Quality by Design for Biologics and Biosimilars
The author provides an overview of QbD implmentation for biopharmaceuticals.


Pharmaceutical Technology
Volume 35, Issue 3, pp. 64-68

Conclusion

The economics of developing and commercializing follow-on biologics, in particular in Asia, necessitate that manufacturers cannot merely replicate process and product development practices that have been established at US and European manufacturers. The raised expectations of the regulatory agencies, as represented by the PAT and ICH guidelines, will need to be met. For QbD implementation, the next decade is likely to witness an evolution into a more cost-efficient approach, driven by innovation in the areas mentioned herein and beyond.
