May 2020

In the next issue of Pharma Technology Focus, we take a look back at mumps treatments in England following reports that the number of cases in the country is set to reach heights not seen in a decade, find out what happened to the whistleblowers that spread early warnings during past epidemics, and speak to CPP development company Peptomyc about its approach to cancer treatment.

Plus, we explore ways that pharma can be reformed to help tackle the threat of climate change-related health issues, investigate the safety of inactive pharma ingredients, and ask if spin-out companies are set to become a more regular feature in pharma.

Also, we find out about a topical gene therapy that waves goodbye to needles, and take a look at a drug development playbook compiled by data analytics platform Signals Analytics.
