Considerations for Choosing the Right Wearable Drug Delivery System

For patients with chronic conditions, the use of injectable biologic therapies is on the rise. Biologics, while providing considerable therapeutic benefit, can also present several challenges for both drug manufacturers and patients. In particular, many biologics are highly viscous and others require large doses to be injected slowly over time. This can make it difficult to deliver a consistent dose every time, potentially impacting medication adherence.

Modifying MDI Canister Surfaces to Improve Drug Stability & Drug Delivery

Presspart Manufacturing Ltd

Hydrofluoroalkane (HFA)-based propellants are widely used in modern metered-dose inhalers (MDIs), due to their lack hazardous and environmentally-damaging effects. However, an HFA's active pharmaceutical ingredient can interact with the canister substrate, causing deposition of the drug to the canister walls, or interact with the solution, causing degradation and resulting in increased impurity levels. Over the past few years, a number of surface coatings have been developed that can be applied to MDI canisters and valve components, to protect the contents from deposition and degradation. More recently, plasma processes have been developed to modify and improve the surface energy performance of a MDI canister. This approach has a number of advantages to alternative coatings but requires careful optimisation to ensure the highest quality finish and MDI performance. Richard Turner, Business Development Director, Presspart Manufacturing Ltd, explains.
