COUNTERPHARM Report Summary

Project ID: G6RD-CT-2002-00849
Funded under: FP5-GROWTH
Country: France

Anti-counterfeiting methodology using combined methodology

Anti-counterfeiting methodology using a combination of stable isotope analyses, chromatographic impurity data and chemometric classification techniques. This is designed to protect pharmaceutical patents for European firms by confirming the authenticity of the starting materials and the method of production of pharmaceutical products.
A complete strategy modelled and tested on phenolic derivatives but that is applicable to a large number of series of analogous compounds. The work carried out in this project will provide the basic framework for setting up similar product/process data bases for an entire range of compounds.
Current status: a decision tree summarising the chosen methods/approaches in function of the type of counterfeiting problem encountered is available (project final report).
