Application of the Multivariate T(2) Control Chart and the Mason-Tracy-Young Decomposition Procedure to the Study of the Consistency of Impurity Profiles of Drug Substances

Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.]The impurity profile of a drug substance is a quality characteristic of paramount importance. However, it is usually multivariate and complicated by relationships among the impurity levels that prevent separate analysis of impurities by multivariate statistical procedures. A case study from the chemical and pharmaceutical industry shows that application of the multivariate T(2) control chart and the Mason-Tracy-Young decomposition procedure can provide several benefits in the manufacture of drug substances.
