Event SummaryThe Particles in Injectables conference provides you with a summary of information on the risks to human health associated with particulate matter. Particles can arise from many sources: foreign, intrinsic, or inherent to the product. Particulate matter, visible or subvisible, in sterile parenteral products is regarded a critical quality attribute, impacting patient safety. One session will focus on the nature and sources of these particles in parenterals and in infusion sets used in clinical studies and hospitals. The difference between particles in drugs and clinical infusions will be highlighted. Another session will focus on clinical effects of particles to patient safety and the preventive effects of in-line filtration. Furthermore, the regulatory landscape will be discussed from amanufacturing and clinical point of view. The KRINKO guideline 2017 (Germany) recommends the use of particle in-line filter for the treatment of intensive care patients.
