Whether companies are developing a biologic, pharmaceutical, or generic product, there are many challenges they face along the drug development journey. These challenges can include understanding and interpreting current requirements and expectations around combination products, complex drug development of sensitive molecules/biologics, navigating a variety of requirements for testing and compliance, and resource constraints. West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. now offers an Integrated Solutions Program that is designed to address these many challenges.

West combines 95 years of industry expertise in packaging and delivery with expert testing and regulatory support to help ensure that the right work is done the right way. With defined packages for Prescreen and Compatibility, Clinical Phase I, II and III, Lifecycle Management and Generics, West offer solutions at any stage of development, across all injectable formats. Integrating products and services into one package helps to:

• Reduce development and supply risk
