The Pharma industry is still assimilating the late 1990s wave of drug discovery technologies that are bringing about a powerful convergence of molecular biology, miniaturization, and materials and information technologies. Computer and chip technologies have given thousands of scientists the human genome as a bench tool, an opportunity unthinkable just 10 years ago. Scientists already have a publicly available catalog of 1.8 million single nucleotide polymorphisms to work with, and geometric expansion of proteomics research and technologies will create multiples of the existing data volume. The convergence of information technology and biology may well be the biggest story in biotechnology over the next decade. As we learn more about the cascades of reactions essential to disease and health, in silico modeling and testing will become more refined, perhaps alleviating some of the bottlenecks characteristic of wet biology.

The biotechnology era has experienced significant changes in the number of companies involved in vaccine manufacturing as well as in the production systems they use. Nevertheless, challenges in this area are multiple. In the current vaccine-manufacturing environment, time to market and cost effectiveness are key issues that need to be addressed in addition to smooth R&D and clinical studies. Furthermore, scale up and safety are important for maintaining a successful manufacturing process. As a result, state-of-the-art technologies to simplify vaccine development and manufacturing are becoming ever-more crucial
Vaccine development was discussed as important for global security at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January 2015. The first draft of the US House of Representatives “21st Century Cures” initiative includes actions to speed up vaccine approval and coverage. Proposals seek to tighten timelines for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to recommend new vaccines, for FDA to expedite vaccine exports, and for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to advance vaccine development. Researchers are looking for formulations that reduce cold-chain requirements, methods to boost process yield, and new approaches to document product quality.

The concept of BE has been accepted worldwide by the pharmaceutical industry and national regulatory authorities for over 20 years and is applied to new as well as generic products. As a result, thousands of high-quality generic drugs at reduced costs have become available in every corner of the globe. The assessment of BE is not a simple issue, however, and much of the research has been done in recent years to develop new and more effective approaches to the assessment of BE.
Since then, and after turn of the century, tremendous advancements have been made by the FDA and other regulatory authorities (national, international, and supranational), and by industry and academia in the area of assessment of bioequivalence. Currently approaches to determine BE of pharmaceutical products has been largely standardized. This has occurred due to discussion and consensus reached among various stakeholders at numerous national and international meetings, conferences, and workshops.
The pharmaceutical firms all over the world are burning the candle at both ends for attainment of market authorizations in various nations.
Bioethics can evaluate global justice by weighing human rights theory and future innovation at the macro level, and by addressing market forces and responsibilities at the micro level. Inherent structural features of pharmaceuticals, such as its reliance on research and development, cause the industry to employ pricing strategies that seem counter-intuitive to conventional wisdom, but that result in producing a just allocation as defined by market forces.
