Reinventing Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing with Single-Use Disposable Systems

Advancements in biotechnology and bioprocessing are driving the rapid development, commercialisation and availability of biopharmaceuticals globally. The US Department of Commerce reported in 2003 that there were more than 370 biotech drugs and vaccines in clinical trials in the US. Additionally, of the 155 biotechnology drugs and vaccines that have received regulatory approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to date, 70 per cent of these have been in the last six years (1).

Technological breakthroughs have resulted in an unprecedented number of drugs and biologics currently in research and development phases. Biopharmaceutical manufacturers face increased pressure to commercialise new and unique therapies faster and at lower cost. As a result, production demand is outpacing available manufacturing capacity. To meet existing and future demand and maintain a competitive advantage, many manufacturers are striving to develop increased efficiencies within their manufacturing processes.

Translating Cancer Genomics Into A Personalised Approach For Cancer Patients

PRA Health Sciences (PRA)

Over the past few decades, the approach to prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer has radically shifted from organ-based to morphology-based and most recently, to genetics-based. Personalized or precision medicine (tailoring a treatment for a patient’s particular disease at a precise time point) is being performed every day at different levels in the clinical setting.
