Therapeutic Indications, Product Strategies, Markets and Forecasts

While alternative methods for delivering therapeutics to patients have had some
notable successes, most drugs continue to be delivered orally. Because they cannot
tolerate the first-pass metabolism of the digestive tract, the recent escalation in new
biological drugs, including antibodies and recombinant proteins, is placing renewed
emphasis on alternate delivery technologies. Now a number of factors are converging to
create both risk and opportunity for drug makers and their delivery device partners. These
include new classes of drugs for previously refractory conditions, the growing trend
toward self-administration for chronic diseases, shifting patient demographics in
industrial countries, caregiver safety legislation, and continued pressure to control
healthcare costs. These factors are giving rise to a new generation of sophisticated,
application-specific injection, inhalation and transdermal drug products designed to
satisfy caregiver and patient preferences while addressing managed care initiatives and
the formulation limitations of new classes of therapeutic drugs. Because of their ability
to safely and reliably satisfy treatment protocols and compliance goals, non-oral drug
delivery products will have a significant impact on the future of drug
