PLATFORM TECHNOLOGY – Tumor-Targeting Platform Delivers the Next Generation of Pediatric Cancer Drugs
Contributor Cindy H. Dubin examines the desperate need for therapies that can address underserved populations, eradicate the cancer state without severe complications, and prolong the lifespan of the patient after diagnosis, and how NanoSmart Pharmaceuticals, with its unique tumor-targeting platform, has taken on that challenge.
DRUG DELIVERY – HEPtune: A Process of Conjugating a Naturally Occurring Sugar Molecule, Heparosan, to a Drug for Enhanced Drug Delivery
Paul L. DeAngelis, PhD, shows how heparosan is a stealthy molecule well suited for use as a drug delivery vehicle due to its natural origin and properties in the body. Therefore, heparosan-modified therapeutics may offer improved pharmacokinetics, drug performance properties, as well as new options for treatment and hope for patients.
Robert Becker, PhD, Chief Research Officer at Aptalis Pharma, discusses Patient Centric Drug Delivery and the company’s role in supporting patient compliance and driving commercial value through new drug formulations.
