In recent years, the number of protein-based pharmaceuticals reaching the marketplace
has increased exponentially. The clinical application of these drugs is limited by a lack
of desirable attributes for adequate absorption or distribution.

It therefore becomes critical to formulate these drugs into safe, stable and
efficacious delivery systems. Because these drugs face formidable enzymatic and
penetration barriers when administered orally, peptide and protein drugs continue to be
developed almost exclusively for parenteral administration.

These combination drug-device products, where the drug and device are clinically
tested and approved as a single product entity, are becoming one of the fastest new drug
categories. The growth of protein drug products is having a significant effect on the way
drugs and devices are developed.

Cooperation between device designers and drug developers is occurring much earlier in
the drug development cycle, allowing device designs in many cases to be tailored to the
bioavailability targets and pharmacokinetic profiles of specific drug therapies.
