BIODEGRADABLE FIBERS – Enabling Controlled Pharmaceutical & Biologic Delivery for Next-Generation Medical Applications
Kevin Nelson, PhD, discusses how wet-extruded fiber eliminates the traditional limitations of pharmaceuticals and biologics that may be incorporated into implantable medical devices with melt extrusion or electrospun fibers, microspheres, or nanoparticles.
T.R. Shantha, MD, PhD, FACA, explores and explains how therapeutic and non- therapeutic agents can reach the brain, bypassing through the formidable BBB based on the unique microanatomic and physiologic characteristics of the nasal olfactory mucosal route and its CNS connections that allow transportation directly into the CNS.
Harry A. Arena, MBA, President & CEO of TDT, Chris Kim, President & General Counsel, Viral Gene, Inc., and Dr. Scott Waldman, Professor & Chair of Sidney Kimmel Medical College’s Department of Pharmacology & Experimental Therapeutics at Thomas Jefferson University, discuss the unique characteristics of the vaccine, the patients who will benefit the most, and how a research team captured the attention of investors.
Winston Brown explains how companies can reduce the risk and impact that regulatory uncertainty can play by, in advance of pursuing development, understanding the regulatory landscape and then developing a regulatory compliance strategy that is appropriate and suitable for the combination product as a system.
