QUALITY BY DESIGN: CHANGING OUTLOOK OF PHARMACEUTICAL DEVELOPMENTAbstract
The concept of quality by design (QbD) justifies the saying that, quality is not an act, it is a habit. This innovative and systematic approach to pharmaceutical development based on scientific principles has been a breakthrough in developing quality products with a high level of reproducibility. The process of QbD is based on risk management which leads to a better understanding of the product and its manufacturing process, resulting in products with required quality, safety, and efficacy. As the quality and reliability requirements of today’s world are constantly increasing, QbD serves as an important tool in outperforming the global competition. This paper comprehensively discusses the concept of pharmaceutical quality by design, elements of QbD; quality target product profile (QTPP), critical quality attributes (CQAs), design space, control strategy, and lifecycle management. Application of QbD across various fields of pharmaceutical development including formulation development, analytical method development, phytopharmaceutical & biopharmaceutical product development are encompassed in the review.
