  6. Increase In HPAPI Manufacturing Highlights Need For Containment And Isolation Systems
    7/21/2015

    An estimated 25 percent of globally manufactured drugs contain highly potent active pharmaceutical ingredients (HPAPIs). HPAPI drugs, which include small-molecule and biologic compounds as well as antibodydrug conjugates (ADCs), are often used in the treatment of cancer. The fastest growing segment of the HPAPI market are ADCs, a new class of therapeutic agents that deliver cytotoxic drugs selectively to antigen-expressing tumor cells. Non-oncology HPAPI compounds include hormones, narcotics, and retinoids.
