Chemistry, manufacturing, and controls (CMC) is an integral aspect of cell and gene therapy (CGT) development. CGT development presents unique CMC challenges because of inherent properties such as shorter shelf life, variability in starting and ancillary materials, manufacturing complexity, logistics and cost. FDA CGT information requests (IRs) often contain more CMC related inquiries than non-CGT products. In this webcast, experts from Cardinal Health Regulatory Sciences will discuss CMC challenges and potential mitigation strategies illustrated through multiple case studies.
