American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists tapped to manage PQRI

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 16 -- In effort to reduce the regulatory burden on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the pharmaceutical industry, the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) announced today the formation of the Product Quality Research Institute (PQRI). The goal of this collaborative effort between the government, industry and academia is to produce science-based policy that ensures quality reviews without unnecessary testing. The Institute's recommendations are expected to speed new drug approvals and reduce the industry's cost for pharmaceutical development. Ultimately, the public will benefit because of lower costs and faster availability of new drugs for life-threatening diseases.

"We are not testing actual drugs," said Larry Augsburger, AAPS President. "We are testing processes and procedures that will be used to help verify pharmaceutical properties and their effectiveness. Recommendations will help fast-track pharmaceuticals, benefiting all Americans, especially those who currently have no disease treatment options available."

How PQRI Works

Under the purview of AAPS, PQRI will consist of a board of directors, a steering committee and technical committees. The five-member board of directors is charged with the administrative management and operations of the Institute. The board has authority over the collection and disbursement of funds and the administrative procedures required to guarantee effective operations.

Following the lead of the technical committee, working groups of scientists will perform research projects aimed at streamlining policy, while still ensuring the highest level of product quality. The technical committee then reviews the findings for scientific validity. Assuming approval, the steering committee votes on whether or not to make a recommendation to the FDA. The FDA can either accept or reject the findings.
