List Price: $745.00

Information regarding chemistry, manufacturing and controls (CMC) for drugs is an important and detailed section in a dossier to support clinical studies and marketing applications. This information must be updated as more information is gained throughout a drug’s lifecycle. The required content and format of the CMC section for various applications are described in guidance documents provided by the International Council on Harmonization (ICH) and individual regions where the product is intended to be marketed.

This course provides an overview of the CMC section of dossiers. It discusses the CMC information necessary to support original investigational applications; identifies CMC changes that require investigational application amendments; and provides an understanding of the CMC information needed to support marketing applications and postapproval submissions, including the use of Drug Master Files (DMFs) and CMC-specific guidances.

 The CMC section is synonymous with the quality section in some application formats, such as the Common Technical Document (CTD). For ease of review, this discussion is generically described as the CMC section.
