Injection Devices for Biological Drugs, 2018 Market Research Report - ResearchAndMarkets.com

October 5, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 5, 2018--The “Injection Devices for Biological Drugs” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Biological drugs as a class continue to outpace all other NCEs in development pipelines and clinical trials. Because biological drugs most often target chronic conditions, dosing strategies and treatment protocols must be developed for long-term use, often for self-administration by patients who may have limitations directly related to their condition.

The powerful physiological effects of antibodies, hormones, enzymes and other biological drugs also increase the need for safety and adherence. Cooperation between device designers and drug developers is occurring much earlier in the drug development cycle, allowing device designs in many cases to be tailored to the bioavailability targets and pharmacokinetic profiles of specific drug therapies.

New injectable delivery device designs currently being developed will create new opportunities for alternative injection methods. Partnerships between device suppliers and pharmaceutical companies will foster market acceptance of new injection devices for a host of new therapies such as therapeutic vaccines, DNA-based drugs, and protein-derived biologics.
