Italian to English translations [PRO]
Medical - Medical: Pharmaceuticals / manufacturing
Italian term or phrase: galenico
Document relating to restructuring of a pharmaceutical planrt:

"La divisione Pharma ridefinisce la propria capacità produttiva di farmaci galenici a livello mondiale"

".. ridimensionamento dei reparti del sito galenico di .."

Obviously, galenic can have a very tangible meaning - formulations optimised for bioavailability etc - and also less meaningful uses - pharma in general.

Does anyone have experience of routine use of this term in this context?

Explanation:
galenical preparations
This is the way I usually found it.

Less often- also galenic preparations.

For the second item, it should be galenical manufacturing (= formulation) unit.

There is an example:
The Galenical Manufacturing units coordinate secondary manufacturing at sites worldwide. Galenical manufacturing (also known as “formulation”) is the manufacturing process by which all active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) produced chemically or by biotechnology are transformed into application forms suitable to treat patients. It also includes product packaging.

  -> thank you, but as a matter of fact, it comes from the name of Galen (or Galenus), who was, indeed, a Greek physician; it means a medicine prepared from plants, according to a fixed recipe, as opposed to drugs of known chemical composition
