Biological Autoimmune Therapeutics

Antibody drug products indicated for chronic conditions such as autoimmunity are often re-formulated, re-packaged and re-labeled into injectable form and re-introduced two to three years post-market launch to address the growing economic pressure and patient desire to avoid the need for out-patient infusion in favor of self-injection. This report describes key factors in the trend toward user acceptance and designed-in usability. The influence of biosimilars on as-supplied packaging strategies is yet to be determined, but the need for product differentiation in an increasingly crowded market segment will make product packaging a key competitive factor.

Description

The administration of therapeutic immune modulators is becoming an increasingly important healthcare treatment option for a growing number of diseases and indications having broad implications for patient health and well-being. But to fully exploit the value of this class of therapeutics in both human and commercial terms, developers must successfully navigate the inherent limitations of drug storage and administration, moving away from infusion and toward injection as a route of administration.  Antibody drug products indicated for chronic conditions such as autoimmunity are often re-formulated, re-packaged and re-labeled into injectable form and re-introduced two to three years post-market launch to address the growing economic pressure and patient desire to avoid the need for out-patient infusion in favor of self-injection.
