  June 22, 2009  
The Center for Professional Innovation & Education, Malvern, PA
November 9 - 11, 2009

Who Should Attend

This three-day course is geared for those who assemble, supervise, or manage the preparation and submission of Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDAs).  Professionals in regulatory, analytical, quality, development and manufacturing groups will also find this course suitable. Additionally, the course will benefit those in other departments who are required to provide information to be incorporated into submission documents.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course attendees will:

  • Have a clear understanding of regulatory agency expectations and will have gained the background knowledge necessary to effectively plan and gather required documentation and assemble an ANDA
  • Have learned how to organize their company and develop timelines to assure that the ANDA is filed on time
  • Have gained practical knowledge regarding the development of templates and checklists to assure completeness of the application
  • Have gained the information necessary to prepare the ANDA in either paper or electronic format for final submission.

Course Description

This course provides comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge of the preparation of an Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) to the U.S. FDA Office of Generic Drugs. The course covers regulatory expectations regarding the format and content as described in FDA regulations and guidelines. The course focuses on the preparation of a paper-based submission but also give instruction on how to convert it to an electronic submission.  In addition, due to the small class size, there will be time to address specific issues and questions of individual participants.

Time is money -- avoidance of costly and time-consuming clinical trials is, therefore, quite desirable for drug companies in the race to bring products to the marketplace before competition.  A 505(b)(2) application might offer an appealing regulatory pathway alternative. This route permits companies to obtain FDA approval of new drug applications (NDAs) by relying, in part, on the Agency's findings for a previously approved drug.  Created in 1984 as part of Hatch-Waxman, the 505(b)(2) application is intended to encourage sponsors to develop innovative medicines using currently available products.  According to Section 505(b)(2) guidelines, an NDA approval can be obtained for a new drug without conducting the full complement of safety and efficacy trials and without a "right of reference" from the original applicant.  As a result, this course aims to clarify this process and give the participants the knowledge to develop a suitable drug product and prepare a successful 505(b)(2) application.
