  3. 3. BACKGROUND: ABOUT BIOWAIVERS Pharmaceutical Equivalence Perspective Regulatory Status of Biowaivers: Global Bioequivalence Therapeutic Equivalence 3
  4. 4. CURRENT PEDESTALS OF BIOWAIVERS Applications for biowaivers are granted on the basis of: BCS • Considers the dose:solubility ratio, permeability and dissolution Perspective Regulatory Status of Biowaivers: Global behaviour. IVIVC • Based on correlation between in vitro data and in vivo profile. Composition Proportionality • New product is qualitatively same and 4 quantitatively proportional to bio-batch.
  5. 5. BCS BASED BIOWAIVERS Class I Class II of solid oral For grants • High Solubility • Low Solubility of: dosage forms • High • High Perspective Regulatory Status of Biowaivers: Global Permeability • Permeability products SUPAC-IR • ANDAs Class III Class IVAspects: Current • High Solubility • Low Solubility • Low •• Low Extension Potential Permeability • Permeability Risk Assessment • Objections Along with dissolution behaviour of product 5

  12. 12. HHS-FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION Dosage Forms • Parenterals, solutions, IR solid oral dosage forms Perspective Regulatory Status of Biowaivers: Global Drug Efficacy Study Implementation (DESI) • No past bioINequivalence case • Example: Hydroxyzine Hydrochloride Tablets Fed-BE Study • If taken on empty stomach • No effect of food 12„Criteria for waiver of evidence of in vivo bioavailability or bioequivalence‟, CDER, HHS-FDA, CFR Sec. 320.22(b)
  13. 13. HHS-FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION BCS Based Biowaivers • Only IR products with class 1 APIs • Post-change products (for minor changes) Perspective Regulatory Status of Biowaivers: Global Proportional Similarity based biowaivers • Else additive change must be NMT 10% or • Change of API compensated by excipients in different strengths IVIVC based biowaivers • For MR products • Post-change products (SUPAC Level 3) 13FDA Guidances- 1995, 1997, 1997, 2000, 2003

  16. 16. CDSCO GUIDELINESBCS based biowaiver: Class I Dosage forms• Highly soluble• Highly permeable nasal sprays, powders Perspective Regulatory Status of Biowaivers: Global • Solutions, gases,• Dissolution: 85% in 15 min for reconstitutionComposition proportionality: Excipient considerations:• Qualitatively same• • All dosage forms must Quantitatively proportionalcontain essentially• same excipients as comparator Same method of manufacture• At least one of the strength has been studied for its bioavailability 16 Guidelines for Bioavailability and Bioequivalence Studies, CDSCO, 2005

EXCIPIENTS Well established No interaction with the PK of the active substance Perspective Regulatory Status of Biowaivers: Global expected Not affect the rate and extent of absorption In case of atypically large amounts of known excipients or new excipients being used, additional documentation has to be submitted. 26
