose many challenges. Regulations for these products were established relatively recently, are still evolving, and often involve a complicated regulatory approval process. This presentation will discuss the requirements and challenges of Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Controls (CMC), Nonclinical and Clinical sections of an application for cell and gene therapy clinical trial, with a focus on FDA requirements for an Investigational New Drug (IND).

This event is brought to you by the RAPS Ontario Chapter to encourage knowledge sharing and community development. RAC holders may claim 1.0 RAC recertification credit.
