Pharmaceutical manufacturing is one of the biggest industries that produce effective solutions for the numerous health disorders faced by the mankind. It provides an efficient cure for several infectious diseases, cardiovascular diseases and sexually transmitted diseases. It also develops vaccines and antibodies to protect the human beings and provide resistance from various health defects. The development of various veterinary medicines by the pharmaceutical manufacturing industries has helped the prevention of diseases in the animals that can be transmitted to the human beings. Every year, numerous compounds are thoroughly tested and extensive research is carried on for the development of effective medicines that can cure the newly emerged diseases.
The research work is undertaken on a very large scale, but only around 100 new medicines are produced every year. Huge sums of money are invested in the research process for development of medicines and the machineries used in the research and production process. Pharmaceutical manufacturing is a time-taking process that starts from research for new medicines to the commercialization of the developed medicines. The initial step is to found out the chemical substances having therapeutic characters that can prevent against the fatal diseases and eradicate the health problems from the root. The compounds are then tested to prove their therapeutic characteristics and later tested on various animals.
If the developed medicines are able to pass all the tests performed on animals, trials are done using human beings and then the medicines are released for the commercial purpose. Hence, it takes long time to develop a new medicine. The pharmaceutical manufacturing plants are actively involved in the production of efficient medicines.
