Dear colleagues,

Pharmaceutical and Vaccine Quality Illustrated, compiling 730 terms, 101 photographs, 77 illustrations, 191 references, links and QR codes to 26 videos and 4 gif files is now available in PDF and ePUB3 formats from

The spectrum of this glossary goes from product development and clinical trials to legislation around regulatory functions; from manufacturing to storage and dispatch activities and to post-marketing surveillance. It covers a comprehensive list of systems, procedures, and tools used at all levels that one way or another touch the issue of “product quality”.

What you have in your hand is not a simple glossary. Under many terms, in addition to their definitions, you will find additional information and perspectives on their uses. Wherever possible, tables, flowcharts, decision tables, illustrations, sketches, and photographs are included.

J Vesper in his foreword refers to a risk management expert having a poster on his wall that explains why correctly defining the terms is so important:

“Theorem 1. One-half of the world’s problems are caused by people using the same word for different things.

Theorem 2. The other half of the world’s problems are caused by people using different words for the same thing.”

I would like to thank Jim Vesper and Tom Reeves for their contribution with foreword, and Kadir Abbas for typesetting and layout, and facilitating the ePUB3 conversion. Special thanks go to Umran and Gokhan Akaalp for the website application.

Hope you find it useful. Happy downloads…

Cheers and all the best,
