Keeping Tumor Growth at Bay
Engineers at Washington University in St. Louis found a way to keep a cancerous tumor from growing by using nanoparticles of the main ingredient in common antacid tablets.
Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours
Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.
Future of Medicine Could be Found in a Tiny Crystal Ball
A Drexel University materials scientist has discovered a way to grow a crystal ball in a lab. Not the kind that soothsayers use to predict the future, but a microscopic version that could be used to encapsulate medication in a way that would allow it to deliver its curative payload more effectively inside the body.
Bile Acid Supports Production of Blood Stem Cells
A research group at Lund University has been able to show that bile acid is transferred from the mother to the foetus via the placenta to enable the foetus to produce blood stem cells.
Chemical Used to Replace BPA is Potentially Toxic
This study is the first to examine the effects of BPA and BPS on brain cells and genes that control the growth and function of organs involved in reproduction.
A Better Model for Parkinson's
Scientists at EPFL solve a longstanding problem with modeling Parkinson’s disease in animals. Using newfound insights, they improve both cell and animal models for the disease, which can propel research and drug development.
Improving Delivery of Poorly Soluble Drugs Using Nanoparticles
A technology that could forever change the delivery of drugs is undergoing evaluation by the Technology Evaluation Consortium™ (TEC). Developed by researchers at Northeastern University, the technology is capable of creating nanoparticle structures that could deliver drugs into the bloodstream orally – despite the fact that they are normally poorly soluble.
Toxicity Testing With Cultured Liver Cells
Microreactor replaces animal testing.
Neural Networks Adapt to the Presence of a Toxic HIV Protein
HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) afflict approximately half of HIV infected patients.
Faster Drug Discovery?
Startup develops more cost-effective test for assessing how cells respond to chemicals.

Five Keys to Reducing Time-to-Market
Bookmark and Share

Vetter Pharma International GmbH

With development times measured in years, increasing costs represent a major challenge confronting pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. As a result, reducing time-to-market is an essential component in any business strategy, particularly when the end of patent protection is considered. One solution is to partner with a contract manufacturer that provides intelligent concepts and the proper experience, not only with respect to the production itself, but also with regulatory authorities. Planning early on is crucial to speeding up the time-to-market process.

According to Benjamin Franklin’s famous quote in Poor Richard’s Almanac, “Time is money”. The American hero of the revolution, scientist and sage illustrated his point with an example involving ten shillings and six pence. Had Franklin been writing about today’s pharmaceutical industry, he might have been tempted to underscore his advice to do justice to the substantial sums involved – up to $1 million daily in the later stages of developing a new drug.
