Intracellular drug delivery – solution to undruggable targets

Over time, advances in molecular biology and pharmacological chemistry have enabled the identification of biological targets localized in the subcellular space, and development of therapeutic leads against them. In fact, there are several clinical conditions, which were previously considered undruggable since the traditional small molecule-based interventions were unable to penetrate the selectively permeable cell membrane.

Abuse Deterrent Formulation Technologies: Combating Prescription Drug Abuse

Although the healthcare industry relies on the patient to take medications responsibly; in 2017, close to 18 million individuals were reported to have misused prescription drugs, in the US. In fact, data from a National Survey on Drug Use and Health conducted in the same year, showed that an estimated 2 million Americans misused prescription

The Emergence of Encapsulated Cell Therapies and Affiliated Technologies

Extensive research on  Cell Therapies encapsulation strategies have enabled the development of a variety of technologies capable of confining therapeutic entities within biocompatible matrices / carriers. Since 2013, over 3,000 patents have been published related to the aforementioned type of therapy, indicating the rapid pace of R&D activities in this domain. I have highlighted below
