Camargo Pharmaceutical Services and FDA to Share 505(b)(2) Expertise at 2015 AAPS Annual Meeting and Exposition

(Cincinnati, Ohio; Oct. 14, 2015)Camargo Pharmaceutical Services, the most experienced global strategists specializing in the 505(b)(2) approval pathway, will moderate a roundtable discussion with two FDA representatives and present three research posters at the upcoming annual meeting of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS).

Ken Phelps, president and CEO, will lead a roundtable discussion, “Conducting Successful PIND Meetings to Reach FDA Concurrence for Sound 505(b)(2) Development,” from 2 to 4 p.m. Oct. 28. Phelps will be joined by the pharmacologist lead and the quality assessment lead at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Topics to be discussed include creating a detailed pre-investigational new drug (PIND) meeting request, providing key information for the PIND submission package and best practices and common missteps when submitting to the FDA.

“Early preparation in the 505(b)(2) application process can result in quicker FDA approval at a fraction of the cost of traditional pathways,” Phelps said. “PIND meetings can help improve the value of the product in the pipeline and nearly eliminate the chance of clinical holds.”  

On Oct. 27, Dr. Loan Pham, a Camargo pharmacokinetic scientist, will present three posters:

Members of Camargo’s leadership team attending AAPS include Dr. Ruth Stevens, Dr. Gary Barnette and Dr. Lynn Gold, who is co-chair of the AAPS CMC focus group and will be available to discuss formulation challenges in 505(b)(2) development.
