Advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs), such as somatic cell-therapy medicinal products or tissue-engineered products for human use, offer new and potentially curative opportunities to treat yet untreatable diseases or disorders. For cell-therapy medicinal products (CBMPs), multiple stability and quality challenges exist and relate to the cellular composition and unstable nature of these parenteral preparations. It is the aim of this review to discuss open questions and problems associated with the development, manufacturing and testing of CBMPs from a pharmaceutical drug product perspective. This includes safety, storage and handling, particulates, the choice of container closure systems and integrity. Analytical methods commonly used to evaluate the quality of the final CBMP product to ensure patient's safety will be discussed. Particulate contamination in final products deserve special attention since CBMPs cannot be sterile filtered. Visible and sub-visible particles may represent environmental contaminations or may form during storage. They may be introduced from processing materials such as single use product contact materials, ancillary materials, or any components such as primary packaging used for the final product. Currently available analytical methods for detecting particulates may not be easily applicable to CBMPs due to their inherent particulate nature and appearance.
