 Temperature Excursion and Cycling Studies webinar

Temperature Excursion and Cycling Studies

Temperature excursions during shipment can cause the recall of drug product lots, leading to delays in supply and loss of revenue. Data from a well-conducted temperature excursion and/or cycling study can be used to justify such excursions. There is currently no harmonised guidance dealing with the impact of temperature excursions during distribution or the effect of freeze/thaw cycles on liquids and semi-solids. This webinar reviews best practice in these areas.

This webinar will cover:

  • Overview of regulatory guidance
  • Temperature excursion risks to physical and chemical product stability
  • Evaluating possible excursions using supply chain knowledge
  • Temperature excursion studies
  • Thermal cycling studies
  • Transportation control strategy

  • Biopharmaceutical Stability Studies: Stability is a particular problem for biopharmaceutical products because the physical and chemical stability of peptides and proteins are often very sensitive to storage and transportation conditions. The purpose of this webinar is to explain the typical approach for the design of a stability study for biologics. The webinar also covers the specific challenges of these product types as well as typical degradation mechanisms.
  • Stability Study Design – Bracketing and Matrixing: Stability programmes are a costly undertaking, especially for products that have multiple strengths and packaging configurations, where a full study design will require every configuration to be evaluated for three registration batches at each time point. The use of reduced study designs such as bracketing and matrixing can reduce the cost of formal stability studies. This webinar describes when the use of such approaches is allowable, together with their associated benefits and risks.
