CMC Recommendations Draft Guidance

Investigational New Drug Application Submissions for Individualized Antisense Oligonucleotide Drug Products for Severely Debilitating or Life-Threatening Diseases: Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Controls Recommendations, Guidance for Sponsor-Investigators

Draft Guidance for Industry

December 2021

Not for implementation. Contains non-binding recommendations.

Docket Number: FDA-2021-D-1139

Issued by: Center for Drug Evaluation and Research

The purpose of this guidance is to provide recommendations regarding the chemistry, manufacturing, and controls (CMC) information that should be provided in an investigational new drug application (IND) submitted by a sponsor-investigator (hereafter referred to as sponsor) developing an individualized antisense oligonucleotide (ASO) drug product for a severely debilitating or life-threatening (SDLT) disease caused by a unique genetic variant where only a small number of individuals are prospectively identified (typically one or two). These individualized ASO drug products should be from a well-characterized chemical class for which there is substantial clinical and nonclinical experience that is either publicly available or to which the sponsor has a right to reference.
