Next Generation Technologies for Diabetes Therapy and Drug Delivery

Next Generation Technologies for Diabetes Therapy and Drug Delivery

Diabetes has exhibited dramatic increases during the past decade, registering a global prevalence of 9% among adults aged 18 years and older, and is projected to be the 7th-leading cause of death by 2030. The most popular treatment for type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is multiple daily insulin (MDI) injections. However, researchers globally are working on both the development of novel drugs to fight diabetes, and on the design of novel insulin delivery systems. These delivery systems mostly via use oral and pulmonary routes using nanocarrier-based delivery systems, as well as transdermal delivery to through patches and infusion pumps, which aim to improve the quality of life of diabetic patients.

An important new business model is emerging between large pharmaceutical/biopharmaceutical companies and medical devices firms with the objective of accelerating the delivery of novel therapeutic systems to the industry. Medical device companies and drug manufacturing companies sign long-term partnership agreements to combine their drug delivery devices with the most-active diabetes therapeutics, thereby bringing down the operational costs and saving a significant amount of time during the process.
