On 10 October 2019, the European Commission published some guidelines on Good Clinical Practice specific to Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products
The 15-page document lists the Commission’s guidelines on several topics regarding the research and development of ATMPs including clinical trial design, non-clinical studies, quality and safety instructions, traceability, and sample retention.
When it comes to medical devices, the guidelines specify that if an ATMP incorporates a medical device (“combined ATMP” and medical devices that are otherwise an integral part of the investigational ATMP), the Investigators Medicinal Product Dossier (IMPD) should contain:
Where applicable, the cover letter should contain a list of medical devices which are to be investigated in the clinical trial but which are not part of the investigational medicinal product or products, together with a statement as to whether the medical devices are CE-marked for the intended use. In addition, the Protocol should contain summary information on the characteristics, performance, intended use of the device and its regulatory status.
