Why Should you Attend
The current thinking of the FDA regarding the use of the Limulus Amoebycyte Lysate (LAL) test for endotoxins in lieu of the rabbit pyrogens test has changed. As a result, the last guidance document, Guideline on Validation of the Limulus Amedocyte Lysate (LAL) Test as an End-Product Endotoxin Test for Human and Animal Parenteral Drugs, Biological Products, and Medical Devices, which was published in 1987, has been withdrawn by the agency.
Objectives of the Presentation:
- Provide a review of the current testing requirements
- Understanding what happened to the old 87/91 LAL Guidance for industry document
- Learn what has replaced it and why
- Learn common issues, misunderstandings and misinterpretations
- Determine who comprised the agency guidance team involved with in this new proposed Guidance
- Learn the documents supporting this new Guidance
- Learn about sampling, storage, handling and pooling
- How does one transition from one bacterial endotoxin test to another—understand the RPT (Rabbit Pyrogen Test)
- Learn about the Monocyte Activation Test (MAT). Determine when the Rabbit Pyrogen Test is appropriate to use in lieu of the LAL
- Understand the FDA´s expectation for screening of therapeutic products.
