March 2019

In the next issue of Pharma Technology Focus, we find out why there is currently no supply of the pink Migraleve over-the-counter migraine tablets – which contain buclizine to relieve nausea on the onset of migraine – in the UK, explore the potential of modifying non-toxic nano-material from corn into active ingredients for targeted drug delivery, imaging or diagnostics, and examine how machine learning is helping to accelerate research into personalised medicines and rare diseases.

Also, we take a look at Scotland’s pharmaceutical industry and what needs to happen for the country to maintain its status as an industry leader, and examine how thermostabilised viral vaccines can help ensure the optimal potency of vaccines in developing countries.

Plus, we explore what biotech’s biggest ever IPO tells us about drug manufacturing and check on the outlook for CRISPR gene editing technology at this important juncture.
