European Pharmaceutical Contractor


European Pharmaceutical Contractor (EPC) is designed to fill a unique position in pharmaceutical publishing. Providing a dedicated platform of communication and information for the international pharmaceutical contract market, it consists of a series of articles and case studies written by eminent figures in contractor groups and traditional multinational pharmaceutical companies.

Each quarterly edition examines areas of importance – both economic and technical – to contract research organisations, contract manufacturers, regulatory controllers, consultants and analysts. This enables regulatory bodies to link directly with policy-makers both in major contractor groups and pharmaceutical companies, and thereby convey regulatory information directly from the governing bodies, but also ensure debate between the policy-makers and consultancy groups.

All development of the compound was put on hold until the results of this study were submitted to the FDA and approval granted for the compound to progress into full development.
