Achieving Zero Defects in a Pandemic

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, the industry is working tirelessly to identify an effective treatment and vaccine.

Drug manufacturers have always aimed to minimise time to market while also protecting injectables against contamination. However, the challenges COVID-19 has posed to global supply chains have placed even greater emphasis on this goal.

Considerations for Choosing the Right Wearable Drug Delivery System

West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc.

For patients with chronic conditions, the use of injectable biologic therapies is on the rise. Biologics, while providing considerable therapeutic benefit, can also present several challenges for both drug manufacturers and patients.
