Beyond skin: Accelerating product development for non-traditional routes of delivery
Whether via the eye, skin, lungs, nose, or mucosal membranes these alternative routes offer key advantages alongside presenting unique challenges. To ensure a patient centric approach, pharmaceutical product developers are increasingly looking away from traditional routes of delivery and dosage forms (solid oral, intravenous).
The key to accelerating development in this area is the use of viable relevant human tissue in vitro models to optimize the drug or drug product to de-risk clinical trial and investment decisions. These models provide a measure of biological efficacy prior to the clinic and without translational concerns from animal models.
