Recent Advances To Improve Chemical Development in the Pharmaceutical Industry

In the pharmaceutical industry today, several challenges exist in chemical development, including:

  • Improve Chemical DevelopmentDevelopment costs continue to increase
  • Synthetic targets increasing in complexity
  • Increased regulatory demands
  • High attrition rate
  • Cost pressures due to high manufacturing costs and lower payer costs
  • Major patent expiries
  • Cost competitive R&D

As pressures on the pharmaceutical industry increase, new methods of working are required.  A new guide – Recent Advances to Improve Chemical Development – discusses the challenges in chemical development today and how to address the challenges. Four ways to improve organic synthesis and the resulting reduction of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) costs are described.
