CSPS Workshop: Therapeutic Equivalence of Complex Molecules and Formulations

Therapeutic Equivalence of Complex Molecules and Formulations

Monday & Tuesday, September 10-11, 2018

Banting Auditorium, Sir Frederick Banting Building,
Tunney’s Pasture Campus, Ottawa ON

About CSPS

The CSPS is a national voluntary professional society of members committed to establishing a network of pharmaceutical scientists in Canada in pursuit of excellence in research, development and training. CSPS conferences and workshops support the goals for facilitating research, policy development, information sharing, and promotion of best knowledge and practices throughout Canada.

CSPS Workshop 2018

The proposed theme for the CSPS Workshop 2018 includes the pharmaceutical sciences in therapeutic equivalence of complex molecules and their formulation science. Therapeutic equivalence is constantly evolving and innovating to the challenges of modern issues and health system requirements. There is an abundance of contemporary interest in the science and policies in the duplication of complex molecules. This desire results in the need to advance and innovate formulation science to harness the advantages of unique drug release technologies and apply them to practice pharmacology.

Forum & Location 2018

A two-day collaborative workshop is planned with Health Canada, its scientific staff, and the pharmaceutical community of scientists from academia, brand and generic industries, in keeping with the mission of CSPS.

The workshop will be held September 10-11, 2018, in the Banting Auditorium, Sir Frederick Banting Building, Tunney’s Pasture Campus in Ottawa, Ontario.

Faculty of Speakers and Panelists

Health Canada and its scientific staff, the pharmaceutical community of scientists from academia, brand and generic industries, and policy and patient advocates.

Collaboration and Sponsorship

Health Canada’s unique collaboration in-kind (venue and speakers); the pharmaceutical community and industry (sponsorship and speakers).

Registration

All participants will be pre-registered; workshop fees to be determined. Registration fees will be waived for speakers, panelists, chairs, and Health Canada registrants.

Tentative Topics

Suggested by the CSPS corporate members, and with open discussion to solicit your contribution and refinement.

Complex Molecules:

  • Synthetic and semisynthetic proteins and peptides
  • More topics will be included, for example: mixtures of complex molecules where the contribution of each compound is unclear or unknown

Subsequent Entry of Products with Special Characteristics:

  • Long acting bronchodilators
  • Multiphasic release formulations
  • Modified-release injectable products
  • Modified release formulations of narrow therapeutic window drugs
  • Narcotic analgesics
  • Oral products intended for local gastrointestinal effects
  • Abuse-deterrent formulations of opioids
