 Enoxaparin sodium injection BA BE studies [Regulatives / Guidelines]

Hi all,

As per guideline we need not to perform any Bioequivalence studies for Injectables. But Enoxaparin sodium being a biologically derived product, is there any need of performing the BA-BE studies.

Does the guideline differs for a biologically derived product?:confused::confused:confused:

 BE of parenterals

Hi Varsha,

» As per guideline we need not to perform any Bioequivalence studies for Injectables.

It’s not that simple. See e.g., the EMA’s GL page 23.

» But Enoxaparin sodium being a biologically derived product, is there any need of performing the BA-BE studies.

That’s not the point. See the FDA’s guidance for conditions whether the in vivo PD (!) study can be waived.

» Does the guideline differs for a biologically derived product?

Differ to what? To get an idea, see the EMA’s guidelines on biosimilars.

Cheers,
Helmut Schütz

That's simply not true at all.

There is a (draft) US guidance on BE for enoxaparine. Good starting point. Have fun!

The draft guidance says that we need to prove the sameness between API.

Hello varsha,

You mean solutions. :-D

if (3) 4

x=c("Foo", "Bar")
b=data.frame(x)
typeof(b[,1]) ##aha, integer?
b[,1]+1 ##then let me add 1



Best regards,

Yes i mean injectable aqueous solution. As enoxaparin injection is API in aqueous solution. But enoxaparin being a biotech product, i just needed an clarification. Do we need to prove our AP to be similar or good enough to waive the BE studies.


Edit 2018-10-10 07:14: The draft guidance also says to prove the sameness of API. [Varsha]
