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)
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)
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)

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)
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)
