Get to Market Faster and Modernize Oncology Treatment

You’re under pressure to get your molecule to market as fast as possible, with as little risk and cost as possible, so you can maximize market share and revenue. But there are significant shifts that are changing the way in which new drugs are developed.
The IV-to-SC
trend is increasing
40%

of injectable drugs were approved with devices in 2018, compared to only 25% in 2011. 1  

The patient experience is increasingly critical

The FDA’s patient-focused drug development (PFDD) helps ensure patients’ preferences are incorporated throughout drug development 2  

The competition
is intensifying

There are more molecules than ever in the biologics pipeline , as well as more biosimilars now coming to market. 3

The Challenges of Trying to Reduce Risk in Development

The Challenges of Trying to Reduce Risk in Development

To expedite the development plan, many companies choose to stick with an IV therapy they’ve used before, because it’s tried and tested. But this doesn’t align with patient preferences. Meanwhile, your competition is marketing SC injection with syringes. While SC injection with syringes is closer to the mark when it comes to patient preference, it ultimately falls short, in part because it may still require a healthcare provider to administer the medication to the patient in a clinical setting.

To elevate your focus to patient outcomes,  

you need to modernize your delivery by using technology to enable fit-for-purpose, on-body devices and simplify the development process so you can protect your market position.
