Leveraging Process Analytical Technology for CMC

 

Introduction

 

In the evolving field of pharmaceutical development, the implementation of Process Analytical Technology (PAT) for manufacturing is an essential competitive advantage. PAT offers widely accepted methods to safeguard quality assurance and the general safety of pharmaceutical products. The goal of this article is to provide a summary of PAT, best practices of principles and adoption of PAT, and how to leverage increased process knowledge in your regulatory submission.

 

Understanding Process Analytical Technology (PAT)

 

Efficient pharmaceutical manufacturing is a significant facet of the global healthcare system. The well-being of patients is contingent on the accessibility of safe and effective treatments. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) framework for process analytical technology was originally established based on insights to facilitate quality improvement. It includes risk-based regulatory outcomes that have been validated by both life science manufacturers and FDA regulators.

 

The Agency framework is based on two primary drivers:

 

  • Scientific principles and tools that support the development of innovation
  • Regulatory strategies that accommodate innovation during the submission process

 

Principles of Process Analytical Technology

 

CMC (Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Controls) is one of the most influential facets of drug product development. Traditional drug development in pharmaceutical manufacturing is completed using batch processing and production sample lab testing to evaluate quality. This approach has been effective in delivering quality pharmaceuticals to patients in need.

 

However, modern technologies now offer life science employees the opportunity for improving pharmaceutical development. Specifically, PAT principles and technologies focus on increasing quality assurance during the product development process. This often involves the use of unique quality controls from different types of technologies.

 

Process Analytical Technology and CMC

 

The implementation of process analytical technology encourages drug manufacturers to create a team-based regulatory approach to chemistry, manufacturing and controls. Further, the review of current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) is also essential to the success of process analytical technology.

 

Finally, in-depth CMC training is important to achieve certification in process analytical technology. This is important considering the regulatory inspection review by Agency auditors for each new drug in development. The ability to demonstrate regulatory compliance is a foundational training strategy that supports the use of process analytical technology in manufacturing.

 

Implementing Process Analytical Technology

 

In the past, many manufacturing procedures have been considered static due to regulatory constraints. Proposed process changes are often considered for feedback by FDA early in the regulatory submission process. However, this can also lead to ambiguity of what types of technology will be authorized or declined by the Agency going forward. Life science manufacturers often stick with what is approved to stay in compliance and not raise red flags with FDA.

 

Recognizing the need to reduce this ambiguity for embracing innovation, FDA launched an initiative called Pharmaceutical CGMPs for the 21st Century: A Risk-Based Approach. The goal of this program is to ensure process analytical technology principles are known by life science companies and include:

 

  • Modern concepts of risk management
  • Quality system approaches are incorporated into pharmaceutical manufacturing while maintaining product quality
  • Life science manufacturers are encouraged to use modern innovations in pharmaceutical manufacturing technology
  • FDA’s submission review and inspection programs operate in a coordinated manner
  • Regulations and manufacturing standards are applied consistently by FDA and the manufacturer

 

Benefits of Implementing Process Analytical Technology

 

FDA considers process analytical technology to be:

 

a system for designing, analyzing, and controlling manufacturing through timely measurements of critical quality and performance attributes of raw and in-process materials and processes, with the goal of ensuring final product quality.

 

The primary benefit of implementing process analytical technology is to enhance understanding and control of the manufacturing process. Consequently, the tools and principles of process analytical technology should increase the level of manufacturing process understanding in general.

 

Manufacturing Process

 

Further, meeting the regulatory requirement of validating the manufacturing process can only benefit from this understanding of what quality looks like. Five core ingredients of process analytical technology strategy that should help users boost their understanding include:

 

  • Enhanced process understanding and knowledge
  • Improved process control and efficiency
  • Reduction in production costs and waste
  • Faster and more efficient product development
  • Enhanced regulatory compliance

 

Adoption of Process Analytical Technology

 

Equally important, for the manufacturing team’s adoption of new technologies to be successful, employees must recognize the importance of quality assurance and patient safety. Moreover, proposing innovative approaches to pharmaceutical development should not lead to a regulatory stalemate between FDA and the life science manufacturer.

 

FDA encourages manufacturers to use the process analytical technology framework in clinical documentation, so a stalemate doesn’t occur during the regulatory process. This can include clinical evidence that helps demonstrate:

 

  • Process understanding and control strategy
  • Real-time process monitoring
  • Multivariate data analysis (MVDA)
  • Process control and optimization
  • Continuous manufacturing and quality by design (QbD)

 

Process Analytical Technology Manufacturing Examples

 

FDA has provided process analytical technology examples of the tools available that facilitate manufacturing process understanding. These converge at the intersection of scientific, risk-managed pharmaceutical development, manufacturing, and quality assurance.  

 

When used within an effective manufacturing system, process analytical technology can provide effective and efficient means for facilitating process understanding. Further, continuous improvement, and development of risk-mitigation strategies. In the PAT framework, PAT manufacturing examples can be categorized according to the following:  

 

  • Multivariate tools for design, data acquisition, and analysis
  • Process analyzers
  • Process control tools
  • Continuous improvement and knowledge management tools

 

Process Analytical Technology and Quality Assurance

 

Process analytical technology and quality assurance go hand in hand when it comes to manufacturing innovation. The above performance metrics for measuring quality focus on designing, analyzing, and controlling manufacturing through timely measurements of raw and in-process materials and processes.

 

For the same reason, process analytical technology commonly includes tools that can improve chemical, physical, microbiological, mathematical, and risk analysis. Simultaneously, these quality assurance tools that aid process understanding can also support meeting existing regulatory submission requirements to validate the manufacturing process.

 

Process Analytical Technology and Regulatory Approval

 

Achieving regulatory submission approval for a new product is rarely an easy process. The clinical evidence needed to support efficacy must include documentation of quality assurance delivered by the manufacturer.

 

Innovation in development, manufacturing and quality assurance that leverages process analytical technology should help answer these common regulatory questions from FDA experts:

 

  • What are the mechanisms of degradation, drug release, and absorption?
  • What are the effects of product components on quality?
  • What sources of variability are critical?
  • How does the process manage variability?

 

Regulatory Submission

 

Regulatory considerations that can help document quality assurance improvements from process analytical technology often are found in:

 

  • Reducing production cycle times by using on-, in-, and/or at-line measurements and controls
  • Preventing rejects, scrap, and re-processing
  • Real time release
  • Increasing automation to improve operator safety and reduce human errors
  • Improving energy and material use and increasing capacity
  • Facilitating continuous processing to improve efficiency and manage variability

 

Regulatory Documentation

 

Quality assurance improvements are centered around the manufacturing process and system processes involved. FDA considers a process to be well understood if regulatory documentation shows:

 

  • Why sources of variability can be identified and explained
  • When production variability can be managed by owners of the process
  • How quality attributes can be accurately and reliably predicted

This type of regulatory documentation provides insights for FDA regulators into materials used, an understanding of process parameters, changes in manufacturing, and environmental conditions.

 

The ability to predict these three items can show a high degree of process understanding. The goal is for your regulatory application to demonstrate your team and company understand how to reproduce process capability data and maintain a consistent state of control.

 

Conclusion

 

Process analytical technology is used to improve the scientific basis for regulatory specifications and promoting continuous improvement. The ability to enhance manufacturing while retaining or improving product quality is essential to helping patients and population health in general. Life science manufacturers should document technology improvements to FDA and demonstrate the ability to quickly resolve production-related technical issues.

In an interview with Pharmaceutical Technology®, Susan Schniepp, distinguished fellow, Regulatory Compliance Associates®, and co-chair of board of directors, Parenteral Drug Association, expands on the importance of maintaining a robust quality management system (QMS) in bio/pharmaceutical manufacturing. Schniepp hosts an interactive session on impact of the quality management system (QMS) on quality maturity at INTERPHEX, held in New York City on April 16–18, 2024.

 

For advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs) in particular, Schniepp emphasizes how fast-moving this sector is. “The regulations don’t keep up with the ATMPs. That technology, and their way of thinking, is turning over quicker than the regulatory standards,” she says.

 

“The changes in the regulations that are going to come are going to be around quality culture and maintaining a robust quality management system,” she adds. Ensuring documentation and keeping equipment calibrated are important practices to apply to these new fast-moving ATMPs, she states. Schniepp does not necessarily expect to see many changes in the regulations around ATMP development and manufacturing but thinks that there will likely be more guidance documents issued in the future, with one of FDA’s focuses being its quality management maturity model.

 

“There are some regulations out there that call out quality culture. In particular, the World Health Organization has one on data integrity. It has a definition and standard[s] on what quality culture is,” Schniepp says. She points out that a new aspect of her presentation at INTERPHEX this year is its interactive component, in which she sets up a scenario involving an internal audit where an incident occurs. She gives the audience three potential responses to discuss, but rather than simply asking them which response do they pick or which response is correct, she instead asks what does the chosen response say about that person or that company’s QMS and the maturity of that system?

The onset of a global pandemic and other factors are causing many U.S.-based pharmaceutical and medical device companies to evaluate whether to bring back manufacturing facility operations they’ve previously outsourced to other countries. In a time where ensuring quality is paramount, insourcing has the potential to allow these organizations to implement more stringent quality control standards. Deciding between a brownfield and greenfield strategy also optimizes logistics networks and reduces transportation costs, provided raw material suppliers are readily available.

 

A primary consideration when onshoring manufacturing is deciding whether to select a brownfield or greenfield site.

 

What Is a Brownfield Facility?

 

A brownfield manufacturing process utilizes a suitable existing facility and infrastructure. In many cases, the manufacturer will either purchase or lease the structure and perform any modifications required to complete the “fit-out”. In many brownfield projects, production is already occurring and personnel who are familiar with the projects and compatible quality control systems are in place. This may even be an existing facility within the corporate structure of the company. 

 

The most obvious advantage of choosing a brownfield site is a faster implementation. There’s no need to wait for the construction of a new facility, which could take a year or longer. If executed correctly, the transition to a brownfield facility can be quick and seamless, reducing downtime and minimizing disruptions that negatively impact service. Additionally, these sites may have legacy tech systems (ERP, eDoc, CAPA etc.) that can integrate the new operational processes.

 

brownfield greenfield

On the downside, brownfield facilities may have some production limitations due to the nature of the existing infrastructure. Scaling the operation may also pose significant challenges. As these structures are often older, they may have some operational inefficiencies and require more maintenance and upkeep. Some systems may even require replacement or considerable overhaul.

 

If you’re exploring the possibility of moving into a brownfield site when onshoring manufacturing processes, it’s essential to evaluate its current validation status. Transferring a new product into an existing facility often triggers a regulatory inspection and could lead to inspectional observations surrounding existing operations.

 

What Is a Greenfield Facility?

 

A greenfield site entails the construction of a manufacturing facility from the ground up. The manufacturer has more flexibility to customize the structure’s design to the project’s unique requirements. With proper planning, the site can also accommodate future growth more efficiently. Maintenance costs are usually lower than with a brownfield facility, as the building, equipment and machinery are typically brand-new and in peak operating condition. 

 

One drawback to opening a greenfield site is time. It may not be a viable option if the manufacturer must act quickly to keep up with customer demand or bring a new product to market when there is an immediate need. Hiring new staff and onboarding can also introduce a significant learning curve and lengthen the time frame until operations are up to speed.

The industry of products containing cannabis or related products like CBD has become increasingly popular and more available. One of the main catalysts for this cannabis business trend was The 2018 Farm Bill. The Farm Bill allowed for the agricultural production, transport and possession of hemp products, with some serious restrictions. The bill requires hemp to contain 0.3 percent or less of THC (the compound that can produce mind-altering effects) and also creates additional rules around the production of hemp.

 

Nevertheless, since the passing of the Farm Bill and since a growing interest in legalizing cannabis at the state level, both for personal and medical use, the marketplace has seen a big growth in Cannabidiol (CBD) and marijuana-based products. Despite this, businesses and consumers alike remain confused about what is and is not permitted by law.

 

Part of the challenge is that a gray area can exist between regulatory agencies, federal rules and state laws. This can cause confusion. Regulatory agencies and states are especially concerned with how companies market their product, so even a legal product can run afoul of regulations.

 

Regulatory Trends

 

Right now, some of the parallels in this industry include:

  • FDA warning letters: The FDA is sending warning letters to businesses offering CBD and marijuana-based products in situations where unsubstantiated claims are made. The FDA is especially strict with products being classified as dietary supplements. In June 2019, for example, the FDA sent warning letters to Curaleaf, advising the company that its marketing does not comply with the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.
  • New testing needs: Products with CBD need to be tested in controlled, clinical based studies if businesses want to establish and confirm claims. However, federal regulations listing marijuana as a schedule 1 substance make such tests legally challenging for many businesses. In addition, the rules for testing and compliance are constantly changing, creating added confusion about what is needed in terms of testing, reporting and compliance in general.
  • Some progress: In the industry, some are heartened by some signs of forward movement. The FDA did approve Epidiolex, a drug that contains CBD as a primary ingredient. The drug is used to treat Lennox-Gastaut syndrome or Dravet syndrome. The manufacturers of the medicine had to undergo testing and the approval process other drugs must undergo, so while the case sets the precedent that CBD and CBD-containing products can be classified as drugs, it does suggest manufacturers will need to undergo the same strict process.
  • Projected future regulations: In May 2019, the FDA held a public meeting to discuss the safety, manufacturing, marketing, sale and use of drugs and products with cannabis or cannabis-derived compounds as ingredients. The meeting allowed experts and the public to express opinions, concerns and requests. In addition, industry insiders say the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) regulations set by the FDA for drugs will soon likely include updated guidelines for CBD-containing drugs.

 

Stay on Top of Trends

 

Regulatory Compliance Associates helps companies stay compliant with changing FDA regulations surrounding the cannabis business. Whether you are producing CBD products or want to expand your current line of products, we help resolve regulatory and quality challenges to ensure compliance, even in an environment where gray areas still exist. Contact us at Regulatory Compliance Associates today for support.
