Why you need Drug Delivery - Innovations, trends, and their impact on pharma

Revolutionary changes are disrupting the status quo simply through developments in the way drugs are given to patients. In a rapidly evolving field, drug delivery systems are offering growth opportunities and solutions - as well as presenting difficulties - as the range of choices grows.

To make sure you don't get left behind you need to understand what is happening at the cutting edge from experts innovating and leading the way through the technological and regulatory minefield. See how companies like Sanofi, Surefire Medical and Invion among other market leaders explain how they see the market and how they are dealing with the challenges.

Top Takeaways:

  • Change is accelerating. There's a wide range of new products at late-stage development, 200+ partnership deals are signed each year and device companies are now entering the market directly
  • Reliance on delivery mechanisms is increasing as health economics requirements on efficacy and cost-effectiveness multiply
  • Significant delivery mechanism opportunities still exist with the potential to solve unmet needs with new formulations
  • Drug combinations offer risks and rewards - the promise of innovative formulas is potentially hampered by technology and regulation
  • Product franchises are protected by differentiating products and by extending a profitable drug's lifecycle
  • Opportunities are growing in new markets as the Far East opens up and China expands healthcare to the wider population
