Robust sterility testing protocols are essential to protect patients, medicine supply chains and manufacturers’ bottom lines. But how do companies build successful sterility processes?
Here, Andrew Mitchell of IQVIA outlines the six stages of pharmacovigilance case automation, exploring how implementing intelligent automation such as AI and ML could benefit pharmaceutical companies.
In this issue experts explore the development of targeted protein degradation drugs, how potential legislative changes may impact the EU and selecting the right downstream process for bi-specific antibodies. Also featured in this journal, how RMM can enable efficient shutdown recovery, five critical areas for data integrity in life sciences…
The pandemic has been a game-changer for the pharmaceutical industry, sending the seemingly inexorable globalisation trends into reverse, with Big Pharma increasingly seeking more domestic supply chain options. Here, Karen Winterhalter of Onyx Health shares her expert insights on the impact of this emerging trend on the industry.
The EU’s identification of medicinal products (IDMP) standards implementation was all set to go ahead, when the EMA suddenly announced a change of plan. The DADI user interface will now enable structured data submissions for the EMA PMS, at least for the near future. Drawing on recent dialogue with the…
Here, Origin’s Rich Quelch explores the potential benefits of basing drug prescription on pharmacogenomic data and how transitioning to such a system could impact the UK’s National Health Service.
With increasing numbers of cell and gene therapies (CGTs) entering clinical trials, Dr Dave Li and Dr Anna Baran of KCR Consulting discuss how the biological characteristics of CGTs should be taken into account with early phase trial designs.
Small biopharma companies often need to partner with larger firms to achieve their goals, but such agreements can fail if preparations are poor. Here, Diane Seimetz and Jörg Schneider at Biopharma Excellence discuss how due diligence smooths the path to collaboration.
Work is underway to create a collaborative virtual research institute (VRI) to support the fundamental research and subsequent clinical translation of precision medicine in Abu Dhabi, as well as the United Arab Emirates more broadly. Here, European Pharmaceutical Review’s Hannah Balfour discusses the project with the Head of the new…
As the face of healthcare changes and the emphasis on more-targeted remedies and preventative care increases, pharma’s traditional role in healthcare must also evolve. Here, Vintura Consultancy’s Gérard Klop looks at how pharma might carve out a new role in a more value-based healthcare market.
Here, EPR’s Hannah Balfour discusses the latest reports on pharmaceutical counterfeiting and falsification, exploring global and European crime rates, as well as recent counterfeiting incidents reported by Big Pharma.
With comment from Diane Paskiet, chair of the Product Quality Research Institute (PQRI) L&E Working Group, EPR’s Hannah Balfour outlines three key exposure-based safety thresholds and explores how the new extractables and leachables (E&Ls) strategy for parenteral drug products was established.
A recent empirical study of continuous manufacturing (CM) versus batch processing of US and non‑US pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities suggests that CM would be more economical than batch facilities, at least for the production of oral solid dosage products. This has significant consequences for policies and strategies to reduce supply chain…
Reducing downtime: acoustic emission testing of compressed air pressure vessels in pharmaceutical production
Leakage, cracking and corrosion in pressure vessels present a serious risk for operators of pharmaceutical production systems. Imminent damage must be reliably identified at an early stage to enable necessary steps to be promptly taken. Oliver Großgart, Plant Safety Expert at TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH, explains how TÜV SÜD…
