• Development And Validation Of Human Chemokine Assays

    The chemokine system belongs to a large family of inflammatory cytokines and receptors. Approximately 50 chemokines and 20 receptors have been identified and shown to play a critical role in tumor growth, inflammatory response, infection, autoimmune disorders, neoplasm, vascular diseases, and transplant rejection (Locati et al. 2005, Slettenaar and Wilson 2006).

  • Inaccurate Forecasting Is Here To Stay: Focus On Managing Risk Instead

    The single most important factor influencing pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical decisions is demand forecasting. Forecasts impact decisions regarding capital cost, outsourcing for product commercialization, and many other critical aspects of production. It’s no secret that drug forecasts are notoriously incorrect, and often by large margins. John LaMattina, former president of Pfizer Global R&D, foresees no improvement in forecasting accuracy. How then, do companies minimize risk?

  • The Right Biomanufacturing Partner Can Improve Flexibility And Mitigate Risks From Forecasting

    While forecasts can never be 100% accurate, the goal for biopharmaceutical forecasters should be to minimize the degree of inaccuracies as much as possible. To reduce the impact of inaccurate forecasting over the life cycle of a product, companies need to focus on those variables that they have the most control over.

  • Challenges, Risks And Strategies For Biologic Substance Manufacturing

    From discussions with pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry leaders, it is clear that demand forecasting is a significant challenge when planning biologic drug substance production.

  • Advancing Safety and Efficacy Studies with Novel Surgical Applications

    Novel therapeutics such as gene and cell therapies, nanoparticles, and combination products requiring targeted delivery,  novel treatments for wound healing, cardiovascular disease, and bone regeneration,  and new medical device technologies call for innovative surgical procedures in preclinical trials to determine safety and efficacy.
