The Hard Cell

Developing new compounds for pharmacological applications involves a series of well established steps, including the design of small molecules and their synthesis, testing compounds using in vitro methods, and the assessment of compound activity in vivo, employing animal and human trials. Notably, the cost of this process increases as a drug advances further along the process towards market. For a compound to advance, it must satisfy stringent criteria before the decision to invest further in its development is made. There is continual review of the drug development process within the pharmaceutical industry to introduce new approaches to develop compounds in more efficient and costeffective ways. It is important to have stringent tests in order to avoid investing in compounds that will fail later in the development process. The key is to identify when to abort research and development of a particular candidate, and to learn from the experience.

The Impact of Components on Drug Quality and Risk Mitigation

West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc.

Expectations for quality by regulatory agencies are increasing at a very fast pace, especially for prefilled drug delivery formats, thanks to increased focus on reducing risk to patient safety. The trend has resulted in delays for new drug applications, more recalls of marketed products and even drug shortages if the container system and drug contents are suspect for quality issues. The pharmaceutical market is now requiring manufacturers of containers and components to meet new expectations with a quality culture and very high product reliability. The need to bridge the gap and provide superior quality products has been a driver for manufacturing technology investments, more robust control strategies and the introduction of next generation elastomer components.
