ABSTRACT
Tablet coating is one of the oldest pharmaceutical process still in existence. It is a process of applying a thin polymer based film to a tablet or granule containing the active pharmaceutical ingredient. Solid dosage forms are coated for a number of reason, e.g. to control the drug release profile, to mask the bitter taste of the drug. There are various techniques for tablet coating such as sugar coating, film coating and enteric coating. Earlier, sugar coating was adopted for pharmaceutical as from the confectionary industry. But it was a tedious process and required skilled manipulation, therefore film coating was started to prefer over sugar coating. Film coating was mainly based on the solution of different polymers in organic and aqueous solution.

Abstracts:
Biosimilars are protein product that are similar to branded biologics and approved by regulatory agencies.  Biosimilars are cost effective and relatively cheaper than branded biologics. In pharmaceutical industry Biosimilars segments became one of the larger and lucrative one. The global Biosimilar segment has attended higher growth rate among them the USA and Europe are leading one. Further it very good opportunity for Pharmergings like India, China, Russia, Brazil etc. Specially India can replicate its well developed genetic segments and can attend higher growth in it. But, certain issues including immunogenicity, marketing competition and regulatory hurdles are needed to be addressed to propel further innovation in this segment. In present review various marketing opportunities, key issues and regulatory consideration for Biosimilars is described in detail.

ABSTRACT
The most important method for developing the very stable and suitable formulation for thermolabile as well as thermostable drug is lyophilization which works on the principle of sublimation of ice crystal from frozen material. Principle of the process through the basis of formulation, freezing, primary drying and secondary drying . In order to design optimum lyophilization process, process development scientific need to the critical properties of the formulation and how to apply to this information to process design. Lyophilized formulation not only has the advantage of better stability, but also provide easy handling i.e. shipping and storage. This article present an overview of lyophilization process, its advantage and pharmaceutical application.

Abstract:
Pharmaceutical industry is a most diverse, R&D oriented, hypercompetitive and knowledge sensitive industry. Competitive intelligence (CI) is a process of ethically and systemic data gathering from operating system to draw important business conclusions. Use of CI for drawing important conclusions regarding present scenario and future forecasting is very important and growth determining practice of pharmaceutical industries. Intellectual property rights (IPR) is an integral part of the industry and IPR related information is freely available in public patent databases. By analyzing patents company can derive important conclusion regarding competitor’s R&D activities, quality of research, collaboration and alliance and can convert this information to knowledge which can play important role in taking future decisions. Present review is fully focused on advent of IPR in getting very good information regarding competitor’s strategies and tactics.
