Share this article

biologics-parenteralOver 60% of the drugs currently being researched and in clinical development are biologics.  To have the desired effect in the human body, they need administered via parenteral delivery.   The prefilled syringe industry is expected to grow to $6.9 billion by 2018.  This method also allows for many safety benefits for the patient using them: ease of administration, improved safety, reduced risk of contamination, and accurate dosing.

Our partners at Drug Development and Delivery recently wrote an article looking at the development and discovery of the ways that companies are expanding their parenteral delivery options.  They featured the following companies having promise in the prefilled syringe arena with their products:
