Nitrosamine virtual Interest Group Meeting
Pixabay/HeungSoon: Nitrosamine virtual Interest Group Meeting
We are now happy to present you the final agenda of the meeting, exclusively designed to help you enhance your expertise for improved outputs.
14:30 -14:45 Opening
14:45 -15:15 Challenges in Nitrosamine Detection in Drug Substances and Drug Products
Nitrosamine impurities are known to be mutagenic and carcinogenic impurities, which can be found into drug substances and drug products due to reagents, solvents or raw materials used in the manufacturing process. Because of the low detection limits required, GC/MS or LC/MS are the preferred techniques. The challenge in the method development is due to complexity of some drug products and the relatively high dosages: some case histories are discussed during the presentation, as well as the validation of the methods themselves.

15:45 -16:15 Analytical Strategies for the Accurate Determination of Nitrosamines Produced in the Manufacture of APIs and Drugs
Pharmaceutical companies are coming under increased scrutiny by regulators across the world to accurately identify and quantify mutagenic impurities in drug substances and products. Recently, several sartan, ranitidine, and metformin-based drug products were recalled due to the presence of nitrosamine contaminant in unacceptable amounts in these drugs. Consequently, the USFDA and other regulatory agencies published analytical testing methods to provide guidance to regulators and industry to evaluate mutagenic nitrosamine impurities in drug substances and drug products. In this presentation, we will cover the recent regulations for the detection of nitrosamines. We will also review the relevant GC/MS and LC/MS based analytical strategies for the identification and quantification of these nitrosamines in APIs and drugs.
