dc.description.abstract The scope of Implantable Drug Delivery Systems (IDDSs) comprehends a variety of sterile therapeutic implements placed inside the body to exert a certain therapeutic action for extended duration. They are classified under different categories from pharmaceutical science and regulatory perspectives. The novelty and variety of IDDSs prevent the application of a uniform regulation for all IDDS products; therefore, sponsors face regulatory challenges to register and market their products. This review investigates pharmaceutical science literature and the United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) regulatory guidance to find how any IDDS is classified, regulated, and introduced in the market. The regulatory classification of any IDDS, as a 'drug', 'medical device' or a 'combination product', is the cornerstone in determining the regulatory pathway, which decides the quality control requirements preceding the marketing approval. IDDSs are generally recognized as combination products as they consist of two or more regulated components (drugs, medical devices or biological products) combined prior to use to function as a single entity. Although robust and defined US FDA regulatory pathways exist for each component independent of one another, the regulatory pathways for combination products are less formalized. en
