The pharmaceutical industry develops, produces, and markets prescription and over-the-counter medications and vaccines to cure or alleviate symptoms and enhance the quality of life of people. Pharmaceutical companies may deal in brand or generic and are subject to a variety of laws and regulations that govern the patenting, testing, safety, efficacy, and marketing of drugs.

New pharmaceutical products must be approved by the FDA as being both safe and effective which involves submission of an IND (Investigational New Drug) with sufficient pre-clinical data to support proceeding with human trials.
