A Winning Formula

Considerable discussion has been had about the concept of patient centricity in the pharmaceutical community. The industry has taken a collective pause in an effort to re-evaluate longstanding approaches to drug development and commercialisation, with attention being recalibrated on the ultimate goal: making reaching improved health outcomes easier for the patient. This perspective is underpinned by the recognition that what is best for the patient will lead to beneficial outcomes for all stakeholders, including the drug company, the healthcare provider, and supporting community of associated service providers.

A famous quote from former US Surgeon General, C Everett Koop states “Drugs don’t work in people who don’t take them”. Less than one-third of all prescriptions written are estimated to be filled at the pharmacy by patients. Wide-ranging studies have shown medication adherence rates for life-threatening diseases including diabetes, heart disease, and oncology can be as low as 30-40%. With the benefit of interventional techniques and developing technologies, adherence rates have been shown to improve. However, these programmes are not broadly adopted with scale and have not had significant impact decreasing the overall cost of healthcare nor benefitted large populations.

Cleaning Validation: What do you need to consider to ensure a successful outcome?

RSSL

Cross contamination must be avoided in the Pharmaceutical industry at all costs and successful cleaning validation ensures that patients are not put at risk due to cross contamination. The process can be divided into a number of sections each of which must be fully understood and areas of concern addressed to ensure a successful outcome across the entire process. This spans both the manufacturing and subsequent analytical and microbological support. The data used to confirm a positive/successful cleaning validation is underpinned by the results of validated analytical methods. It is essential that these results are truly representative as patient safety is based upon the absence of equipment residues. So what are those areas of concern, what affects your ability to get a successful outcome and what do you need to consider when carrying out a Cleaning Validation exercise?
