The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) mandates regulations governing the drug disposal of controlled drugs by the ultimate user (patient). The regulations do not prohibit the patient or family member from disposing of medications in their home. However, they expand the options for this disposal to include and encourage the use of authorized collectors which will include pharmacies, hospitals, clinics within pharmacies, certain manufacturers, distributors, and law enforcement agencies. All of these collection options are voluntary and the disposal regulation does not require the patient to utilize any of these methods for disposal of controlled substances.The agency has also revised the regulation recently and any method of drug disposal that was valid prior to the new regulation continues to be valid. Thus thenew regulation does not prohibit the patient (or family member within the household) from using current existing lawful methods for drug disposal.
Data integrity is the completeness, accuracy and consistency of data, regardless of the format in which it is generated, retained or used. Maintaining the integrity of data pertaining to GMP activities is very important for maintaining compliance with the regulations. Best practices for maintaining data integrity not only encompass the Quality Control (QC) data but also the data which is generated by other activities like manufacturing, validation, packaging, materials management, facilities management and more. An effective way of maintaining data integrity involves risk-based and holistic assessment of the systems that store the data related to GMP operations, and include manual, electronic and hybrid systems.

Developing cost effective new drugs and therapies is a major challenge for life science industry. Drug development involves a number of phases among which the clinical trial management phase is the most complex one. It needs planning, execution and monitoring of clinical trials to obtain reliable study data for regulatory submissions. However, in the clinical trial management, one of the major costs owes to the clinical monitoring. Studies have revealed that conducting frequent monitoring visits to investigational sites and 100% source data verification (SDV)through traditional ways don’t always lead to high data quality. This calls for a smarter and better approach for more efficient study data monitoring. A number of monitoring approaches have evolved these days but the centralized monitoring has been proved to be the most effective approach for improving patient safety and data quality in a cost effective manner. Many regulatory bodies, including FDA, encourage the use of centralized monitoring.
