Merge suggestion[edit]

Why don't we fusion this article with biopharmacology? --Pepetps 18:03, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

I think that this is like fusion medication and pharmacology. In biopharmaceutical should be the families of biopharmaceuticals, and in biopharmacology the advantatges and reasons of use this type of drugs (symilar to ca:biofarmacologia). I'd like to translate the Catalan articles but my English level don't let me. Llull 18:42, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

BiopharmaceuticalBiopharmaceutical drug — biopharmaceutical is an adjective and Wikipedia titles are nouns per WP:ADJECTIVE; cf Pharmaceutical which redirects to Pharmaceutical drug RexxS (talk) 02:05, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

Survey[edit]

Feel free to state your position on the renaming proposal by beginning a new line in this section with *'''Support''' or *'''Oppose''', then sign your comment with ~~~~. Since polling is not a substitute for discussion, please explain your reasons, taking into account Wikipedia's policy on article titles.
  • Weak Oppose. Reading the discussion just below, it seems to me that "biopharmaceutical" is used as a noun with a specific meaning more often than "pharmaceutical" is. "Biopharmaceutical drug" seems to me to be needlessly verbose. But I don't feel strongly at all. Interested readers will be able to find the page under either name. --Tryptofish (talk) 17:15, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose Many of the products named in this article aren't drugs (they're biologics), so I don't think that it makes sense to move this page to any name including the word 'drug'. WhatamIdoing (talk) 18:59, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Any additional comments:
  • Google search shows plenty examples of the noun plural "pharmaceuticals", even if I exclude uses in company names. See also wiktionary:pharmaceutical. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 05:02, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
    • Indeed, Anthony, the use of "pharmaceuticals" as a noun may be found, but the principal use is as an adjective. The Wikipedia entry Pharmaceutical redirects to Pharmaceutical drug, so that issue seems to be settled. Surely it follows that biopharmaceutical should redirect to biopharmaceutical drug in the same way, for exactly the same reasons. Wiktionary, of course, has entries for adjectives as well as nouns. --RexxS (talk) 08:57, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
  • WhatamIdoing makes the compelling point that many biopharmaceuticals are not drugs. Perhaps someone could correct the opening sentence of the article: "Biopharmaceuticals are medical drugs ..."? --RexxS (talk) 23:53, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

I don't know if this is the right place to put this, but I would like to see something in the ethics section about population health implications and equity issues, as in the article at http://www.medicc.org/mediccreview/index.php?issue=17&id=204&a=va My apologies if this is in the wrong place. I am tech-clueless. Cranmills (talk) 16:33, 30 August 2011 (UTC)cranmills

Informal closure[edit]

It seems that there is a clear consensus not to move the page. Would any uninvolved editor close it as Not moved, please? Otherwise, I'll close it myself if there are no objections. --RexxS (talk) 02:09, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

Inaccurate article[edit]

I fundamentally disagree with the content of this article. The definition of biopharmaceutics is:

bi·o·phar·ma·ceu·tics (b-färm-stks) n. The study of the physical and chemical properties of drugs and their proper dosage as related to the onset, duration, and intensity of drug action. This article describes bio pharmaceuticals, not biopharmaceutics. Deaders78 (talk) 06:02, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

merge[edit]

today i merged this article into Biologic medical product as it almost completely overlapped and the target article was not so long that it needed a split. In general the "drug" articles are too scattered and lack interconnection. working on fixing that. Jytdog (talk) 21:41, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Biopharmacology merge to here[edit]
