Course overview

This intensive five-day course provides a thorough understanding of how to develop a veterinary medicine in the EU and USA.

The development of a veterinary medicine is complex, time consuming and expensive. It requires teamwork from individuals with different scientific training and a wide range of skills. Everyone involved must be aware of the main stages in the development programme and be able to relate his or her responsibilities to the expertise and needs of the scientists and commercial members of the team. Furthermore, different approaches taken by the regulatory authorities in the EU and the USA mean that a comprehensive development programme must be designed in order for the product to be commercialised in both regions.

The event has been designed to demonstrate how pharmaceutical, pharmacological, toxicological and clinical investigations and regulatory management are brought together in the development programme. It will take participants through all the stages in the development of a veterinary medicinal product for which a marketing authorisation is sought in the EU and the USA. Presentations will cover pharmaceutical and process development, toxicological, pharmacological, residues and environmental studies, safety risk assessments, clinical development, regulatory and marketing input and project management.

Gain a comprehensive understanding of the processes for the EU and USA, including:

  • EU and US regulatory frameworks, strategies and procedures n MRLs Parts A & B; MAA Parts IIIA & IIIB
  • US FDA approach to HFS studies
  • User safety risk assessment in the EU
  • Planning pre-clinical and clinical development
  • Environmental risk assessment Phases I and II n EU and US target animal safety
  • Minor use and minor species (MUMS)
  • Writing and managing regulatory submissions

Who should attend?

This course has been designed for anyone who has limited experience in only one of the disciplines in veterinary medicine development, such as pharmaceutical or analytical development, clinical trials, regulatory affairs or quality assurance. Anyone learning the role of project manager, as well as more experienced personnel seeking to review special problems encountered in product development, will benefit from the comprehensive programme delivered by experienced professionals.

Previous delegates who have benefited from this course include clinical scientists, pharmaceutical scientists, marketing managers and personnel from regulatory affairs, R&D and development.

David and Julian explained the overall process clearly and concisely, highlighting challenges and proposing solutions to encourage smooth transitions throughout the development process and registration in the EU and US. The course was very interactive and I enjoyed the case study – working through the development process with other industry colleagues, and listening to their approaches for their cases. It was great to have resources easily accessible, and the expertise of [the speakers] to allow for open discussions.
