Biologic & Biosimilar Regulation and Registration course is structured as follows:
- Biotech Drug Development Process
Overview of the development of a biotech product – clarify the difference between synthetic drugs, biologics and biotech products .
- Biotech Regulation – Key Understanding
US drugs vs. Biologics Law: Understand the differences in regulatory philosophy between small molecules and biotech product regulation
- Preclinical and Clinical Research Design
An examination of preclinical and clinical research designs. Emphasis is on identifying and addressing challenges associated with elements of good laboratory and clinical practice and qualifying and managing a laboratory for a clinical trial. Discussion covers best practices for planning research and collecting, analyzing, and reporting data from drug/device development studies.
- Analytical techniques for the Biotech Drugs
Understand the need for using a range of analytical methods in the characterization of biotech product.
- Product Life Cycle Approval, Production, and Marketing for Bio-pharmaceuticals
An in-depth study of the product life cycle for biopharmaceuticals. Focus is on the various stages within the life cycle from conceptualization of a product pipeline in research and development through postmarket surveillance and production. Topics include regulatory submission, approval, production, and the postmarket environment for both drugs and devices. Challenges surrounding the approval and naming of follow-on biologics are addressed. Discussion also covers combination medicines, the stages of a drug pipeline and risk assessment at each stage, and the decreasing productivity of the drug pipeline. The role of a contract research organization in testing and approval is explained, and the nature of the support services they provide to the biotechnology and devices industry is explored.
- Global Biotechnology Business
Topics include international biotechnology issues, global harmonization efforts, and the cultural impact of biotechnologies. Discussion also covers domestic and International business considerations and international regulatory requirements.
