Jennifer Farrington, PhD Friedrich von Associates of Cape Cod, Inc. Wintzingerode, PhD Roche Diagnostics GmbH Dear Friends and Colleagues, As co-chairs of the Program Planning Committee, we invite you to attend the 2017 PDA Endotoxins Workshop! Endotoxin, a cell wall component of gram negative bacteria, can cause varying levels of immune responses when introduced to the blood system. As a result, the onus is on the manufacturers of all parenteral drugs to control possible endotoxin contamination throughout the manufacturing process. As pharmaceutical manufacturing processes continue to become more streamlined and new therapy delivery continues to evolve, endotoxin control is evolving as well. The 2017 PDA Endotoxins Workshop will provide attendees with access to the most current topics in the field, regulatory expectations, and new ideas to take back to their laboratories. The 2017 Program Planning Committee has worked diligently to select a broad array of session topics to appeal to strategic managers and practical advice to assist tactical laboratory analysts. Plenary sessions will focus on academic perspectives on the limulus amebocyte lysate (LAL) assay and endotoxin structure and diversity. Regulatory and industry perspectives on practical issues related to endotoxins will also be addressed. Additional sessions will include concrete advice for bacterial endotoxins test (BET) laboratories and will address the emerging role of beta-glucans, not only as interference to the BET, but also as having a potential impact on patient safety. There will also be discussions on the monocyte activation test (MAT) and data integrity. Case studies will be presented in small, interactive breakout sessions, allowing attendees to discuss real-life problems and potential solutions. Finally, networking opportunities will allow attendees to make new connections and discuss the latest technologies and innovations. It is an exciting time in the world of endotoxin, and on behalf of the 2017 PDA Endotoxins Workshop Program Planning Committee, we look forward to seeing you in Bethesda!

10:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. B1: Non-Sterile Moderator: Eric J. Ward, MBA, Director of Quality Assurance, Boston Analytical

Session Description: Bioburden and microbial contamination represent, and will continue to represent, significant challenges to the controlled manufacture of sterile and non-sterile drugs and delivery devices. Successful control, assuring the requisite endproduct microbial quality attributes, must be commensurate with the different fundamental challenges bioburden and adventitious microbial contamination represent. This session will share strategies and practical tools as well as techniques in microbial control.

Session Description: Manufacture of non-sterile products presents a very different set of challenges for the microbiology laboratory. These groups of products include a wide range of types and dosage forms, each with its own considerations. Control of the entire process, from raw materials to finished product and the production area, is necessary to ensure that the conditions are appropriate for the intended application. As such, proper risk management is an essential component of these systems to provide thorough understanding of the system, the associated risks and proper controls. This session will delve into current regulatory expectations and trends, evaluation of incoming materials and environmental control as a part of the overall production system for non-sterile products.
