Pharmaceutical Online The Magazine 2010

As we head into 2010, the pharmaceutical industry is at a crossroads with consolidations, mergers, more stringent government regulations, and patent expirations. Blockbuster drugs from the 1990s and early 2000s are going off patent, significantly reducing revenue for big pharma and creating the need for a paradigm shift. Companies of all sizes are obsessed with becoming more streamlined and efficient in their current drug manufacturing practices while also trying to determine the best paths for reinvesting savings into new, profitable R&D ventures. The concepts of lean manufacturing and continuous processing are often cited in conjunction with QbD (quality by design) and PAT (process analytical technology) as the saviors of the industry’s inefficiencies. However, the adoption and implementation of these concepts has been slow due to the inherent complexities of pharmaceutical manufacturing. In addition to cost savings, many pharma companies are increasing their emphasis on protecting the market from counterfeit drugs. Consequently, there has been a focus on track-and-trace methods, such as 2-D bar codes and RFID (radio frequency identification) devices. Needless to say, there are numerous forks in the road that pharmaceutical executives must navigate in order to direct their companies to success. In this guide, we have tried to incorporate articles that include best practices that will help you on your journey.
