Pharmapack Webinar – Track & Trace: Challenges and opportunities for direct-to-patient delivery: Watch Now

This recently recorded CPHI Webinar in association with Pharmapack delves into the vitally important world of traceability of medicines and what the packaging industry is doing to address the issues of medication errors, security and drug wastage. Click the link above to access the on-demand session.

Providing a regulatory outlook, Nathalie Wardé, Chief Executive Officer, D4P pharma, said that with 50% of medication errors coming from dispensing and administration, improving traceability of medicines for direct-to-patient delivery is a must.

“Traceability is a global trend in healthcare B2B,” she said “Over the last seven to ten years, it has started to be a real concern for all the health authorities mainly to fight against counterfeit (or ‘falsified’) medicines or medical devices and to facilitate the recall process.”

Arguing the case for why global standards are needed across healthcare and providing an introduction to GS1 and Gs2 standards, Tania Snioch, Director Healthcare Operations, GS1 Global Office said that “never has a global, secure and efficient supply chain been more important than today,” citing the current pandemic situation.

“We’ve learned in these difficult times that global standards have a role to play; we’re all looking for an efficient supply chain that operates across countries and across continents and to have that, we need to be able to talk to each other in a language everybody understands,” she added. “ We need to be sure we’re talking about exactly the same products and it needs to be unambiguous; a global standard is the way to achieve that.”

Providing insights into the management of clinical supply chains, Pierre Fernandez-Barbereau, R&D Clinical Supply Chain Operations, Industrial Development, Sanofi, said that two key objectives are to ensure alignment between clinical demand and to design a clinical package in order to protect the dose and ensure the ‘blinding’ of the medicinal product.

“But the third objective, which is also the most important one, is to package on the production line and distribute throughout the world to clinical sites and patients, ensuring quality and traceability of these medicinal products,” he said.

    Clinical Development Success Rates and Contributing Factors 2011-2020

    Biologics have 9.1% likelihood of making it through the clinic to approval, compared to 5.7% for new molecular entities, according to this analysis of 10 years of Biomedtracker drug development data by BIO, Informa Pharma Intelligence and QLS, available for download here.

    Biologic products advance through clinical development with a higher success rate than traditional small molecules, a new analysis of clinical development success from Informa Pharma Intelligence, the Biotechnology Industry Organization and the Quantitative Life Sciences shows.

    “Biological complexity in drug modalities generally leads to higher LOA,” or likelihood of approval, the analysis concludes. New molecular entities – conventional small molecules – have a 5.7% chance of moving through all three phases of clinical trials to US Food and Drug Administration approval, while biologics had a 9.1% probability. Vaccines – with 10 times fewer candidates than other biologics – clocked in with a 9.7% chance of a Phase I candidate eventually gaining approval.

    Informa and BIO analyzed a decade of data collected by Informa’s Biomedtracker database, identifying 12,728 clinical phase transitions, which mark a program’s movement out of a clinical phase, commonly by advancement or suspension. QLS Advisors applied machine learning to “uncover underlying drivers of success” in the 9,704 clinical drug development programs included in the study, “Clinical Development Success Rates and Contributing Factors, 2011-2020,” published 17 February 2021.

    Overall, for all modalities, the LOA from Phase I was 7.9% for the 2011-2020 period.

  • Webinar Pharma Outlook 2021

    Featuring three speakers from leading market intelligence organisations, this webinar outlines the key trends and developments in the pharma sector to be aware of over the coming twelve months. Daniel Chancellor, Thought Leadership Director, Informa Pharma Intelligence, provided a snapshot of pharma pipeline activity during 2020, with oncology being the therapy area that continues to dominate clinical trial activity, with immune and central nervous system jockeying for second and third position.

    He also shone a light over the disruption that the COVID-19 pandemic has wrought over trials and the industry’s rapid response to the crisis in terms of developing both vaccines and therapeutics against the virus.

    “We have around three and a half thousand clinical trials initiated or planned against COVID-19 since the start of the year, with around 700 pipeline drugs and not to mention some of the repurposed efforts that have been run by academic groups, too,” he told the webinar.

    Sarah Rickwood, Vice President European Thought Leadership, IQVIA presented nine key issues that are going to drive change in 2021 and beyond, a blend of some directly accelerated by the current pandemic and others that were issues already in existence prior to the pandemic, “but are really going to see their full impact on changing the shape of pharma and health care in 2021 and beyond regardless.”

    She told the audience that the industry is actually dealing with three crises rather than one, and that the first half of the 2020s is likely to be flavoured by the pandemic and its consequences.

    “We have the infection crisis, which we hope will be addressed by the vaccines which have come through with such an amazing effort from the pharmaceutical industry,” she said, adding that the challenge is that the infection crisis has triggered two other crises which will stretch through 2021 and beyond.

    “The first is a crisis of healthcare systems, the non-COVID treatments of patients in healthcare systems have been delayed, changed and negatively impacted by the fact that healthcare systems have had to pivot to COVID treatment and addressing those patient backlogs which vary by country and by therapy area, is going to take a long period.”

    She also pointed to the beginning of the economic crisis, with really worrying drops in GDP in Q2: “The full impact of mass employment has yet to be realized and that will mean health care system budgets will be constrained. So at best I can say is that we’re not living in a post-pandemic environment in 2021, we're living in a vaccine plus environment.”

    And rounding off the webinar, Saman Kay, Solutions Consultant for Regulatory Intelligence at Clarivate Analytics, took a look at the future of drug manufacturing technology and assessed the opportunities and challenges of adopting continous manufacturing processes in place of traditional batch manufacturing.
