Targeting Nitrosamine Precursors with Novel Active Material Science Scavenger Technologies

Published on: 


Webinar Date/Time: Thu, Jun 27, 2024 11:00 AM EDT

Join this webinar to explore how the latest innovations in active material science technologies can mitigate N-nitrosamine risks by addressing the root cause of nitrosamine formation. Learn how customizable active packaging solutions can be tailored to suit specific drug requirements, enabling pharma developers to meet regulatory compliance and mitigate risk without requiring extensive formulation changes or disruption to manufacturing workflows.

Event Overview:

As pharma companies face increasing regulatory scrutiny and risk of product recalls due to N-nitrosamine formation in drug products, the mechanism of reaction and root cause of formation is not always understood, which can make risk mitigation difficult. Current mitigation strategies tend to focus on changes to formulations, sourced materials, or manufacturing processes, which can be costly. Additionally, controlling the variables associated with N-nitrosamine formation is not always certain. Additional or alternative mitigation strategies need to be considered to fully address risk. This webinar will explore how new innovations in active material science technologies can be leveraged to deliver an active packaging-based solution that can react with NOx gases and nitrites in the packaging headspace to inhibit nitrosamine formation. These technologies can both stop nitrosamine formation and serve as an additional insurance policy by adsorbing/scavenging N-nitrosamines postformation to provide a holistic risk mitigation solution.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Explore the role nitrites in excipients play in nitrosamine formation
  • Understand how mechanisms of reaction and root cause of nitrosamine formation inform mitigation strategies
  • Learn how active material science scavenger technologies can meaningfully reduce nitrite impurity levels

Who Should Attend:

  • Analytical scientists
  • Formulation scientists
  • Senior principal scientists/principal scientists
  • Packaging directors
  • Business development directors
