Little knowledge of raw materials, how much do you know?

APIs are an important part of the pharmaceutical industry and refer to chemical or biological substances used to manufacture medicines, usually the active ingredients in pharmaceutical preparations. APIs are the core and foundation of drug manufacturing, and their quality is directly related to the quality and efficacy of drugs.
The source of raw materials can be natural products or chemical synthesis. Natural products include plants, animals, and microorganisms. For example, the raw material salicylic acid of aspirin can be extracted from poplar bark; the raw materials of some antibiotics can be isolated from microorganisms. Chemically synthesized raw materials are obtained through artificial synthesis of chemical substances, such as vitamin C raw materials are obtained through artificial synthesis.
The manufacture of APIs needs to follow a series of quality standards and regulations to ensure their quality and purity. Pharmaceutical companies need to carry out the procurement, storage, transportation, testing and quality control of APIs to ensure the safety and effectiveness of APIs. Among them, the detection of raw materials is a very important link, which usually needs to be detected and analyzed by various analytical techniques such as high performance liquid chromatography, gas chromatography, and nuclear magnetic resonance.
The supply chain of APIs is an important link in pharmaceutical manufacturing. In today's globalization, the procurement and supply of raw materials has gone beyond national borders and involves many countries and regions. Some countries have become major producers of raw materials due to low labor costs and loose environmental regulations, while others have become major consumers of raw materials.
First of all, the quality of raw materials has a crucial impact on the quality and efficacy of drugs. Only by using high-quality raw materials can we produce medicines with stable quality and significant efficacy. Therefore, it is very important to choose a high-quality API supplier.
Second, the R&D and production of APIs are critical to drug innovation. The research and development of pharmaceuticals requires a lot of time and resources, and high-quality raw materials are an indispensable part of the research and development process. Only with high-quality raw materials can we launch more competitive drugs.
In addition, the reliable supply of raw materials is also one of the focuses of pharmaceutical companies. The production of pharmaceuticals requires a large amount of raw materials, and a stable supply chain is an important guarantee for pharmaceutical companies to stabilize production and improve efficiency. Having a reliable API supplier can reduce the risk and cost of the enterprise and improve the competitiveness of the enterprise.
However, APIs also have some problems and challenges. One of them is the price volatility and supply instability of APIs. Due to the long supply chain of raw materials and complex links, the price and supply are affected by various factors, such as market demand, policy changes, weather, natural disasters, etc., so the price and supply fluctuate greatly. In addition, the production process of some raw materials may involve environmental pollution and energy consumption, which requires pharmaceutical companies and the government to strengthen management and supervision.
In conclusion, raw materials are an indispensable and important part of the pharmaceutical industry, and their quality and supply have a crucial impact on the quality and efficacy of drug manufacturing. A good API supplier can provide pharmaceutical companies with a stable supply chain and good products and services, and provide strong support for the development and competition of the company.

Downgraded diagnostic criteria for hypertension, and a sudden increase of 240 million patients

On November 13, my country's newly released "Clinical Practice Guidelines for Hypertension in China" (hereinafter referred to as "Guidelines") lowered the diagnostic criteria for hypertension: the original diagnostic criteria for hypertension was 140/90mmHg, and the revised one was ≥130/90mmHg. 80mmHg. In other words, the "healthy" people whose blood pressure was between 130/80 mmHg and 140/90 mmHg will completely become hypertensive patients today. Perhaps, there are not a few friends who have been "successful". A study published in 2019 showed that there are as many as 243 million people in this group in China. In the field of hypertension treatment, blockbuster drugs have always been released frequently. So, what impact will the lowering of the diagnostic criteria have on the market?
