Past event: Highly Potent Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients 2020 Conference

Highly Potent Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients 2020 Conference will be remote access only. In order to attend this event PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED on the ASDEvents website, which is subject to final approval by the conference organizer.

We are delighted to announce its 4th Annual Highly Potent Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients conference coming to London on the 11th-12th May 2020.

The increasing demand for medicines that target diseases more effectively and with fewer side effects is leading HPAPI market expansion with a CAGR of 10.3%. It is forecasted that by 2024, the HPAPI oncology market will be worth close to $100 billion.

As such, these highly potent substances predispose workers to higher risks of exposure and consequently, need to be manufactured according to strict criteria. Limiting exposure has become one of the biggest hurdles of the HPAPI industry resulting in an increasing need for containment solutions aimed to reduce the risk of hazard and to prevent cross-contamination. With elevated risk come stricter regulatory guidelines that pharmaceutical companies and contract manufacturers need to adhere to.

The 4th year of this conference series focuses on the growing HPAPI landscape driven by the demand for highly potent drugs in oncology, diabetes and autoimmune disease treatment. This event will address the biggest challenges the industry is facing with regards to determining toxicology limits, assessing hazards, implementing risk procures, translating risk assessment into facility engineering, preventing and dealing with cross-contamination and adhering to GMP regulatory guidelines.
