The Questions
what are they

What Are They?

Regulatory Requirements for the Manufacture and Testing of Drugs, Biological Products, Human Cells & Human Tissues and Devices.

what are glps
What are GLPs?
  • GLPs describe good laboratory practices for conducting non-clinical laboratory studies that support or are intended to support applications for research or marketing permits for products regulated by the FDA. 21 CFR Part 58.
  • Compliance with GLPs is intended to assure the quality and integrity of the safety data filed pursuant to the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and sections of the Public Health Service Act.
  • Applicable to drugs, biologicals, devices, INDs (Investigational New Drug application) & IDEs (Investigational Device Exemption).
  • Compliance with GLPs not required for research outside the regulatory scope of the FDA.
  • Requirements for CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act) Compliance, CAP (College of America Pathologist) Compliance and FACT (Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapies) Accreditation are similar in many aspects to GLPs.
what are gmps
What Are GMPs?
  • Good Manufacturing Practices are defined in 21 CFR for Drugs and Pharmaceuticals in parts 210 & 211 and for Biologicals in parts 600-680.
    • Overlapping requirements occur.
  • GMPs pertain to the minimum current good manufacturing practice for preparation of drug products for administration to humans or animals or for preparation of biological products for administration to humans.
  • There are overlaps between GMPs, GTPs and FACT requirements.
what are gtps
What are GTPs?
  • The FDA has defined Good Tissue Practices for Human Cells, Tissues, and Cellular and Tissue-Based Products for the Prevention of the Introduction, Transmission, or Spread of Communicable Diseases.
  • Definition: HCT/P = ‘‘human cells, tissues, or cellular or tissue-based products.’’
  • 1270—Human Tissue Intended for Transplantation.
  • 1271—Human Cells, Tissues, & Cellular and Tissue-Based Products.

national foundation field trial salk vaccine
National Foundation Field Trial Salk Vaccine
  • 420,000 children; Salk vaccine (Parke-Davis & Eli Lilly). 200,000 placebo. 1.2 million, nothing. Total 1.8 million.
  • 20,000 physicians & health officers; 40,000 registered nurses; plus 264,000 volunteer principals, teachers & citizens. Cost $7.5 M; today $ 5 B?

polio vaccinations
Polio Vaccinations

"The Cutter Incident", Paul A. Offit, M.D., Yale Univ. Press, 2005

national foundation field trial result salk vaccine
National Foundation Field TrialResult: Salk Vaccine
  • 16 children died of polio, none of whom received Salk vaccine.
  • 36 children developed severe polio (iron lung required) only two of whom received Salk vaccine.
  • Children who did not receive Salk vaccine were 3.3 times as likely to be paralyzed as vaccine recipients.
  • No polio cases were specifically associated with Salk vaccine.

"The Cutter Incident", Paul A. Offit, M.D., Yale Univ. Press, 2005

national foundation field trial licensing distribution salk vaccine
National Foundation Field TrialLicensing & Distribution: Salk Vaccine
  • Results announced the morning of April 12, 1954 Ann Arbor, Michigan.
  • HEW Secretary Hobby signed licenses April 12, 1954, 5:15 pm for Parke-Davis; Eli Lilly; and three additional companies that had submitted prior samples of vaccine (Pitman-Moore, Wyeth & Cutter).
  • Vaccines shipped shortly thereafter from 13 lots approved by the Laboratory of Biologics Control. Overall, forty lots of approximately 5 M doses distributed.

"The Cutter Incident", Paul A. Offit, M.D., Yale Univ. Press, 2005

polio among recipients of licensed vaccine lots
Polio Among Recipients of Licensed Vaccine Lots
  • April 25, 1954, reports of polio among vaccine recipients begin. 6 cases of paralysis reported by 4/26 received vaccine from the same manufacturer, Cutter.
  • Cutter recalls vaccine 4/27.
  • Langmuir study follow-up.
    • 57 Children paralyzed; 5 died.
    • Vaccine induced disease more likely to be severe.
  • Infection of family & other contacts.
  • Estimates based on Shaw study in Idaho (per Offit) of Cutter lots with residual live virus
    • 200,000 infected.
    • 70,000 develop muscle weakness.
    • 164 severe paralysis.
    • 10 deaths.
  • Note: Wyeth also made vaccine that caused paralysis (lower frequency of contaminated lots)

"The Cutter Incident", Paul A. Offit, M.D., Yale Univ. Press, 2005

problem areas
Problem Areas
  • Mahoney Strain of Type 1 Polio (Highly pathogenic)
    • Good representative of a “hot” virus strain for a protective immune response.
    • Bad if inactivation is incomplete.
  • Filtration
    • Seitz vs. Porous Glass.
    • Change in Quality of Porous Glass Filters. Due to change in staff (one key retirement).
  • Safety Tests
    • Cell Culture. Sample volume (0.1% of final vaccine).
    • Monkey. Subsequent studies revealed that cortisone treated monkeys demonstrated live virus in Cutter samples previously tested in monkeys without steroid. Inoculation into the spinal cord found to be 500 fold more sensitive for detecting live virus.
  • Bulk Intermediate Storage
    • Salk’s lab treated with formaldehyde within days of filtration.
    • Cutter often stored for weeks or sometimes months before inactivation.
    • Viral particle clumping over time.
  • Inactivation Kinetics
    • Salk recommended at least four sampling time points, with the last negative for virus. Total time of formaldehyde exposure = 3 x the time to reach the no detectable virus level.
    • Eli Lilly & Parke-Davis, six time points.
    • Cutter never determined when live virus FIRST eliminated. Disregard of Salk’s inactivation theory.
  • Inactivation Difficulties
    • Cutter never acknowledge difficulties in obtaining consistent inactivation (9 of 27 lots failed).
    • National Foundation selected Eli Lilly & Parke-Davis because they were the only companies to make at least 11 consecutive lots passing safety tests.

adventitious agents
Adventitious Agents
  • SV40 in Polio
    • An “adventitious viral agent”. Was present in monkey kidney cells used to grow polio virus.
    • Found in both Salk & Sabin Vaccines, 1955-1963.
    • SV40 is more resistant to formaldehyde inactivation.
    • IOM Report 10/22/02.
      • Studies of groups of people who received polio vaccine during 1955-1963 provide evidence of no increased cancer risk.
      • However, because these epidemiologic studies are sufficiently flawed, the committee concluded in this report that the evidence was inadequate to conclude whether or not the contaminated polio vaccine caused cancer. In light of the biological evidence supporting the theory that SV40-contamination of polio vaccines could contribute to human cancers, the committee recommends continued public health attention in the form of policy analysis, communication, and targeted biological research.
    • CDC
      • Over 98 million Americans received one or more doses of polio vaccine during the period (1955-1963) when some of the vaccine was contaminated with SV40. SV40 has been found in certain types of human cancers, but it has not been determined that SV40 causes these cancers. The majority of evidence suggests there is no causal relationship between receipt of SV40-contaminated vaccine and cancer; however, some research results are conflicting and more studies are needed.
  • Qualification of MCBs & MSVs are Important!

  • GMP for Phase I.
  • Exploratory INDs.
  • “Science is rapidly coming to understandings of the genetic and molecular mechanisms of not just a disease like cancer, but diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and on and on. As that rapid scientific discovery is occurring, the FDA is committed to facilitating the rapid translation and the development of that knowledge into the development of new drugs or treatments that are going to alleviate those diseases. But rapid does not mean reckless. There is no compromise in the rigor of the clinical trials process, no compromise in the rigor of laboratory testing and animal testing, or on the standards that will be applied.”Remarks by Andrew C. von Eschenbach, M.D., Acting Commissioner of Food and Drugs, Thursday, January 12, 2006
