Why New Jersey Should Be Your New Home For Pharma & Bio
In 1998 New Jersey had 80 biotechnology firms. Today there are over 350. The state is also home to 23 large pharmaceutical firms including Sanofi, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Merck, Johnson & Johnson, and Novartis, as well as numerous medical device companies. If you look at the life science industry as a whole, the U.S. Department of Labor lists more than 1,000 firms located in the state. While many states would be happy with those numbers, many in New Jersey, from the governor’s office on down, will tell you they want more. At the 2013 Bio International Conference, New Jersey representatives made it clear they will continue to do their best to solidify the state’s role as the largest pharmaceutical hub in the nation and third in biotechnology.

The FDA’s Clock Is Ticking – Why Those 15 Days Are Critical
When many companies respond to an FDA 483, they tend to address each specific violation in their response letter. Although they are addressing the individual complaints, they never actually get down to solving the underlying problems.
Developing a response letter that addresses the inspectional observations as well as the underlying problems has gotten more challenging. The agency is now putting more pressure on drug manufacturers to answer within 15 workdays after an inspection closes out. The clock is ticking, and your time is running out!
A Powerful Method To Develop Highly Concentrated Protein Formulations
Proteins perform an array of functions in living organisms, from structural scaffolds and signaling molecules to catalysts and cell-surface receptors. Structural perturbations and aberrant protein production are associated with many disease states, making these macromolecules potential candidates for pharmaceuticals. This strategy became a reality following the advent of recombinant DNA technologies, which allowed proteins to be produced on a large scale. Issues related to protein solubility can limit this approach, however, and drastically reduce the number of possible therapeutics that can be delivered to patients. “Solutions” to this problem are highly desirable.

Eight Best Practices Fir Compliant Essential Site Regulatory Documents
In the push to initiate clinical trials, activating sites is understandably the primary focus—leaving essential site regulatory documents as a secondary priority and a bit of a “necessary evil.” Indeed, most sponsors and CROs approach essential site regulatory documents as a check-the-box exercise.
