Thursday 5th December 2024
Regulatory Hot Topics IX
Royal Society of Chemistry, London

The topic of mitigating counterfeit and falisified medicines will open the JPAG Hot Topics meeting this year. Falsified medicines are fakes that are designed to mimic real medicines whereas Counterfeits are those that do not comply with intellectual-property rights or that infringe trademark law. Both may impose a serious public health threat globally on consumers and patients. According to WHO in 2018, counterfeit medicines represented 10% of medicines globally and result in death of around 1 million individuals annually. Until recently, those most frequently found in wealthy countries were expensive 'lifestyle' medicines such as hormones, steroids and antihistamines and in developing countries, medicines used to treat life-threatening conditions such as malaria, tuberculosis and HIV / AIDS. The phenomenon is on the increase with more and more medicines now being falsified including expensive medicines (such as anticancer medicines) and medicines in high demand (such as antivirals). This symposium introduces the topic and highlights some key themes and case studies. This could include:
- Systematic approaches to measuring the scale of the problem
- Regulatory perspectives for mitigating and fighting the spread of counterfeits
- Illegal online pharmacies and dark web
- Innovation in blockchain and the role it plays in supply chain
- Smart packaging and labelling
- Efficiency of track and trace technology in preventing the spread of counterfeits
- Increasing public awareness towards harm resulting from counterfeit medicines
- Analytical approaches to detecting counterfeit medicines
- Different approach to assessing medicines quality
- Detection of counterfeit medicines outside the lab

Other topics for the meeting include updates from the British Pharmacopoiea (BP) team and some highlights on ePILs and devices. In addition, speakers will share their recent experiences and updates on the ongoing nitrosamines and titanium dioxide activities with hopes for the future.

The meeting is open to the submission of abstracts for posters in line with the above proposed key themes. We would especially welcome case studies on any pharmaceutical counterfeit work across industry and academia.

TESTIMONIALS...

Very enjoyable and thought-provoking day; going away with plenty of notes and specific items for discussion.

Excellent meeting, challenging and thought provoking. The organisation was excellent, thanks to all the efforts that JPAG team have made.

I have not attended a bad JPAG meeting yet. They are really good value for money and I really love to get the presentations as PDFs


I did appreciate receiving the slides before, as then I could print them and make notes around them during the symposium.

Getting an industry perspective on this topic was most helpful.

I appreciate having access to relevant JPAG seminars from overseas; provision of lectures beforehand to allow reading beforehand.

I did like having the presentations available early, with the webinar portion being focused on Q&A.

Fantastic to hear from NHS speaker, provides real insight to patient/clinician considerations that we don't necessarily see in industry.

From attendee perspective, the course did not take up the whole day as no travel necessary and overall good value for money.

Hearing the information from the clinical setting side was very useful.

Well organized. This was an amazing session. Prior sharing of the presentation was a great add on!

The most useful aspect of the webinar was the variety in the presentations across industry and the regulators. Really good to review the presentations beforehand.

Good value, well organised symposium. Always useful for focused topics.

A very good day. Enjoyed getting to speak to the presenters to discuss current challenges in industry.

Well done to all the speakers and the organisers for being able to successfully hold highly informative conferences virtually! (July 2020)



JPAG plans and delivers events that address all aspects of pharmaceutical analysis and related facets of medicine control & registration.
