frankly-fran-better Embrace Packaging and Delivery Systems Designed for Today's Standards

Regulations and standards for drug delivery systems and packaging are ever evolving and expanding, making it harder and more costly for older products to meet them. In this article, Fran DeGrazio explains why it is imperative that pharma companies consider new product adoption. 


Intranasal drug delivery offers a promising route for administering medications, but advancing to market can be a difficult journey. Learn about common development pitfalls and how to mitigate risk.

See how PBPK models combined with custom and off-the-shelf in vitro tools and solubility enhancement expertise can reduce the need for drug product reformulation or repeated preclinical or clinical studies.

Complex storage requirements can result in limited access to vaccines. But what if a formulation that removed the need for cold chain distribution was possible? Explore the formulation of vaccines with dry powder respiratory delivery in mind and manufacturing considerations for dry powder inhaled vaccines.

A partner with experts who are adept at working with complex, sensitive, and potent APIs; screening for the optimal formulation; and scaling up efficiently is vital for successful trials and commercialization.
