Technical assessment of technologies
for targeted drug delivery
Our client was looking for a technology to support a delivery
of their API to target/specific sites.
The project story:
We identified existing and emerging devices and non-device
technology options for targeted percutaneous and trans-luminal drug
administration. Requirements for viscosity, specificity, accuracy, and
practicality defined a search with particular challenges.
We interviewed stakeholders and researchers to validate technology
applicability and developed a framework describing solutions
strategies vs. technology functionality.
Selected technologies were profile and evaluated according to the
set of criteria involved including: technology functionality, mode of
dosing, facilities required for administration, level of development, and
time to a potential clinical trial with a new API.
Results: deliverables and outcomes
We provided recommendations on short-term and commercially
available solutions and medium- to long-term solutions, including
options claiming versatile applicability for a range of molecules.
It was understood that applicability of the prioritised medium/
long technologies would require compatibility testing and potential
co-development to accommodate the specific nature of an API of
