Drug design, often referred to as rational drug design or simply rational design, is the inventive process of finding new medications based on the knowledge of a biological target. The drug is most commonly an organic small molecule that activates or inhibits the function of a biomolecule such as a protein, which in turn results in a therapeutic benefit to the patient. In the most basic sense, drug design involves the design of molecules that are complementary in shape and charge to the biomolecular target with which they interact and therefore will bind to it. Drug design frequently but not necessarily relies on computer modeling techniques. This type of modeling is sometimes referred to as computer-aided drug design. Finally, drug design that relies on the knowledge of the three-dimensional structure of the biomolecular target is known as structure-based drug design. In addition to small molecules, biopharmaceuticals and especially therapeutic antibodies are an increasingly important class of drugs and computational methods for improving the affinity, selectivity, and stability of this protein-based therapeutics have also been developed

Drug delivery is the process of administering the drug or pharmaceutical product, in order to achieve desired therapeutic effect. The method by which drug delivered is important, as it has significant effect on its efficacy. Novel drug delivery system involves various approaches like medical devices or drug-device combination products. Novel drug delivery system (NDDS) involves combining polymer science, pharmaceutics and molecular biology. Novel drug delivery systems are designed based on physical and biochemical mechanisms. Physical mechanism or controlled drug delivery system includes dissolution, osmosis, erosion and diffusion. Biochemical mechanism includes gene therapy, liposomes, nanoparticles, monoclonal antibodies. NDDS drugs are designed to target the site specific region, in order to achieve desired therapeutic effect, thereby reducing the side or toxic effects. Various drug delivery and drug targeted systems are developed, in order to minimize drug degradation, drug adverse effect, and in order to increase the drug bioavailability (amount of drug available at site targeted region). Site specific drug delivery may be either active or passive process.

Biologics are medicines made from living cells through highly complex manufacturing processes and must be handled and administered under carefully monitored conditions. Biologics are used to prevent, treat, diagnose, or cure a variety of diseases including cancer, chronic kidney disease, autoimmune disorders, and infectious diseases. A biosimilar is exactly what its name implies — it is a biologic that is “similar” to another biologic drug already approved by the FDA. Under U.S. law, a biosimilar is approved based on a showing that it is “highly similar” to an FDA-approved biological product, known as a reference product. It may not have any clinically meaningful differences in terms of safety and effectiveness from the reference product.

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. 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.
