  • Nanoparticle Drug Delivery Systems: Trends and Challenges to Routine and "Appropriate" Nanomaterial Characterization

    • Fred Klaessig  |  Manager, Pennsylvania Bio Nano Systems, LLC
    Location:  113AB
    Vault Recording: TBD

    The number of nanoparticle/nanomaterial based drug product submissions has been steadily increasing and is matched by an evolution in the FDA's questions and understanding of these complex materials. Physico-chemical characterization is becoming prominent in linking the drug formulation both to its safety & efficacy results as well as to the critical quality attributes that will be controlled during manufacture or used in specifying ingredients. There is a similar realization in chemical registration that a fuller understanding of nanoparticle toxicity requires aligning modifications to harmonized OECD test guidelines to those physico-chemical attributes that influence the mode of action. In both cases, additional characterization parameters and new test methods, abiotic and biological, are likely.
