What is the definition of Pharmaceutical?

The definition of pharmaceutical is something related to prescription drugs or pharmacies.

What are pharmaceutical drugs used for?

A pharmaceutical drug is a drug used to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent disease. Drugs are classified in various ways. One of the key divisions is by level of control, which distinguishes prescription drugs from over-the-counter drugs. Another key distinction is between traditional small molecule drugs, usually derived from chemical synthesis, and bio pharmaceuticals, which include recombinant proteins, vaccines, blood products used therapeutically, gene therapy, and cell therapy. Other ways to classify medicines are by mode of action, route of administration, biological system affected, or therapeutic effects. An elaborate and widely used classification system is the Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical Classification System.

Time for some repairs………Big Ben will be silent for several months!

What an iconic Landmark and probably the most famous clock in the world, Big Ben.

Big Ben is the giant bell in the belfry of the Elizabeth Tower at the Palace of Westminster, which has been overlooking our Capital City of London, for over 151 years, and has become a very popular tourist site.

Cast at Whitechapel Bell Foundry on the 10th April 1858, the famous clock is now in need of some repairs due to cracks in the masonry and corrosion to the cast iron roof, so whilst the construction and mechanical works are to be carried out, there will be no more chimes during this period.  So at 12.00pm on the 21st August there will be no more dongs……..!!!!!

 

Here at Masterflex Technical Hoses we supply many different types of flexible ducting for Construction and Mechanical purposes.  Feel free to check out our website or contact our friendly Sales Team by ringing 0161 626 8066 or emailing sales@masterflex-uk.com
