IN-VITRO RELEASE TESTING (IVRT)
The J. Molner Company is performing IVRT studies for post-approval change management process for semisolid dosage forms. Thanks to the experience obtained we can successfully support development, validation, and comparative testing throughout product lifecycle - from development to approval and managing post-approval changes.
IN-VITRO RELEASE TESTING
An in vitro release test (IVRT) has become a valuable tool and in many instances a regulatory requirement to support the demonstration of bioequivalence for new generic, maintain product quality and for seeking approval of changes in already approved ANDAs.
Bioequivalence demonstration following Product Specific Guidances provides information the FDA expects to be submitted in an ANDA to support bioequivalence and often IVRT is included. It is also meaningful to provide IVRT comparison data between company’s own product and RLD/RS (reference listed drug/reference standard) in product development report even if it is not required in product-specific guidance to support the development outcome and increase FDA reviewer’s confidence in the submitted dossier.
SUPAC-SS FDA Guidance provides information for which changes in approved ANDAs IVRT test data should be submitted to FDA to provide evidence that product quality and bioavailability were not affected due to alterations in formulation, process, or manufacturing site.
