Pharmaceuticals & Biologics

Pharmaceutical products refer to all biological and drug candidates, existing chemical compounds or products being researched (new chemical entity: NCE per section 505b of the US Food, Drug & Cosmetic Act).  These products are developed, manufactured, packaged, labeled, stored, tested and distributed in compliance with Good Manufacturing Practices requirements under applicable country law, including those relating to investigational and clinical use.

Biologics (biosimilars for generic form) are special class of pharmaceuticals that have been produced from or contain components of living organisms such as sugars, proteins, nucleic acids, or a combination of these substances. They include a wide range of products such as vaccines, gene therapy, allergenics, and recombinant therapeutic proteins and may be used for the treatment of medical conditions for which no other treatments are available.

The aseptic manufacture, characterization, control and stability of these active substances is critical to human safety.  AXSource consultant have hands-on knowledge, expertise and experience in the development and commercialization of these products. These products have included blood, blood-products e.g. artificial blood substitute, novel vaccines, oncology products etc.
