Delivering on a Promise
Developing a drug that hits a given target is one thing. Making sure it gets to that target is quite another. Fortunately, drug delivery approaches are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Here, we ask those at the cutting-edge how they plan to deliver a better outlook.
Innovation in drug delivery is all around us – and almost every day brings the publication of new academic research, a new company announcement, or the formation of a new collaboration aimed at advancing the field. Some progression in drug delivery is conceptually simple, such as tweaking a formulation to reduce the number of doses, or developing a new version of a currently approved drug in a more patient-centric format. Other research focuses on complex and clever targeting methods that get a drug to precisely the right point in the body, or tackle difficult-to-treat diseases. Increasingly, a number of researchers are widening their innovation net to look beyond biological science and formulation, and to investigate the potential offered by electronics – miniature and ingestible – that can be incorporated into pills and capsules to help with targeting.
In the following articles, we explore a handful of fascinating drug delivery research projects that aim to go beyond incremental improvements in the field to offer brand new approaches.
