Ahead of the two-day agenda, SMi caught up with AstraZeneca's Device Manager and conference speaker Abha Raveau Violette, where she discusses her views on the pre-filled syringes industry as well as her expectations for the upcoming event.
Snapshot of Abha's interview:
Q) The Pre-Filled Syringes market has matured greatly over recent years, what key differences have you noticed in the last year regarding significant developments?
"Increasing regulatory expectations have changed the way pre-filled syringes are developed and handled during development and life cycle management. With the upcoming MDR requirements, regulatory requirements will continue to increase impacting development and commercial products."
Q) What do you see as the greatest challenge for you to overcome personally in the pre-filled syringes field at the moment?
"Life cycle management of pre-filled syringes and combination products overall continues to be a challenge. This is especially true for products which were made before design controls and the 21 CFR Part 4 Final rule. Pharmaceutical companies continue to face the challenge of walking through the tricky terrain of changing regulatory landscape while managing lifecycle changes for combination products. This is also true for development projects which are late in development or ready to launch."

Abha's presentation will be on 'Change is the only constant: Managing change through the lifecycle of Combination products' covering:
• Reasons for changes: Why change something that works?
• Regulatory expectations
• Managing changes through Design Controls
• Legacy products and changing regulatory landscape
• Opportunities and challenges
