The pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical development and manufacturing market continue to experience significant expansion as the development of small molecule drugs and more complex large-molecule biologics rival for attention. Small and midsize pharma/biotech companies
are leading drug discovery and the engagement 
of contract development and manufacturing organizations (CDMOs) helps them to improve capabilities and enable companies to compete 
in this dynamic market.

Strengthening CDMOs to Meet Industry Needs For 2016 And Beyond


As published in Pharma's Almanac Q1 2016.

Outsourcing companies pursuing an integrated services model aim to facilitate drug development and commercialization for drug sponsors by enabling them to work with a single partner for activities that often require multiple, specialized vendors.

With a single qualified partner, pharma companies can have simplified access to integrated analytical, development, manufacturing and packaging services, as well as a broad range of dose form manufacturing and similar services. Some contract development and manufacturing organizations (CDMOs) offer both API and drug product manufacture, while others offer formulation development and clinical supply manufacture to complement their commercial production operations. Regardless, the aim is to provide a seamless supply chain solution.

Bolstering Capabilities For Parenteral Drug Development and Manufacturing


As published in Pharma's Almanac Q4 2015.

As the pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets undergo significant changes, companies are relying more heavily on CROs and CMOs to provide the needed services, expertise, and technologies to help them favorably compete in a challenging marketplace. Contract service providers, in turn, are strengthening their capabilities to satisfy current demands, in some cases by coming together. An example is the recent combining of AAIPharma and Cambridge Major Laboratories, forming a full-service global CDMO supplying drug substance and drug product development, manufacturing, testing, and packaging services. This coupling also supports drug sponsors facing the escalating challenges of developing and manufacturing parenteral drug products.
