Focus For The Town Hall: Gene Therapy Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Controls

The FDA requires sponsors to provide information about chemistry, manufacturing, and controls (CMC) as part of investigational new drug, biologics license, and new drug applications. For gene therapies and other biologic products, the CMC information should describe the sponsor's commitment to perform manufacturing and testing to assure product safety, identity, quality, purity, and strength (including potency). Please see this FDA guidance document for more information about CMC data to support gene therapy product applications. In this town hall, subject matter experts from OTAT’s Division of Cell and Gene Therapy will answer questions related to CMC for gene therapy product development.
