Application of Leading Drug Delivery Technologies in Clinical R&D Pipelines

Navi Mumbai, India (PressExposure) March 02, 2009 -- Delivery Mechanisms for Large Molecule Drugs Successes and failures of leading technologies and key drivers for market success( [] ) report provide the information about essential aspects of market, forecast, SWOT analysis and technologies in drug delivery technologies market.

Emerging drug delivery technologies aim to improve measures of safety, efficacy, convenience and compliance in both new and existing drug candidates and products. For currently marketed products, reformulations with new delivery technologies will extend the period of patent protection. New formulas will be key to boosting sales volume of large molecule products in chronic diseases where patient compliance surrounding dosing strategies and ease of administration are limitations on market growth. In R&D pipelines, novel applications of delivery technologies will expose new methods to reformulate failed or discontinued drugs and mask their unfavorable effects, expanding the market of potential drug candidates.

‘Delivery Mechanisms for Large Molecule Drugs’ is a new report that examines the future of the drug delivery technologies market, and the short, mid, and long-term growth dynamics which will underpin investment decisions. This report will measure the performance of leading drug delivery technologies applied within clinical R&D pipelines and identify when specific therapy area populations are set to benefit from emerging innovations. The market success of new technologies is forecast by their ability to fulfill unmet medical need, the maturity of the technology in clinical application, and the level of commercial interest and investment landscape.

Key Findings Nanotechnology will have the greatest impact on the drug delivery market. However, the immaturity of the technology is likely to delay marketed presence over the next 7-10 years.

Antibody fragmentation and PEGylation technologies are the leading targeted large molecule particle engineering formulas with marketed drug product presence. However, antibody fragments have suffered 33 candidate failures compared with 12 PEGylated products.

Active transdermal technologies have generated the greatest number of technologies and devices amongst large molecule delivery innovations, with 16 clinical and 8 preclinical drug/device combination products and 49 stand-alone devices.

Electronic delivery is set to have the greatest impact upon the device industry. Electronic device control is more advanced within the field of pulmonary delivery than transdermal delivery, with the average pulmonary-based product in early clinical phase I compared to late-stage preclinical investigation for transdermal. There are, however, 25 transmembrane electroporation technologies currently being developed, in comparison to 12 for electronic active pulmonary delivery. Use this report to...

High failure rates for new technologies. The high failure rates of drugs to which pioneering delivery techniques have been applied have made investors cautious. Unknown clinical safety and efficacy profiles have made it harder to determine appropriate parameters for success in clinical application. Immaturity of technologies. Many of the technology platforms profiled in this report are in the early stages of application to clinical drug candidates. Those that have achieved success in marketed drug candidates already have ‘next generation’ alternatives in technology pipelines.

Unknown clinical pharmacokinetics. Many of these platforms remain in such an immature stage that they have yet to be applied to drug candidates. In vivo experimental use in drug candidates can never accurately predict success once a technology has reached maturity. Even for those technologies with established use in R&D pipelines, long-term clinical efficacy remains unknown.

Regulation of the new technologies. While the clinical performance of new particle engineered drug molecules or active delivery devices remain unknown, regulatory bodies only have existing data-measure demands on which to benchmark their expectations. This framework will be shifted in line with emerging clinical performance datasets. Discover...
