FROM FORMULATION TO MANUFACTURING: LIPID NANOPARTICLE mRNA VACCINES, GENE THERAPIES & OTHER NANOMEDICINES
Allison Strochlic and Andrea Dwyer discuss the often overlooked aspect of a combination product user interface: the packaging. With a specific look at injection devices, the authors cover how to perform proper human factors testing of a combination product’s packaging, and the advantages doing so can confer to a project.
HOW LONG CAN YOU HOLD THE DEVICE AGAINST THE SKIN? INSIGHTS FROM AN EMPIRICAL STUDY USING HAND-HELD AUTOINJECTORS
Andreas Schneider summarises recent empirical work investigating the ability of users of hand-held devices to complete longer injection times effectively. The study provides insights into the effects of injection duration on the force exerted by the user to hold the device against the injection site.
MEASURING & MANAGING MEDICATION ADHERENCE FROM CLINICAL TRIALS TO ROUTINE CARE: THE INJAY MEMS AS® INITIATIVE
Andrea Cusack discusses how, by using bottom-up nanotechnology techniques, efficiencies can be found both in the development of new chemical entities and in the repurposing of existing drugs, and how these efficiencies translate into reduced energy requirements and therefore more sustainable industry practices.
In this exclusive interview, Andrei Yosef discusses Sorrel’s differentiated electro-mechanical, connected wearable injection platform, and two exciting recent milestones for the company, the opening of a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and the signing of a significant partnership with a large pharma company.
Lars Keinicke Hansen; Chiara Mussoi and Odra Pinato describe how the streamlining of processes and harmonisation of products and services can better serve pharmaceutical companies. A case study highlights how a unique combination of expertise in automation and glass primary packaging benefited pharma giant Merck Serono in a recent project.
