This guideline describes the information to be documented when an application for a marketing authorisation for recombinant or human plasma-derived factor IX products is made for use in treatment and prevention of bleeding in patients with haemophilia B. The guideline covers clinical investigations to be conducted pre- and post-marketing authorisation. Guidance is also provided for authorised products where a significant change in the manufacturing process has been made.
Timeline history of guideline: The original Note for Guidance on Clinical Investigation of Human Plasma Derived FVIII and FIX Products (CPMP/BPWG/198/95) came into operation on 14 February 1996. The first revision (CPMP/BPWG/198/95 Rev. 1) came into operation in April 2001. The original Note for Guidance on Clinical Investigation on Recombinant FVIII and FIX Products (CPMP/BPWG/1561/99) came into operation in April 2001. Draft revisions of CPMP/BPWG/1561/99 and CPMP/BPWG/198/95 were released for public consultation in July 2007. Following this consultation, it was decided to reorganise the guidance to have separate documents: The Guideline on clinical investigation of recombinant and plasma derived factor VIII products (EMA/CHMP/BPWP/144533/2009) and the Guideline on clinical investigation of recombinant and plasma derived factor IX products (EMA/CHMP/BPWP/144552/2009).
