Celltrion Biosimilar Is Latest To Run Into GMP Compliance Concerns

Executive Summary

An FDA inspection uncovered a wide-ranging list of GMP problems at biopharmaceutical manufacturer Celltrion in South Korea. Among some of the problems that inspectors found were mold on walls in sterile areas, operators leaning over sterile areas with bare hands and arms, and employees using shared passwords. A resulting Form 483 report is the latest in a number of recent enforcement actions targeting proposed biosimilar drugs.
