In this month’s issue, we look at how the Alliance for Safe Biologic Medicines (ASBM) has recently announced that it has developed a web-based tool for the naming of biologic medicines to quickly ensure compliance with naming standards set forth by the FDA and World Health Organization (WHO). The tool, called “SuffixAudit”, will be made available to regulators and manufacturers.
Also in recent news, the latest Healthtech M&A Report from international technology mergers and acquisitions advisors, Hampleton Partners, has revealed how the ‘perfect storm’ of rapidly converging digital technologies and societal changes, coupled with the entrance of tech giants, such as Amazon into the healthcare and medical systems market, is driving intense innovation and M&A activity in the Healthtech sector.
