Drug Delivery Innovations Driving Improved Patient Compliance

ROCKVILLE, MD--(Marketwire - Aug 15, 2011) - has announced the addition of the new report "Drug Delivery Innovations Driving Improved Patient Compliance" to their collection of Drug Delivery market reports. For more information, visit

The importance of the oral route of administration from both a clinician and patient acceptance point of view means there has been a vast amount of development and research in drug delivery via this route. Noncompliance can be attributed to poor taste, difficulty in administration or swallowing, and the inconvenience of multiple doses per day.

Of all the modifications to parenteral delivery systems, the transdermal administration route is attracting the most attention. Across all parenteral delivery forms, the continued increase in the number of experimental protein and peptide drug candidates means that there is a high level of unmet need for delivery systems for these types of drugs.

Pharmaceutical devices will continue to drive patient compliance and acceptability as increased options make for a wider choice. The convergence of MEMS and nanotechnology with biological applications offers breakthrough in drug developments.

This report gives in depth coverage of the factors driving patient non compliance. The report then goes on to describe and analyze key technologies being developed to improve compliance in the oral and parenteral delivery spaces. Finally the report looks at new delivery devices being developed which will improve patient compliance.

Report coverage:

  • Patient compliance
  • Modified release oral delivery technologies
  • Modified release parenteral formulations
  • Devices
