Key Topics Covered:

INJECTABLE DRUG DELIVERY DAY ONE - 26 March 2013

09.30 - Chairman's Welcome and Introduction
Dr Gregory Berman,
Head of Innovation and Technology Management Group, Sagentia, UK

09.40 - Key Note Address: Market Trends

- High concentration formulations

11.00 - Discussion followed by Coffee

11.30 - Fluid Dynamics - Modelling the Realities of Injection Performance

- Mathematical modelling enables the opportunities and challenges of a range of device types to be explored early

- The implications of such characteristics as viscosity, dose volume and injection frequency are inseparable from the choice of delivery device

- Unfortunately, early consideration of the delivery device does not always take place. Opportunities can thus be lost and problems created which are costly and difficult to solve later

- Mathematical modelling techniques, applied properly, improve understanding of the issues concerned and enable better and earlier decisions to be taken

- Better informed decisions and better appreciations of the design options in turn support device designs which are better for the end user

- Early understanding of device issues supports and enables robust designs and capable manufacture

- Early understanding can shorten development timescales, in turn making earlier approval and earlier revenues possible
Andy Fry, Founder, Team Consulting, UK
