Dissolution Best Practices and International Harmonization


The Chinese pharmacopeia (CHP) has different requirements for dissolution testing compared to USP/EP/JP, such as:

  1. Testing approach and passing criteria for different stages is different, CHP requires a Q=85% while US is typically 80%
  2. Interpretation of the "Q" term for certain dosage forms is different
  3. No more than 12 dosage forms can be investigated.
These differences can cause considerable retooling of methods and specifications, as a company plans to release product in China.

This workshop will cover best practices, science-based approaches, rationale of CHP requirements. We will also discuss strategies to partner with our CHP colleagues to achieve quality, efficient and science-based approaches to meet our patient needs.

This workshop will also provide a forum to increase awareness and partnership with our global colleagues. This will also provide an opportunity to share preliminary survey findings on this issue as well as hear your feedback and concerns. Based on this session, we will develop a future workshop to address these and other global dissolution discrepancies.
