WHOPAR GUIDANCE for APPLICANTS (MANUFACTURERS) v 1.0

• The format of the Summary of Product Safety and Efficacy as contribution to the Discussion (Part 6) is described in Appendix 4.

• Bibliographic submission

For multisource products for which an innovator or comparator/reference product is not available e.g. products containing a new combination of active ingredients like FDC's or are traditionally used multisource products such as the artemisinines, full information on safety and efficacy as defined in guidelines of the European Union (Commission and EMEA), Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) must be submitted in a bibliographic submission13. A bibliographic submission should contain all relevant scientific literature, in the case of FDC's including evidence on the safety and efficacy of the equivalent combination of single API products, original clinical research (if carried out) and other documentation in support of the information provided in the Package Leaflet, Summary of Product Characteristics and Summary of Product Safety and Efficacy in the Discussion. The format for presentation of information and data should follow the manual 'Marketing Authorization of Pharmaceutical Products with special Reference to Multisource (Generic) Products: a Manual for a Drug Regulatory Authority14. Further useful guidance is provided in the draft WHO "Guidelines for Registration of Fixed Dose Combination Medicinal Products15 of September 2004 e.g. attachment 2, "Principles for determining whether data from scientific literature are acceptable". Information, especially with respect to submissions according to the format of the Common Technical Document (CTD) can be found at the website of the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH)16 as well as on those of the ICH Regulatory Bodies: EU (Commission17 and EMEA18), Japan (MHLW19) and USA (FDA20).
