Biotechnology is a multidisciplinary scientific research field which uses living organisms or their parts to develop or modify products, or improve plants, animals and microorganisms. Biotechnology and the world of colors are always connected with each other through biotech applications. This has encouraged the requirement to construct a classification system based on colors. Advance technologies and products are developed within the areas include medicine (development of new medicines and therapies), agriculture (development of genetically modified plants, biofuels, biological treatment) or industrial biotechnology (production of chemicals, paper, textiles and food), environment (maintenance of biodiversity, bioremediation) etc. However, Biotechnology achieved considerable progress in the branch of healthcare sector. Pharmaceutical biotechnology is a relatively new and growing field in which the principles of biotechnology are applied to the development of drugs. A majority of therapeutic drugs in the current market are bioformulations, such as antibodies, nucleic acid products and vaccines. Biotechnology helps the pharmaceutical industry to develop new products, new processes, methods and services and to improve existing ones. This article is an inclusive review of use of biotechnology in the development of novel pharmaceutical products. It also covers the impact of biotechnology in research and invention related to different aspects of medicine. There is a widespread list of biopharmaceutical products in healthcare management available for therapeutic use. In this review we are discussed about various classes of biotechnology-based products such as gene therapy, monoclonal antibody, DNA fingerprinting, vaccines, biopharmaceuticals, stem cell therapy, pharmacogenomics along with their therapeutic applications. Key words: Pharmaceuticals in biotechnology,Gene therapy,Monoclonal antibody,Pharmacogenomics, DNA fingerprinting, Stem cell therapy.
