Case Study
The article presents a case study of enzyme replacement therapies (ERTs) for efficient multiproduct process development (PD). It describes the approach to ERT product development applicable in the development of other types of pharmaceutical products. It summarizes the effect and evolution of PD platforms created for complex enzymes to suit the accelerated development. The process of attaining efficiency through PD life cycle staged planning is also mentioned.
