This Month’s Issue
The BioProcess International November 2015 issue focuses on Manufacturing. The cover features workers setting up a mixer at Bayer Healthcare (www.bayerhealthcare.com).
This special issue provides you with a unique interactive format to view,
experience, listen and discuss how these process technologies and scientific
applications and improve and/or solve your individual process challenges.
High costs and long timelines for biopharmaceutical development are cause for reflecting on how best to allocate resources from the earliest discovery stage through critical go–no-go junctures. With inputs ranging from science, engineering, and economics, the coined term developability becomes the synthesis of answers to such questions as How well does the target represent a disease state? Does manipulating that state bring about improvement? Does the molecule behave as expected in living systems? What can be done about the emergence of independent safety, toxicology, and/or immunogenicity warning signs? Can the molecule…
