Guidance on Conduct of Stress Tests to Determine Inherent Stability of Drugs

  title={Guidance on Conduct of Stress Tests to Determine Inherent Stability of Drugs},
  author={Saranjit Singh and Monika Bakshi},
he International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) guideline entitled ‘Stability Testing of New Drug Substances and Products’ (Q1A) requires that stress testing be carried out to elucidate the inherent stability characteristics of the active substance (1). It suggests that the degradation products that are formed under a variety of conditions should be identified and degradation pathways established. It is stated that the testing should include the effect of temperature, humidity where… 

An Approach to Drug Stability Studies and Shelf-life Determination

Some techniques shows high sensitivity and resolution power to establish more effective stability-indicating method while for shelf life estimation of drugs and products the different methods mentioned are FDA’s method, the direct method, inverse method, simulation results and Garret and Carper method.

Pharmaceutical Forced Degradation Studies with Regulatory Consideration

Accelerated testing is of clear benefit, as use of elevated temperature to increase the rate of interactions is the most powerful factor to shorten the length of time required for these tests.

Validated Stability Indicating HPTLC Method for the Estimation of Amoxapine in Different Stress Conditions

The unstable and/or toxic degradation products may form due to degradation of drug which results into loss of therapeutic activity and lead to life threatening condition. Hence, it is important to

Drug Stability: ICH versus Accelerated Predictive Stability Studies

The International Council for Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (ICH), along with the World Health Organization (WHO), has provided a set of guidelines (ICH

Review on Stability Indicating Assay Methods (SIAMs)

The regulatory aspects for development of stability indicating methods are reviewed and force degradation is required to demonstrate the specificity when developing SIMs and for this reason, it should be perform prior to implementing the stability studies.

Stress Testing / Forced Degradation Studies and Experimental Approach for Stress Studies in Analytical Chemistry

Slowing down the rate of chemical degradation or physical change of an active drug substance or drug product using exaggerated storage conditions as part of the formal, definitive, storage program is recommended.

Development and Stability of Forced Degradation Studies Indicating Different Brands of Metformin Drugs

A forced degradation study is an essential step in the design of a regulatory compliant stability program for both drug substances and products, and formalized as a regulatory requirement in ICH Guideline Q1A in 1993.


Forced degradation is the process or state in which new drug substance and drug products are with the conditions which are more severe than acce lerated stability conditions. The stability of drug


A stability-indicating liquid chromatographic (LC) method was developed and validated for quantitative determination of eplerenone in tablets. Eplerenone (drug and drug product) solutions were



Stability-indicating assay for hydrochlorothiazide.

A stability-indicating method for determining hydrochlorothiazide in tablet formulations and in the bulk form gave accurate results for nine lots (four different suppliers of tablets and two bulk drug lots) and has a relative standard deviation of about 1%.
