Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API)
Active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) are at the very heart of modern medicine, and form the basis for much of the effective and innovative treatments in place and under development.
APIs are regulated by some of the most rigorous and stringent legislation ever passed. Compliance with these strictures and with best industrial, clinical and manufacturing practices is an absolute necessity for any actor in the pharmaceutical products supply chain. Quality assurance, clinical trials and in-use assessment are all key parameters for the various stakeholders to review.
