Parenteral drug delivery offers a variety of challenges but also opportunities. The author examines recent developments in nanotechnology-based drug delivery and other advances in injection-based drug delivery.

Pharmaceutical Technology

High-temperature, short-time (HTST) pasteurization and ultra-high temperature (UHT) sterilization are potentially useful as part of the trend toward methods of continuous manufacturing of bio/pharmaceuticals.

Pharmaceutical Technology

Despite overall manufacturing rationalization in the pharmaceutical/biopharmaceutical industry, the large pharmaceutical companies continue to invest in biologic-based manufacturing. The author provides an update in recent investment activity among the pharmaceutical majors in biologic-drug substance, vaccine, and parenteral drug manufacturing.

The authors describe a holistic and integrated approach to focus on the linkage of the prefilled syringe with the four phases of product design, development, operation, and control.
