Attention Heightens on Creating an Independent Regulatory Pathway for Introducing Novel Excipients

IPQ’s five part series is exploring the need for: ● a more qualified-for-purpose excipient toolbox that can help address the formulation, quality, and manufacturing challenges posed by a new generation of medicines, and ● a regulatory process that can better accommodate novel excipients.

IPQ Monthly Update – December 2019 in Review

The December issue explores the collaborative efforts in which industry and regulators are now engaged to address the challenges of assuring the quality and availability of medicines across an increasingly globalized supply chain.
