traditional positioning of the cmo
Traditional positioning of the CMO

“Not so long ago, big pharmaceutical companies turned to CMOs solely to supply:

  • cost efficiencies
  • capacity
  • time-to-market
  • expertise not available in-house”

traditional relationship
Pharmaceutical Cie.

Owns the know-how

Manages technology transfer

Needs short term capacity:

Unexpected sales

Launch quantities

Limit risk on new technologies

Contract Manufacturer

Limited know-how

Minimum involvement in transfer

Provides manufacturing capacity:

Equipment

Labour

Specific technology

New trend in Contract Manufacturing

“Companies are outsourcing to concentrate on marketing their products”

“Spending less time in drug discovery and manufacturing”

“Virtual companies exist by the simple fact that they can rely on the contract manufacturers and researchers”

threats
Threats
  • Emerging countries like India and soon China will provide low cost products that will meet cGMP’s
  • The old business model will not sustain growth for North American CMO’s
  • The new business model is more complex and requires different skills

can we make the difference
Can we make the difference?

The battle will be fought on the technical field:

  • Technological Challenge
  • Latest technology ?
  • Scalable process equipment
  • Validation
  • Compliance to cGMP’s
  • Documentation
  • Project management
  • Don’t forget SHE !
technological challenges
Technological challenges
  • The need to keep pace with next-generation process technology becomes more challenging.
  • In the case of many emerging pharmaceutical products, the challenge is to make viable commercial production possible at all.
  • COM’s need to invest in technology and people
latest technology
Latest technology ?
  • We need to stay aware of new technology development
  • Sometimes old technology is the best option…
  • Staff from R&D, Validation, Production and Maintenance must be trained and have as much exposure to information about new technology as possible
scalable process equipment
Scalable process equipment
  • New business often starts at lab or pilot scale
  • Clients prefer to scale-up without having to change manufacturing site
  • Equipment selection can improve chances of attracting new business
validation
Validation
  • The need for small scale cGMP batches has increased so R&D equipment needs to be qualified (IQ/OQ).
  • Cleaning validation is one of the biggest challenges for a CMO since dedicating equipment is not economical.
  • Change control procedures must be closely followed.
compliance to cgmp s
Compliance to cGMP’s
  • Most clients intend to market product world wide
  • Quality system must meet regulation in multiple markets plus clients internal standards
  • Other clients rely on CMO’s quality system since they don’t have internal resources
documentation
Documentation
  • New projects start at pre-clinical stage
  • Process is improved along the way
  • Batches are made for development, scale-up, stability, clinical trials and process validation
  • PAI may occur years later
  • Good documentation practices must be followed at all times (even if clients do not request it explicitly)
project management
Project management
  • New projects involve many organisations
  • All functions from all partners will get involved at one time or an other
  • Project scope will evolve and scope changes must be managed carefully
  • CMO’s are becoming technical expertise providers and they must behave accordingly
don t forget she
Don’t forget SHE !

Safety Health and Environment must always be kept in mind:

  • Clients may outsource hazardous processes
  • Large firms have very strict SHE requirements
  • The hazards of handling multiple processes involving new chemicals must be evaluated
  • New drugs are more and more potent

“No one can afford a serious SHE incident”

in conclusion
In conclusion
  • Contract Manufacturing Organisations will have to adapt to a new business environment
  • Successful CMO’s will be the ones with the strongest technical staff capable of participating in multidisciplinary project teams
  • ISPE members will benefit from those opportunities
