Overview Industry Overview:

Biopharmaceuticals, also known as biologics, in simplest terms are pharmaceuticals derived from biological sources. The synthesis of recombinant insulin in 1982 was the first commercial breakthrough in this field, and the field has grown exponentially since then. Today, biopharmaceuticals are used to treat a number of chronic diseases that cannot be managed effectively with any other treatment, including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, Crohn’s disease, and certain cancers.

Many biopharmaceuticals are synthesized through recombinant DNA designed to be nearly identical to our natural signalers, or are custom-designed antibodies that offer an essential boost to our immune system. Biopharmaceuticals are currently at the forefront of biomedical and biotechnological research. As new discoveries continue to be made, scientists are also hard at work to make production processes more efficient and cost-effective.
