The agency knew this could not continue and began a wholesale transformation for defining acceptable drug development. One based on scientific understanding and risk management as a foundation for demonstrating safety and efficacy. The FDA launched its Critical Path Initiative in an effort to “lean out” the regulatory approval process. Specifically the objective was to modernize the techniques and methods used to evaluate the safety, efficacy, and quality of medical products as they move from candidate selection and design to mass manufacture through better predictive and evaluative tools: • innovative trial design, new statistical tools and analytic methods, use of modeling and simulation; • establishing and qualifying predictive biomarkers for specific conditions; • less stringent Current Good X Practice (cGxP)1 regulations for IND exploratory studies and clinical trials.
The guidance specifically states: “Under a quality system, senior management should incorporate a strong commitment 12 Applying Lean Six Sigma in the Pharmaceutical Industry to quality into the organizational mission. ” OpEx initiatives must frame their improvement initiatives with these policies and procedures in mind.
