Biopharmaceutical Contract Research Organizations: Fueling the research of novel biologics

Biologics, often referred to as biopharmaceuticals or large molecules, are manufactured in the biological system, such as microorganisms, plants, or animal cells. Biologics represent one of the fastest growing segments of the pharmaceutical industry. This can be attributed to the rapid pace of innovation in this field, driven by the need for effective and personalized

Outlook for the contract manufacturing industry following the growing biologics pipeline

The recent years have portrayed the renaissance in the domain of biologics, as pharmaceutical industry has once again gained attention towards the production of bioproducts. In fact, in 2019, a total of 28 biopharmaceutical products (including monoclonal antibodies, recombinant proteins and gene therapies) were approved in the US. Further, over 8,000 biological pharmaceutical products are

Digital Biomarkers: Is Efficient Remote Monitoring of COVID-19 Patients Primary Reason for Incessant Rise in Demand?

Biomarkers or biological markers are distinctive physiological features in an individual, which can be detected and quantified in order to gain insights about health and disease. On the other hand, digital biomarkers are defined as digital means that are employed to collect data about these unique biomarkers. These are combination of hardware and software features,

Artificial Intelligence in Drug Discovery – Could help Reduce Significant Capital and Time Required

Drug discovery is a complex process which involves significant utilization of time and resources. As per several sources, on an average, the entire drug development process (from initial proof-of-concept to commercial launch) takes around 10-15 years and capital investments worth USD 4-10 billion to develop a drug from concept to commercial launch. The early stages

mRNA: the Higgs boson of modern medicine?

Messenger RNA (mRNA) is a single-stranded molecule, which is complementary to the DNA strands of a gene. It plays a prominent role in the process of protein synthesis, wherein mRNA is responsible for transferring genetic information from DNA to ribosomes, a specialized structure, or organelle, which decodes genetic information into a protein. In the last

Advancing Healthcare Delivery via Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence have demonstrated intelligent behavior through their ability to learn, communicate with its users and solve complex problems using highly sophisticated algorithms. AI-driven technologies have continued to evolve rapidly, with several industries increasingly deploying such solutions across key aspects of value chain. Furthermore, AI is also made with same idea of making tasks simpler
