In 2018 FDA has approved 34 new drugs which are presently in the market. Each year, CDER approves series of new drugs and biological products. Some of these products are often innovative new products that never before have been used in clinical practice. FDA’s classification of a drug as an “NME” for review purposes is distinct from FDA’s determination of whether a drug product is a “new chemical entity” or “NCE” within the meaning of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. According to Medscape the ratio of researched drugs to eventually approved therapies at between 5,000-to-1 and 10,000-to-1. Nonetheless, if a drug manages to gain FDA approval, the cumulative direct and indirect expenses are huge. As per estimated study performed by a well-known university, the true cost to bring a drug to market was US$2.56 billion. This figure is inclusive of just shy of $1.4 billion in average out-of-pocket costs to the drug developer, as well as $1.16 billion in time costs, which are essentially the expected returns that investors forgo while a drug is in development.

“The Quality cannot be tested into the product, but it should be built into it.” QbD can be attributed as a Scientific, risk-based, holistic and proactive approach to the development of a pharmaceutical product. It is more of a deliberate design effort from product conception through commercialization requiring full understanding of how product attributes and process would relate to product performance. In FDA’s Office of New Drug Quality Assessment (ONDQA), a new risk-based pharmaceutical quality assessment system (PQAS) was established based on the application of product and process understanding. The difference between QbD for NDA and ANDA products is most apparent at the first step of the process. For an NDA, the target product profile is under development while for the ANDA product the target product profile is well established by the labeling and clinical studies conducted to support the approval of the reference product.

Chromatography and MS are extensively used in the formulation development stage of generic drug products. The ICH Q3B guidelines address the reporting threshold, identification threshold, and qualification threshold for impurities in the drug product. Chromatography (LC) and Gas Chromatography (GC) are extensively used to analyze stable compounds. However, for labile compounds require derivatization prior to LC or GC analysis. For certain selected analyses, Liquid Chromatography- Ultraviolet Detection (LC-UVD) and Gas Chromatography-Flame Ionization Detection (GC-FID) techniques may be deemed suitable. However, Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS) and Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) are usually the techniques of choice when higher specificity and sensitivity are required. Gas Chromatography-Electron Capture Detection (GC-ECD) techniques are commonly used for halogenated PGIs/GIs to enhance sensitivity and selectivity. Occasionally, some spectroscopic techniques like Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), light scattering, and Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) are used in analyzing PGIs/GIs.

Non-prescription medicines, commonly known as over the counter or OTC medicines, are used for treatment. Sales of over the counter medicines in pharmacy and grocery outlets reached £1268 5 million in 1994 about a third of the NHS drugs bill of C3 6 billion. In the late 1980s the government fuelled the over the counter market by making it easier to reclassify certain medicines from prescription only status to allow over the counter sale in pharmacies. Although all non-prescription medicines are required to hold a product licence, few have been evaluated in formal clinical trials in the setting in which they will be used. As a result many non-prescription products sold by pharmacists have been criticised for their lack of effectiveness. There are three legal categories of medicines prescription only medicine (POM), pharmacy medicine (P), and general sales list medicine (GSL); the last can be sold from outlets including supermarkets and drugstores. The principle of a class of medicines whose sale requires the supervision of a pharmacist is not unique to the United Kingdom.

International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9000 requirements do not have the same status of “the law” in the U.S. as do requirements listed in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Because 21 CFR 210 and 211 have legal status, the U.S. Justice Department has extensive powers to ensure compliance. For example, product in the marketplace can be seized, fines can be levied, and personal liability can be assigned. So, management must understand that auditing must be taken seriously, and the requirements listed are just that – requirements. While audits are the common place in the pharmaceutical industry, the preparedness for those events varies. The companies that develop a risk-based approach to audits are able to remain competitive while meeting quality and government compliance standards on a regular basis. Conversely, the companies that have not implemented strong processes are putting themselves at risk for non-compliance. According to the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, “Registered domestic drug establishments shall be inspected by the FDA at least once every two years.” Under some conditions the inspections may be even more frequent, As regulations become more stringent, regulatory authorities are likely to step up audits which is even more reason for companies to be prepared.

A biopharmaceutical, otherwise called a biologic therapeutic item or biologic, is any restorative item made in, extricated from, or semi orchestrated from organic sources. Not quite the same as synthetically incorporated pharmaceuticals, they incorporate immunizations, blood, or blood segments, allergenic, substantial cells, quality treatments, tissues, recombinant restorative protein, and living cells utilized as a part of cell treatment. Biologics can be made out of sugars, proteins, or nucleic acids or complex mixes of these substances, or might live cells or tissues. They are confined from normal sources—human, creature, or microorganism. Phrasing encompassing biopharmaceuticals fluctuates amongst gatherings and elements, with various terms alluding to various subsets of therapeutics inside the general biopharmaceutical class. Some administrative offices utilize the terms natural restorative items or remedial organic item to allude particularly to designed macromolecular items like protein-and nucleic acid–based drugs, recognizing them from items like blood, blood segments, or antibodies, which are typically extricated specifically from a natural source Gene-based and cell biologics, for instance, frequently are at the front line of biomedical research, and might be utilized to treat an assortment of therapeutic conditions for which no different medications are accessible.

With more stringent compliance parameters set by the USFDA the quality assurance of pharmaceutical products is ensured. In addition to cGMP, GLP and GCP practices as per the US Federal law pharma products should comply with 21CFR regulations. Also on a regular basis the FDA organizes compliance programs for the pharma industries in program areas like Biologics (CBER), Bioresearch Monitoring (BIMO), Devices/Radiological Health (CDRH), Drugs (CDER), Food and Cosmetics (CFSAN), Veterinary Medicine (CVM). The results of regulatory audits NAI – No Action Indication, VAI – Voluntary Actions Indicated, OAI – Official FDA Action Indicated are also critical to decide by auditors in regards to compliance matters and call for several challenges to overcome by the manufacturers.

Two powerful megatrends — dramatic deceleration in U.S. market growth and significant restructuring of the healthcare system — are at play in the U.S. pharmaceuticals industry. The U.S. pharmaceutical market is the world’s most important national market. Together with Canada and Mexico, it represents the largest continental pharma market worldwide. The United States alone holds over 45 percent of the global pharmaceutical market. In 2016, this share was valued around 446 billion U.S. dollars. The biopharmaceutical companies in the United States exported goods in the amount of some 31 billion U.S. dollars during 2016. In the United States, there are an estimated 100,000 OTC drug products marketed and sold in a variety of outlets, such as pharmacies and convenience stores. TH revenue for the OTC drugs also add to the pharma market growth. Top markets for pharmaceutical products continue to be developed countries in Western Europe, East Asia, and North America with high per capita spending on healthcare, growing elderly populations, and advanced regulatory systems. Though ranked lower, there are growing opportunities in developing countries like China as incomes and healthcare spending increases. The pharmaceutical sector has consistently been one of the most R&D intensive industries in the United States. The research-based industry generally allocates around 15 to 20 percent of revenues to R&D activities and invests over $50 billion on R&D annually.
