EMA: Questions and answers: Positions on specific questions addressed to the Pharmacokinetics Working Party,

In the context of assessment procedures, the Pharmacokinetics Working Party (PKWP), or its predecessor the Therapeutic Subgroup on Pharmacokinetics of the Efficacy Working Party (EWP-PK subgroup), is occasionally consulted by the CHMP or, following CHMP’s agreement, by other Committees, Working parties or the CMD(h). The objective is to address specific questions in relation to pharmacokinetic evaluations and particularly the requirements and assessment of bioequivalence studies. The positions, which are being elaborated by the PKWP in response to such questions, are being forwarded to the enquiring party for consideration in their assessment.
