  • Using QbD For Process Optimization Of A Novel Oral Solid Dosage Form
    Using QbD For Process Optimization Of A Novel Oral Solid Dosage Form

    As stated in the International Conference on Harmonisation Harmonised Tripartite Guidance on Pharmaceutical Development, ICH Q8 (R2), “The aim of pharmaceutical development is to design a quality product and its manufacturing process to consistently deliver the intended performance of the product.”1 Several tools are available as guidance issued by FDA such as “Quality Systems Approach to cGMP Manufacturing”2 that includes ideas such as Quality by Design (QbD) in the development process. This guidance, amongst others, lay the framework for expectations of regulatory reviewers in their examination of client submittal documentation.

  • Modular Facility Design: A Cost-Effective Option In The Post-Blockbuster Drug Era
    Modular Facility Design: A Cost-Effective Option In The Post-Blockbuster Drug Era

    The pharmaceutical industry has undergone a sea of change in recent years as manufacturers have adapted to the end of the era of large-volume production of mass-market blockbuster drugs. With firms now focusing in on subpopulations of patients, there is a need for lean, adaptable facilities that can switch quickly between multiple products in multiple formats. Modular facilities can meet this need. While not a panacea, for the right project characteristics, ‘Modularity in Design’ can deliver significant and quantifiable long-term value.
