The manufacture of parenteral pharmaceuticals is a high stakes endeavor because any product imperfections, whether chemical or biologic in nature, are equally as bioavailable as the active ingredients. Patient safety and product quality are always a concern in pharemaceutical manufacturing, however, the risks are amplified for parenteral products that in many cases are directly injected into the bloodstream. This means the impact of product quality risks are higher than for any other pharmaceutical presentation.
