GLOSSARY: Pharma Resources

Pharma Resources are used by the pharmaceutical companies. Pharmaceutical raw materials comprise substrates or elements that are used for manufacturing different types of drugs. Pharmaceutical excipients and ingredients or raw materials used to manufacture drugs are extracted from different types of sources. These sources could be natural or synthetic. Recently, many of the raw materials previously derived from natural sources are being produced synthetically in part or even bio-technologically. This is so because manufacturing them artificially is economical, safer, and much quicker.
