In cystic fibrosis (CF), mutation of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene results in defective transepithelial ion transport, leading to life shortening inflammatory lung disease. Before lung studies, we tested the safety and efficacy of gene delivery to the nasal epithelium of CF patients using pCMV-CFTR–DOTAP cationic(More)
The first phase I study of cystic fibrosis gene therapy using cationic liposomes to deliver the cystic fibrosis conductance regulator gene to the nose reported partial and transient correction of the nasal transepithelial ion transport defect, While encouraging, further improvements will be required if this form of treatment is to be of therapeutic value.(More)
Visible particulates (VP) are one subclass of defects seen during the final visual inspection of parenteral products and are currently one of the top ten reasons for recalls 1,2. The risk posed by particles is still unclear with limited experience reported in humans but remains an important consideration during the manufacture and use of parenteral(More)
Vial "Fogging" is a phenomenon observed after lyophilization due to drug product creeping upwards along the inner vial surface. After the freeze-drying process, a haze of dried powder is visible inside the drug product vial, making it barely acceptable for commercial distribution from a cosmetic point of view. Development studies were performed to identify(More)
UNLABELLED Regulatory monographs in Europe and the United States require drug products for parenteral administration to be "practically free" or "essentially free" of visible particles, respectively. Both terms have been used interchangeably and acknowledge the probabilistic nature of visual particle inspection. The probability of seeing a particle in a(More)
