Workshop on Cell- and Tissue-Based Regenerative Medicine Product Quality & Characterization

[ISCT members receive $100 registration discount. Contact isct@celltherapysociety.org]

 

On November 7-8, 2013, the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) and the International Society for Cellular Therapy (ISCT) will co-host the workshop, "Cell- and Tissue-based Regenerative Medicine Products: From Characterization to Compendial Assays.” Defining and assessing the quality of cell- and tissue-based regenerative medicine products are challenging, given their complexity and novelty. Quality attributes of regenerative medicine products can be identified and measured in different ways throughout preclinical development, clinical translation and marketing authorization. By bringing together stakeholders from industry, academia and the regulatory community, USP and ISCT will gather feedback on best approaches to quality standardization by looking at a wide variety of cell- and tissue-based products. The workshop will also focus on common issues and solutions that can help to develop and establish public standards to be included in the U.S. Pharmacopeia—National Formulary, USP’s compendia of quality standards for medicines and their ingredients.
