Program Highlights
2020 Focus Topic: The Selection of Drug Delivery Systems – from Unique Systems to Platform

Are you interested in sharing your knowledge and experience with your colleagues? We welcome submission of case studies focused specifically on the meeting topic or other relevant topics of current interest to the industry. Please send your proposal no later than November 29, to the attention of Teresa Schubach.

Overview

In today’s pharmaceutical market, devices like pen/autoinjector/safety devices have gained significance over the last several years due to increased convenience for end-users. Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies with a drug product in application systems such as syringes/cartridges in clinical phases are usually focused on scale-up of the product. Drug delivery devices to further improve end-user friendliness that not considered early on can have a negative effect on further processability, variability in the forms of presentation, or cost and time-to-market. Therefore, starting the discussion early regarding the packaging strategy can save you time and money.

The goal of the meeting is to discuss these issues with a primary focus on:

  1. When does one begin creating a strategy to introduce an end-user convenient device? What needs to be considered for development, assembly and reimbursement?
  2. What is the selection process for a pen/autoinjector, safety device, wearables and add-ons - customized versus platform?
  3. Learn from case studies from a pharma/biotech supplier using tools, selection process, platforms, process and technology infrastructure and development strategies.
  4. What is the risk to implement a platform and the potential negative impact

Take advantage of the open forum design approach offered by this small Interest Group meeting. Hear presentations from leading experts and interact and discuss your experiences with colleagues in “World Cafe” discussions. Receive the latest information about activities of the Interest Group/Pre-filled Syringes.
