1 Overview of Pharmaceutical Technology and Education Areas: Industrialization Pharmaceutical Technology Manufacturing Science Pharmaceutical Engineering Education
2 The Pipeline Problem Despite the most sophisticated drug discovery methods and the largest expenditures ever, fewer new drugs are reaching the market Last year only 20 (not 50) New Molecular Entities reached the market This is termed “the pipeline problem” New technologies for bringing Molecules to Market are needed Pharmaceutical Technology will achieve this goal
10 Amlodipine Industrialization Initially the maleate salt was made Maleate salt had a biologically active degradation product Switched to besylate salt late in development Amlodipine besylate (Norvasc is the most successful heart drug ever developed)
11 Status of Pharmaceutical Technology HISTORICAL DATA DERIVED FROM TRIAL-N-ERROR EXPERIMENTATION HEURISTIC RULES “Rules of Thumb” EMPIRICAL MODELS MECHANISTIC MODELS Rules Current Level of Knowledge Desired Level of Knowledge
12 Tools and Strategies Approaches to dealing with problem compounds Product design concept and quality by design Predictive capabilities Solubility Bioavailability Stability FDA – predictive capabilities could save $100 million per drug
14 Critical Path Dimensions Lack of trained personnel Few educational programs Very little fundamental research on pharmaceutical materials
15 Key Concepts Improve quality 1. Know what you have 2. Make the same thing every time (within the design space) Reduce costs Cost of goods sold is up to $80 billion dollars A 20% reduction leaves $16 billion to discover new drugs or reduce costs
16 Educational Strategies Pharmaceutical Engineering Molecules to Market educational strategy Allen Chao GMP Center Regulatory Programs National GMP Curriculum
17 Outcomes More drugs on market Reduced time to market Improved quality Reduced costs of drugs
19 Dimensions of the Pipeline Problem Patient deaths and unfavorable outcomes because of delays in marketing new drugs At least $100,000,000 per drug under development ($2-4 billion per year)
20 Pipeline Problem - Related Issues Higher risk manufacturing processes (variability is two sigma not six sigma) Reduced flexibility in manufacturing Major manufacturing problems and issues Disastrous CMC inspections by the FDA
21 Pipeline Problem - Related Issues Significance /Insignificance of Validation Is validation just a well rehearsed demonstration lacking any significant value? Difficulty in scaling up Numerous bridging bioequivalence studies Insufficient size and personnel in existing centers and programs to address these issues
