Microneedle & Transdermal Delivery
ValSource consultants have expertise to help navigate the complex regulatory environment for microbiological control of microneedles and other novel transdermal products.
For efficient product development, controls must be established early as they are critical to the timely and successful navigation of the CGMP pipeline. Our experts have been directly involved in the approval of Phase 1-3 products and have held esteemed positions as microbiology experts in the US FDA Transdermal Working Group. From pre-IND stages through commercialization, ValSource is able to help.
An Emerging Field
Microneedles and other novel approaches to drug delivery without the use of traditional parenteral applications are an exciting area of development. The public health implications and patient satisfaction advantages will result in a remodeling of the current drug manufacturing and drug delivery paradigms. While significant progress has been made on the development of these products, there are still regulatory and product development challenges that must be addressed for a successful marketing authorization application.
ValSource consultants have more than 40 years of combined experience in US FDA CGMPs for sterile and nonsterile pharmaceutical products including CDER, CBER, CDRH and combination products. Our experts have extensive experience both reviewing and approving Phase 1-3 novel transdermal products. Our consultants reviewed the very first submission for marketing approval of a microneedle product to CDER (recommended approval for microbiological controls). Our team was also responsible for establishing the microbiological standards for these (and other) paradigm shifting pharmaceutical products.
