    How To Prepare A Facility For The Biopharmaceutical Revolution

    Drug discovery is an inherently inefficient process. It takes thousands of failed compounds before one can get approved as safe and efficacious, and this effort does not come at a low cost. Because of this, the industry is constantly looking for ways to bring safe, compliant, and profitable drugs to market faster and cheaper. Patheon facility in Brisbane, Australia, exemplifies the facility needed to survive the future of pharma. But how did they do it?

    Securing Provision K Status For A Client’s API Helps To Expedite Shipping And Reduce US Importation Costs

    Active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) also known as bulk active pharmaceutical ingredients, are defined by the US Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) as ‘any component that provides pharmacological activity or other effect in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment or prevention of disease, or to affect the structure or any function of the body of man or animals.’ Generally, APIs are therapeutic components of drug formulations or finished pharmaceutical products that also contain fillers, binders’ excipients and other inactive ingredients. APIs are routinely evaluated or used by pharmaceutical companies for preclinical testing during new drug development, human clinical trials testing and commercial manufacturing of approved pharmaceutical products.
