W hy are the gates of the sheep pen wide open to invite the wolf in? The question may seem exaggerated, but it is raised by the admission of Teva Pharmaceutical Industries into the major American professional organisation of pharmaceutical companies, PhRMA (Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America) on 15 July...Biosimilars become reality

The European serialization project has proved to be one of the main factors leading the main CMOs to embark upon new customer service strategies. The implementation of the European serialization project and more broadly of the regulatory directives for serialization at the international level require massive investments, the implementation of complex techniques and an extremely rigorous operational organization.
