Drug discovery is a process, which aims at identifying a compound therapeutically useful in treating and curing a disease. Typically a drug discovery effort addresses a biological target that has been shown to play a role in the development of the disease or starts from a molecule with interesting biological activities.
The process of drug discovery involves the identification of candidates, synthesis, characterization, screening, and assays for therapeutic efficacy. Once a compound has shown its value in these tests, it will begin the process of drug development prior to clinical trials. Drug discovery and development is an expensive process due to the high costs of R&D and human clinical tests. The average total cost per drug development varies from US$ 897 million to US$ 1.9 billion. The typical development time is 10-15 years. In the past most drugs have been discovered either by identifying the active ingredient from traditional remedies or by serendipitous discovery. At present a new approach is being tried to understand how disease and infection are controlled at the molecular and physiological level and to target specific entities based on this knowledge.

Each year many new prescription drugs are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The process of developing and bringing new drugs to market is important for primary care physicians to understand. A drug must undergo rigorous testing prior to marketing to and medical use by the general public. The process starts with preclinical testing. For drugs that appear safe, an investigational new drug application is filed with the FDA. If approved, clinical trials begin with phase 1 studies that focus on safety and pharmacology. Phase 2 studies examine the effectiveness of the compound. Phase 3 is the final step before submitting a new drug application (NDA) to the FDA. An NDA contains all the information obtained during all phases of testing. Phase 4 studies, or postmarketing studies, are conducted after a product is approved. Recent changes in legislation have streamlined the approval process. Critics contend that these changes have compromised public safety, resulting in the need to recall several products from the market. Proponents claim that changes in the approval process help patients with debilitating diseases, such as acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, that were previously denied critical medication because of bureaucratic regulations.

Quality is always an imperative prerequisite when we consider any product. Therefore, drugs must be manufactured to the highest quality levels. End-product testing by itself does not guarantee the quality of the product. Quality assurance techniques must be used to build the quality into the product at every step and not just tested for at the end. In pharmaceutical industry, Process Validation performs this task to build the quality into the product because according to ISO 9000:2000, it had proven to be an important tool for quality management of pharmaceuticals.
Quality cannot be adequately assured by in-process and finished inspections and testing but it should be built in to the manufacturing process. These processes should be controlled in order that the finished product meets all quality specifications. Validation is one of the important steps in achieving and maintaining the quality of the final product. If each step of production process is validated we can assure that the final product is of the best quality. Validation of the individual steps of the processes is called the process validation. Different dosage forms have different validation protocols. Process Validation is one of the important steps in achieving and maintaining the quality of final product. It gives a higher degree of assurance.

A huge conflict has arisen between companies producing generic, more affordable drugs, and the big pharmaceutical companies. The multi-billion dollar companies from the pharmaceutical industry are claiming to be the holders of intellectual property rights for producing certain drugs. They are putting in their entire might to stop the production of generic drugs as it could cause a serious dent in their deep pockets.
The Big Pharma companies brand the drugs that they produce and sell them at exorbitant rates. Their claim that they need to be making profit to finance further research in the field of medicine is understandable. However, what needs to be curbed is the corporate avarice of these Big Pharma companies. The generic drug producing companies are using the exact same composition and formulas used to produce branded drugs for a fraction of the input cost, and thereby, are able to sell the drugs without any brand name at much affordable rates.
