Implementation of the productdefinition
to new maketable products


Development & Licensing

Development describes the process from translating the product definition via technical and clinical studies to an approvable and marketable product.

This process includes:

  • The technical experiments search for a suitable formulation (mixture of active pharmaceutical ingredients and excipients)
  • The development and validation of suitable analytical methods for quality control
  • The real-time stability testing of the formulation in the designated primary packaging
  • The proof of the ability to produce on a commercial scale
  • The investigation of preclinical data on adverse effects (toxicity) in animals and distribution in the body (pharmacokinetics or bioequivalence) of healthy subjects
  • The collection of clinical data on effectiveness in patients
