RADIO PHARMACEUTICALS</li></li></ul><li>Parenteral: The dosage form for conveying a drug by means of injection through the skin or mucous membranes.<br />Parenteral drugs are administered directly into the veins, muscles or under the skin, or more specialized tissues such as the spinal cord.<br />Circumvented the highly efficient first line body defense that is skin and mucus membrane. <br />Thus they should be free from microbial contamination and should have high purity.<br />
COMMON TERMINOLOGY <br />Aseptic-“without sepsis” Used to designate a practical level of sterility.<br />Parenteral<br />Sterile<br />Alert level- An established microbial or airborne particle level giving early warning of potential drift from normal operating conditions.<br />Action Level- An established microbial or airborne particle level that, when exceeded, should trigger appropriate investigation and corrective action based on the investigation.<br />HVAC- Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.<br />Laminar flow of air- Airflow moves in a single direction and in parallel layers at constant velocity.<br />
COMMON TERMINOLOGY <br />ULPA filter : Ultra-low penetration air filter with minimum 0.3 µm particle retaining efficiency of 99.999 percent.<br />LVP : A liquid intended for infusion and hermetically sealed in a container of greater than 100 ml volume.<br />SVP : A parenteral preparation hermetically sealed in a container of 100 ml or less volume.<br />Pyrogen : The fever producing lipid associated with polysaccharide or polypeptide of microbial origin.<br />Sterilization : A process designed to completely eliminate or destroy all living microorganism.<br />Process validation:<br />SAL :<br />
SOME IMPORTANT PARENTERAL PREPARATION<br />IV Admixturesconsist of one or more sterile drug products added to an IV fluid.<br />Used for <br />Drugs intended for continuous infusion<br />For drugs that may cause irritation or toxicitywhen given by direct IV injection. <br />IV fluids<br />These fluids have multiple uses, <br />Vehicles in IV admixtures<br />Provide means for reconstituting sterile powders<br />Serve as the basis for correcting body fluids and electrolyte disturbances<br />For administering parenteral nutrition<br />
Dextrose: Generally, a solution of 5% dextrose in water<br />pH of 5% dextrose ranges from 3.5-6.5. Instability may result if it is combined with an acid sensitive drug.<br />In higher conc. (e.g. 10% solution in water), dextrose provides a source of carbohydrate in parenteral nutrition solutions.<br />Should used cautiously in patients with diabetes mellitus.<br />Sodium chloride :usually given as 0.9% solution called as normal saline solution.<br /><ul><li>Sterile sodium chloride for injection: </li></ul>Used as vehicle in IV admixtures and fluid for electrolyte replacement.<br /><ul><li>Bacteriostatic sodium chloride for injection: </li></ul>It contains an agent that inhibits bacterial growth (e.g. Benzyl alcohol, Propylparaben. Methyl papaben), allowing its use in multiple dose preparation.<br />
Water <br />Used for reconstitution and for dilution of IV solutions such as dextrose and sodium chloride. <br />Water suitable for parenteral preparations include sterile water for injection and bacteriostatic water for injection.<br />Ringer solutions <br />Used for fluid and electrolyte replacement. <br />Commonly administered to post surgical patients.<br />It contains sodium lactate, sodium chloride, potassium chloride, and calcium chloride.<br />
Electrolyte preparation<br />Ions present in both intracellular and extracellular fluid.<br />Surgical and medical patients who can not take food by mouth or who need nutritional supplementation require the addition of electrolytes in hydrating solutions or parenteral nutrition solutions.<br />Dialysate<br />Used in paients with disorder as renal failure, poisoining, and electrolyte disturbances.<br />In peritoneal dialysis, a hypertonic dialysis is infused directly into peritoneal cavity via a surgically implanted catheter. It contains Dextrose and electrolyte, which removes the harmful substances by osmosis and diffusion.<br />
Irrigating solutions<br />Not intended for infusion into the venous system. <br /><ul><li>Topical administration</li></ul>Used in irrigating wounds, moistening dressings, and cleaning surgical instruments.<br /><ul><li>Infusion of irrigating solutions</li></ul>Surgeons performing urological procedure often use irrigating solution to perfuse tissues in order to maintain the integrity of surgical field, remove blood, and provide a clear field of view.<br />
Parenteral preparation <br /> Intravenous, Intraspinal, Intramuscular, Subcutaneous, and Intradermal.<br />Intravascular route complete drug availability occurs immediately<br /><ul><li>For all other routes, at least a blood vessel wall, and usually one or more tissue cell walls, must be permeated before the drug can enter the circulation.
Most often this occurs by passive diffusion and is most favourable when the drug has bothlipophilic and hydrophilic properties, with the former being predominant.
So with nonvascular injection, absorption is also affected by such factors
Size and number of blood vessels supplying the tissue,
TYPES OF PROCESSING<br />Terminal sterilization<br />The product in its final container is subjected to a sterilization process such as heat or irradiation. <br />In most cases, the product, container, and closure have low bio-burden, but they are not sterile. <br />Aseptic process <br />The drug product, container, and closure are first subjected to sterilization methods separately, as appropriate, and then brought together.<br />Because there is no process to sterilize the product in its final container, it is critical that containers be filled and sealed in an extremely high-quality environment. <br />
Types of Operations for Terminally Sterilized Products<br />Note<br />Grade A and B correspond to with class 100, M 3.5, ISO 5<br />Grade C correspond to with class 10000, M 5.5, ISO 7<br />Grade D correspond to with class 100000, M 6.5, ISO 8<br />

Parameters to be taken into consideration in the Design of a Parenteral Production Facility: <br />Environmental factors such as site selection, area planning, space planning, design and construction features, traffic flow of personnel and supplies, and service features.<br />Site selection <br />Criteria for site selection <br />Basic factors<br />Pharmaceutically important factors <br />land availability, land cost, <br />construction cost, taxes, <br />utility costs, labor availability,<br /> labor cost and so on. <br />Requires special consideration <br />because of unique <br />pharmaceutical needs. <br />
Basic plant requirement includes an adequate supply of raw materials, transportation availability, market proximity, adequate utilities, and labor supply.<br />Minimizing shipping may aid in minimizing potential contamination, material degradation due to ageing or lack of environmental control (e.g. temp. & humidity).<br />Area planning it depends on <br />Type of production<br />Batch operations -Suited to small production volume & minimum financial investment is necessary.<br />Advantages<br />Product quality, consistency, and homogeneity are relatively easily controlled.<br />Production documentation is easy.<br />Disadvantages<br />Economically undesirable because it is labor intensive and does not exploit the economies of volume.<br />
Continuous operations: It is suited to very high volume production requirements.<br />It requires more space and more complex equipments.<br />Advantages<br />Minimizes shortcoming of batch operations; labor, production time, and environmental exposure of the product.<br />Since the intermediate material handling steps are eliminated, the potential for product contamination during those steps is no longer exists.<br />Disadvantages<br />Product quality assurance is difficult.<br />It is very difficult to document the ingredients or process cyclefor a product produced in a continuous process.<br />
Container size<br />SVPs and LVPs obviously requires different space considerations.<br />All the production equipment has container size limitations- large container requires large equipments and more space.<br />Environment control needs<br />For aseptic filling process<br />Sterilization and <br />Depyrogenation of<br /> containers before filling,<br /> normally hot air oven<br /> or autoclave. <br />Provision must <br />be made for<br />Filling requires <br />An aseptic environment with <br />the attendant support rooms <br />Inspection and Packaging<br />
Non aseptic filling, followed by terminal sterilization, normally requires less rigid environmental control.<br />Terminal sterilization<br />Eliminates the <br />sterilization prior<br /> to filling <br />Following to <br />filling and sealing <br />An accumulation and segregation<br /> area is required to accumulate <br />the product for transfer to the<br /> next process step <br />
Product characteristics<br />Liquids are probably the easiest product to handle.<br />Emulsion may require compounding areas close to filling lines to ease transfer problems. Pumping systems will be very critical.<br />Suspension will require a means of maintaining a homogenous mixture prior to filling. <br />To minimize the time the suspension resides in piping, reservoir, and pump system, filling rate should be kept high and the distance from compounding to filling should be minimized.<br />

Personnel flow <br />Discontinuous and crowded flow patterns can decrease production efficiency, increase security problems, and increase the problems of maintaining a clean environment. <br />Personnel flow path from zone to zone must be such that access to higher level of cleanliness is only through change rooms, gowning rooms, locker rooms, or other areas as may be required to prepare the personnel for the cleaner area.<br />Access should be restricted. <br />× Design<br />1<br />3<br />4<br />2<br />√ Design<br />2<br />1<br />3<br />4<br />
FILLING AREA <br />The product & sterilized components are exposed to room environment.<br />Therefore these areas are specially constructed, filtered, and maintained to prevent environmental contamination. <br />Clean room must meet several requirements:<br />The room should undergo 15-20 air changes per hour.<br />HEPA filters are to clean the air entering the room.<br />HEPA filters remove all airborne particles of size 0.3 or larger with an efficiency of 99.97%.<br />Maintaining higher air pressure (+ve pressure) within the critical area to minimize infiltration of airborne contaminants from outside. <br />Adjacent rooms of different grades should have a pressure differential of 10 - 15 Pascals. <br />
Care should be taken to ensure that air flows do not distribute particles from a particle-generating person, operation or equipment to a zone of higher product risk. A warning system should be provided to indicate failure in the air supply.<br />Counters in the clean room should be made of stainless steel or other non-porous, easily cleaned material.<br />Walls and floors should be free from cracks or crevices and have rounded corners. If the walls or floors are to be painted, epoxy paint is used.<br />The air flow should move with uniform velocity along parallel lines. The velocity of the air flow is 90 ± 20 ft/m3.<br />Providing temp. & humidity controls appropriate to the product being manufactured.<br />
PERSONNEL & GOWNING<br />No. of workers should kept to a minimum. <br />Training of personal<br />Personal hygiene:-All employees should be in good health, Subjected to Physical examination, Understood their responsibilities to report own illness like cold, a sore throat, or other infection.<br />Clothing<br />Uniform is made up of Dacron and Span polyethylene.<br />Hats & masks are sometimes made of special parchment paper. <br />Foot wearsplastic and rubber material.<br />
Air handling system<br />Air Classification as per Schedule M<br />Air Classifications by USFDA guideline on Sterile Drug Products<br />
Air Classifications as per WHO 2002<br />As per ISO<br />
The following equipments as pre Schedule-M are recommended:<br />Manufacturing area<br />Storage equipment for ampoules, vials bottles and closures. <br />Washing and drying equipment. <br />Dust proof storage cabinet <br />Water still. <br />Mixing and preparation tanks or other containers. <br />The tanks or containers shall be made of either glass or such materials as will not react with the liquid. <br />Mixing equipment where necessary. <br />Filtering equipment. <br />Hot air sterilizer. <br />
Aseptic filling and sealing rooms<br />Benches for filling and sealing. <br />Bacteriological filters. <br />Filling and sealing unit under laminar flow work station. <br />General Room<br />Inspection table. <br />Leak testing table. <br />Labeling and packing benches. <br />Storage of equipment including cold storage and refrigerators if necessary. <br />
Sterile Garment Cabinet<br />Stainless steel <br />Ensure a clean storage space by making use of UV disinfectant and heating through IR lamps.<br />These cabinets may be designed in horizontal air flow system and clean air through HEPA filters <br />
HEPA Filter<br />HEPA filters can remove at least 99.97% of airborne particles 0.3 µm in diameter. <br />HEPA filters are composed of a mat of randomly arranged fibres (poly-vinylidene fluoride -PVDF) <br />Key metrics affecting function are fibre density and diameter, and filter thickness. <br />The air space between HEPA filter fibres is much greater than 0.3 μm. The common assumption that a HEPA filter acts like a sieve where particles smaller than the largest opening can pass through is incorrect. <br />Smaller pollutants and particles are mainly trapped (they stick to a fibre) by one of the following three mechanisms<br />Interception<br />Impaction<br />Diffusion<br />
Laminar flow hoods<br />Clean air work benches are specially designed to ensure the aseptic preparation of sterile products.<br />Air flow rates <br />0.3 m/s (vertical)<br />0.45 m/s (horizontal)<br />Introduction of personnel, equipment, and material into the work area provides sources of particulate matter which may contaminate the product.<br />Very small particles are not heavy enough to settle due only to the force of gravity, but instead are carried and directed by air currents. and if there is turbulent air, particles may be driven into product.<br />Laminar air flow velocity satisfactorily sweeps the area yet does not create unacceptable turbulence.<br />
Types of containers<br />Ampoules<br />They are intended for single use only. <br />Because glass particles may become dislodged during ampoule opening, the product must be filtered before it administered. <br />Limitation<br />Unsuitability for multiple-dose use<br />The need to filter solutions before use <br />Other safety considerations <br />
Vials<br />Glass or plastic containers are closed with a rubber stopper and sealed with an aluminum crimp.<br />Advantages over ampoules.<br />They can be designed to hold multiple doses (if prepared with a bacteriostatic agent). <br />It is easier to remove the product. <br />They eliminate the risk of glass particle contamination during opening.<br />Drawbacks<br />Multiple withdrawals (as with multiple-dose vials) may result in microbial contamination.<br />
Double Chambered Vials<br />Some drugs that are unstable in solution are packaged in vials in powder form and must be reconstituted with sterile sodium chloride for injection before use.<br />Some of this drugs come in vials that contain a double chamber.<br />Top chamber- sterile water for injection<br />Bottom chamber- unreconstituted drug <br />Both chambers are separated by a rubber closure. <br />To dislodge the inner closure and mix the contents of the compartments, external pressure is applied to the outer rubber closure. <br />
Prefilled syringes<br />Designed for quickest administration and maximum convenience. <br />Drugs administered in an emergency (e.g.atropine, epinephrine) may be available for immediate injection when packaged in prefilled syringes. <br />

FILTERS IN FILTRATION STERILIZATION<br />Millipore’s Airvent filters<br />Constructed with a PTFE membrane. <br />These filters have been qualified to withstand at least 40 SIP cycles at 135 °C for 30 minutes. <br />Millipore’s Durapore filters<br />Constructed with a PVDF membrane <br />These filters have been qualified to withstand 5 to 30 SIP cycles at 135 °C for 30 minutes <br />Verification of integrity of filter<br />Bubble point method<br />Diffusive flow<br />Pressure hold test <br />
Test Method<br />1. Record the filter part number(s), lot number, and product information. Also include physical observations.<br />2. Wet the filter to be tested with the appropriate solvent (water for hydrophilic filters, alcohol for hydrophobic filters).<br />3. Place the wetted filter in the appropriate housing.<br />4. Connect the outlet fitting from the compressed air pressure regulator to the upstream side of the test filter.<br />6. Connect a piece of flexible tubing from the downstream port of the test filter into a beaker filled with water.<br />7. Starting from zero pressure, gradually increase the pressure to the test filter using the pressure regulator.<br />8. Observe the submerged end of the tubing for the production of bubbles as the upstream pressure is slowly increased in 0.5 psig increments. Note the rate that the bubbles appear for the end of the submerged tube.<br />9. The bubble point of the test filter is reached when bubbles are produced from the tube at a steady rate. Record the pressure to the nearest 0.5 psig as indicated on the pressure gauge.<br />
STANDARAD OPERATION PROCEDURE<br />For aseptic filling:-<br /><ul><li>Check all sterilized material has indicator and expiration date.
Open sterilized container, filling assembly and tubing on LAF bench.
Connect solution tank to the inlet of the filling assembly.
Connect the nitrogen over lay in tank for pre and post flushing.

HVAC Validation<br />Features of HVAC affect product quality (sterility).<br />HEPA integrity<br />Certification: by filter manufacturer indicates that filter is capable of removing all particulate matter equal to or greater than 0.3 in size with an efficiency of 99.97%.<br />Installation: a certified filter if improperly installed will not perform its function & provides a false sense of security.<br />Integrity testing: A popular method for certifying integrity of filter installation uses polydisperse aerosol, created by blowing air through liquid Dioctyl phthalate, introduced into upstream of HEPA filter followed by scanning the entire downstream of filter face with a probe nozzle of an aerosol photometer.<br />This testing will indentify “leaks” caused by damage due to mishandling or faulty construction.<br />Small leaks can be repaired with a suitable silicone based compound without removing filter. <br />
HVAC Validation (Cont.)<br />Airflow resistance : Caused by dirty filter may reduce airflow volume, thereby reducing the air change rate in critical areas.<br />Airflow resistance is expressed as pressure differential between the air pressure upstream of the filter and the downstream air filter.<br />If the filters are not changed when they reach the maximum resistance as specified by manufacturer, they may begin to lose their physical integrity or rupture, thereby releasing some of the dust they have accumulated.<br />Airborne particle control<br />Particle count surveys should be performed at regular intervals.<br />Airflow direction<br />Determination of unidirectional flow involves measuring the parallelism of air flow generating from HEPA filter throughout the work zone.<br />This can be accomplished using an isokinetic smoke generator & measuring devices to determine offset from straight line flow.<br />
HVAC Validation (Cont.)<br />Room pressure difference<br />Special monitoring devices which measure the pressure differential are connected directly to an alarm system that will cause a visual signal (flashing light) or an audible signal (Alarm buzzer) to report a deviation outside a prescribed range of pressure differential.<br />Temp. & Humidity control <br />Cleanroom Environmental Monitoring<br />
Packaging of finished product<br />Packaging material. <br />(1) Glass<br /> (2) Plastic<br />Plastic is more preferred over glass as packaging material for no of reasons.<br /> - Ease to form <br /> - High quality<br /> - Freedom of design<br /> E.g.--Polypropylene, PVC, Polystyrene, Nitrile polymers.<br />
USP requirements for packaging.<br />Single dose container should not be more than 1 liter.<br />Intra-spinal and intra-cisternal administered product must be in single dose container.<br />In case of multiple dose container dose should not be more than 30 ml.<br />
BFS Technology<br />It refers to the technology and related equipment and procedures in which the formation of the container, its filling with liquid pharmaceutical material, and subsequent formation and application of a seal for container are achieved aseptically in an uninterrupted sequence of operations without exposure to nonsterile environments between poerations.<br />
