2) Setting Specifications for Drug Substances and Drug Products with
Emphasis on the ICH Guidelines
April 30-May 2, New Brunswick, NJ

Summary: A review of the activities, i.e. during drug development,
which occur in the process of setting specifications will be
presented. Critical specification issues for Drug Substances and Drug
Products will be reviewed. Time will be devoted to the interactions
and dialogs necessary between analytical and pharmaceutical/chemical
groups during the development of specifications. Using practical
examples the importance of understanding "real-life" constraints and
regulatory requirements will be highlighted. The latest activities at
with respect to specifications for Drug Substances and Drug Products
will be presented. Emphasis will be placed on Drug Substances of
chemical origin, and a wide variety of Drug Product formulations. The
faculty will encourage an open and interactive environment during the
course.

Who Should Attend: This course is intended for R&D and analytical
scientists and pharmacists from chemical/pharmaceutical development
groups and Quality Control. Pre-clinical research scientists will
benefit from an understanding of the importance of analytical
specifications. Regulatory affairs personnel will also benefit by
obtaining a better understanding of the details of the drug
development process as well as the assembly of the CMC Section of
Regulatory Submissions.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of the course, you will have
knowledge of the interactive processes of setting specifications, will
be familiar with regulatory and "in-house" specifications and
understand areas that need to be addressed during the process of
setting specifications. You will also be familiar with recent
activities in the area of specifications for APIs/Drug Substances and
Drug Products and all ICH "quality" guidelines. Attendees of the third
day session will become familiar with the new Q7A Guideline covering
GMPs for APIs/Drug Substances and with the regulatory requirements for
assembling the CMC-Section of NDAs/European Marketing Authorization
(ICH Guideline M4-Quality). You will have the opportunity to evaluate
the successful completion of these objectives through a Voluntary
Self-Assessment Examination.

1) Industrial Rheology
April 18-20, Amsterdam

Summary: This course on applied rheology emphasizes disperse systems
of the solid-liquid and liquid-liquid type. The course starts with an
outline of the basic principles of rheology and a description of the
various rheological variables. Concentrated systems and formation of
three-dimensional structural units are dealt with. Lectures on
dispersions and rheology of sterically stabilized and unstable systems
will be given together with descriptions of linear viscoelasticity,
elastic moduli and transient measurements. Specialized topics such as
rheology of clays and oxides, emulsions, polymer solutions and gels
will also be discussed. Finally, there will be a brief description of
the experimental techniques for measurements of rheology and the
application of these techniques to the control and assessment of the
long-term stability of suspensions. While the mathematics of rheology
will be addressed, the aim will be to show you how the equations can
be applied to the rheological behavior of real systems.

Who Should Attend: This course will benefit industrial chemists, other
scientists and engineers working with paints, pesticides,
pharmaceuticals, printing inks, paper coatings and food stuffs.
Research workers engaged in rheological studies in both industrial and
university laboratories should also benefit.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will have
knowledge of the basics of rheology and its application to suspensions
and emulsions. You will acquire skills in the techniques for the
measurement of rheology and its applications to some industrial
systems. You will also have an understanding of the rheology of
polymer solutions.

bonding mechanisms and agglomerate strength will be presented as part
of the course. However, the main emphasis is on practical experience,
development and actual problem-solving.
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will gain an
understanding of the fundamentals of agglomeration and equipment,
methods, scale-up, size, capacity and total systems approach to
agglomeration of fine particulates.
