Drug companies are exploring new technologies bringing to the forefront modern novel products revolutionizing the global and local approach to medicine. Widespread advancements in areas of personalized medicines and cell therapies, promising patient benefits, are being studied. Additionally, a number of blockbuster drugs’ patents are expiring allowing for the introduction of generic drugs and subsequent entry biologics. This places an increased importance on driving pipelines forward in an efficient manner taking into consideration the ever changing regulatory environment.
