DUBLIN, May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ns9q2p/branded) has announced the addition of the "Branded Injectables to 2020" report to their offering.
Advances in coatings and device designs have led to prefilled biologicals in patient-friendly drug-device combination products that were not possible just a few years ago. Prefilled drug cartridges have reduced the cost of injectable pens and autoinjectors, making them accessible to a larger segment of the chronically ill.
Injectors with advanced features such as variable dosing, dose counters and audible cues are making self-administration safer for patients prescribed immune modulators with black box warnings. To streamline the drug-device development process, drug developers are increasingly aligning themselves with device suppliers, increasing the level of concurrent engineering, identifying design challenges earlier and minimizing possible delays that could result.
This trend represents risks for injectable drug firms competing for device solutions for their sophisticated formulations. It is also an opportunity for smaller device suppliers who are able to demonstrate the financial and technological resources to address the needs of injectable drug developers.
