Drug developers face challenges with deciding who will manufacture their product even before it’s approved by regulators. Ensuring a consistent and reliable clinical supply of an investigational drug product is key to the success of trials. Patients involved in clinical studies must be dosed on time to make sure data integrity is maintained.
Once a new drug or biologic is approved, pharma companies must determine the best way to scale up manufacturing while maintaining product quality. This might involve technology transfer to a new pharmaceutical manufacturer.
Pharma companies may also choose to engage a contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) early in the trials process to take advantage of some of the benefits of outsourcing. Either way, companies need to make strategic decisions based on geography, manufacturing capability, GMP certification and cost to ensure their drug is being manufactured at the best site, or sites.
Of course, compliance with major regulators, including the FDA, EMA and other international bodies, and inspection readiness are important keys to success for any pharmaceutical manufacturer. As regulatory requirements are constantly changing, it’s important to stay up to date by participating in some of the pharma manufacturing & supply chain webinars listed below.
And when it comes to distributing finished drug products, more companies are making use of track and trace solutions to reduce the risk of product diversion and limit drug counterfeiting. The need for temperature-controlled shipping methods has also increased in recent years as more biologic products, like vaccines, have been approved which require specific environmental conditions to maintain their integrity.
