We need the below information to serve you better

Course Description:

Because a phase 1 clinical trial initially introduces an investigational new drug into human subjects, appropriate CGMP help ensure subject safety. It is important to implement quality control (QC) principles to the manufacture of phase 1 investigational drugs (i.e., interpreting and implementing CGMP consistent with good scientific methodology), which foster CGMP activities that are more appropriate for phase 1 clinical trials, improve the quality of phase 1 investigational drugs, and facilitate the initiation of investigational clinical trials in humans while continuing to protect trial subjects.

The following steps to establish the appropriate manufacturing environment for phase 1 investigational drugs should be taken:

  • A comprehensive and systematic evaluation of the manufacturing setting (i.e., product environment, equipment, process, personnel, materials) to identify potential hazards
  • Appropriate actions prior to and during manufacturing to eliminate or mitigate potential hazards to safeguard the quality of the phase 1 investigational drug

Review the FDA recommendations and requirements for implementing a compliant program for the phase 1 clinical program.

The following topics will be discussed to provide the foundation and basis for advancing drugs into clinical development from research and providing required information to the FDA regarding these products.

  • Overview of Good Manufacturing Practices

Local Attractions of San Diego, CA

San Diego Cabrillo National Monument
The first European to set foot in California was the Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, who stepped on shore near this spot in in 1542. He's the guy they made this statue to look like - and named the park after. We don't know if Cabrillo climbed all the way up to the top of this promontory or not, but people who make up here nowadays get some of the best views of San Diego, looking across the Bay and back toward downtown.

Sea Creatures at Birch Aquarium
Birch Aquarium is north of San Diego in La Jolla. It's not as big as some of the other aquariums in California or as flashy as the big sea-themed park down the road, but instead just right, filled with interesting exhibits and home to leafy sea dragons like the one above, creatures so improbably they look more like something from a children's book than from the ocean.

Legoland
Legoland theme park takes its inspiration from Lego toys, those cute little bricks that snap together to build all kinds of fun things. It's one of several Legolands worldwide.


San Diego Zoo Safari Park
The San Diego Zoo's sister park offers a different kind of animal experience. Its name (Safari Park) is the clue and it indeed offers a more safari-like experience. Lots of large animals live in the same big, open areas here - predators kept away from prey, but otherwise much as they would in their natural habitat.

Coronado Island
Coronado isn't really an island but a peninsula - a fact that doesn't get in the way of the name most people use for it. Whatever you call it, it's on a slender strip of land between the San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean, barely a few blocks wide. What it lacks in size it makes up for in fun, with a beach that's been named among the best in the country, a classic hotel and a compact, lively little downtown. Coronado's laid-back temperament makes a nice break from the busier parts of San Diego across the water.

Balboa Park
Originally built for temporary use during the 1915-16 Panama-California Exposition in San Diego, Balboa Park boasts buildings beautiful enough to be considered attractions in themselves, especially if you're a photographer. They're surrounded by trees, lawns and fountains, but that's only the beginning.
