Seven secret ingredients for successfully launching and commercialising a biopharma’s first drug in Europe
After the US, Europe is considered the second most attractive market for serving patient needs while realising commercial value from innovative drugs. However, the 27 EU member states each have their own approaches to pricing and market access – and need tailored commercialisation and go-to-market strategies. Simon-Kucher & Partners analysed…
Despite the stringent storage conditions required for Pfizer and BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine, the need for a return to normal life has levelled the playing field for all candidate prophylactics against SARS-CoV-2.
Pioneering a full-ecosystem microbiota approach to improve survival outcomes in life-threatening diseases
The human gut contains the largest ecosystem of microbial species having complex host-microbiome interactive networks that contribute to our physiology and regulate our immune system. An imbalance in this host-microbiome interaction is associated with disease and the ability to restore or stabilise the network by introducing a rich and diverse…
As the global COVID-19 response continues, so does the rapidly expanding pipeline for a novel COVID-19 vaccine. Here, experts from Avalere Health outline ongoing US and global vaccine development efforts, including the role of public-private partnerships in accelerating vaccine development. They will also focus on the broader context of respiratory…
This article shares the results from an evaluation of a novel thermal imaging technology that took place before the initial implementation in a Pfizer manufacturing facility. The manuscript describes the technology and reviews the extensive process used to challenge its inspection capabilities through field testing. Finally, the potential benefits of…
Innovations in analytical science: development of rapid, high-throughput glycoanalytics for biopharmaceuticals
Researchers have developed a novel high-throughput method for the detection of glycans in purified biopharmaceutical samples. In this article, Victoria Smith, Lewis Wharram and Stuart Jamieson discuss their innovative approach and the implications for safety and potency assurance in biopharmaceuticals.
Active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) are primary components in the manufacture of drugs, yet this global market experiences numerous challenges. Regulatory pressure, pricing arbitrages, a shift to digital manufacturing and patents for blockbuster drugs are chief among them, but the COVID-19 pandemic added a further hurdle as governments globally decided to…
