Breathing Space

Inhalation technology is considered to be one of the most feasible administration options for patients as, unlike other methods of application, it is painless and flexible. This drug delivery technology is gaining increasing importance for the treatment of asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), respiratory allergies and cystic fibrosis, among others. Due to the large surface area presented by the respiratory tract, this route expedites drug absorption and onset action, while allowing for smaller doses to be administered. It has also been found to increase patient compliance.

However, there are various disadvantages associated with inhalation technology such as:
  • Persistent drug irritation
  • The risk of toxic particles affecting the lungs
  • Drug stability issues
  • Deposition of aerosolised particles in the oropharyngeal area and within the upper airway

Future-proofing serialization solutions: the importance of strong level 3 capabilities

Adents

The complexities surrounding product serialization for pharmaceutical and medical device companies are immense. While current serialization requirements are limited to marking the unit of sale with a unique data carrier, by 2023 the process will require a product to be traceable through the entirety of its journey - from the individual package through the carton/pallet to its final point of distribution. In the United States, the Healthcare Distribution Management Association (HDMA) is suggesting that pharmaceutical companies begin to support this level of serialization, called aggregation, now. Around the world – in Europe and Asia in particular – disparate track and trace practices are incrementally moving toward a global standard that will, undoubtedly, be more stringent than today’s differing benchmarks. How can companies manage this transformation with the greatest degree of success while also minimizing business disruption?
