Event Title
FDA/HESI Research Roadmap Planning on Hazard and Risk Assessment of Nitrosamine Impurities in Drugs
May 31, 2023 - June 1, 2023


Date:
May 31, 2023 - June 1, 2023
Day1:
- ET
Day2:
- ET

Workshop Objective: The goal of the workshop is to engage stakeholders with expertise in the assessment of nitrosamines (NA), including Nitrosamine Drug Substance-related Impurities (NDSRI) in order to achieve the following:

  • Provide a high-level synthesis of key areas/objectives of current research on NA detection and evaluation;
  • Identify short-term (1-2 years) research needs that can address data gaps required to improve nitrosamine (NA) risk assessments;
  • Identify mid-term (3-5 years) and long-term (5+ years) research needs to improve nitrosamine (NA) risk assessments;
  • Discuss potential opportunities and forums to realize the identified research gaps (e.g., FDA-initiated Public Private Partnership, existing or new consortial efforts, grants, private sector research efforts, etc.)
  • Develop a NA-research roadmap in support of an uninterrupted drug supply that is also protective of public health.

Note: In-depth technical discussions of data sets or methodologies are out of scope for this workshop. Similarly, regulatory policy discussions are also out of scope.

The Webcast is open all interested participants. All of the meeting sessions (with exception of the breakout group meetings) will be broadcast live for viewing online via GoToWebinar. Online viewers may submit comments via the chat feature. A moderator in the meeting room will review these comments and may introduce them into active discussion when/if feasible.
