Jiben and his wife Rita (Mithu) are the parents of three daughters, Writtika, Wrijoya, and Wrishija. edu 1 Introduction Learning objective This introductory chapter provides students with a description of pharmaceutical science and its major components: pharmaceuticals and the pharmaceutical industry. There is a discussion of the gradual development of the industry, its multidisciplinary nature, its economics and technology, its impact on global health, and its ethical nature. Some pharmaceutical industries and their contributions to human life expectancy around the globe are briefly presented.
Research data suggest there is a correlation between life expectancy and the development of the pharmaceutical industry. Using aggregate time series data, Dr Frank R. Lichtenberg, a researcher at Columbia University, studied the impact of new drug approval by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on US lifespan longevity. 13). 13 Life expectancy in more and less developed regions of the USA, 1950/55–1995/2000 Source: Frank R. 14). 15). The effect that drugs have in countering disease is exemplified by data on HIV/AIDS cases.
22 shows the expenditure of US biopharmaceutical companies on R&D from 2004 to 2009. As a result, the US FDA approved 34 new drugs and biologics in 2009 and more than 2,000 medicines are in the development pipeline. 3 billion on R&D in 2008,19 which is almost 30% of total pharmaceutical sales. This was more than £10 million per day, and on average the investment in pharmaceutical R&D has been greater than investments on R&D of other British manufacturing sectors. Investment on pharmaceutical R&D in other countries, especially the fast growing Asian countries such as China, India, Singapore, and Korea, is also encouraging.
