Complex drug product preparation and submissions

The FDA describes complex generic drug products as:

  • “Products with complex active ingredients (e.g., peptides, polymeric compounds, complex mixtures of [active pharmaceutical ingredients], naturally sourced ingredients); complex formulations (e.g., liposomes, colloids); complex routes of delivery (e.g., locally acting drugs such as dermatological products and complex ophthalmological products and dosage forms that are formulated as suspensions, emulsions, or gels); or complex dosage forms (e.g., transdermals, metered dose inhalers, extended-release injectables);
  • Complex drug-device combination products (e.g., auto-injectors, metered dose inhalers); and
  • Other products where complexity or uncertainty concerning the approval pathway or possible alternative approach would benefit from early scientific engagement.”
