Source: Camargo Pharmaceutical Services

Camargo Pharmaceutical Services announces its plans to host a one-day workshop on April 10, 2008 in South San Francisco focused on the FDA approval pathway known as 505(b)(2). Ken Phelps, an industry expert in 505(b)2 approvals, is the president and CEO of Camargo Pharmaceuticals. Phelps will speak with attendees on the topic of drug repositioning, approval pathways within the FDA—specifically the regulatory differences between 505(b)(2) and other submissions.

"The workshop is a unique opportunity to meet one-on-one with attendees to truly learn the in's and out's of drug repositioning. We've spent numerous years in the industry and have many successful FDA submissions to our credit. There is a distinct process to repositioning a drug that has already been approved by the FDA," said Phelps.

Camargo Pharmaceutical Services offers scientific and regulatory drug development services for mid-sized pharmaceutical, biotechnology and drug delivery companies. With more than 150 FDA approvals, Camargo works with companies to develop comprehensive programs, managing every facet of the plan from formulation and testing the drug product, conducting clinical studies, and FDA application submissions. The chief scientific officer has also served as a team leader and reviewer in the new drug division of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
