A NOVEL PREFILLABLE SYRINGE WITH A GLASS PRIMARY CONTAINER BUT NO NEED FOR EXTREME THERMAL REFORMING
Stephen Shue introduces a proprietary prefillable syringe, the SMPFS, whose novel glass-tube-plus-plastic-sheath design enables the use of a standard glass tube primary drug container, but avoids the need for the extreme thermal reforming process that conventional glass prefillable syringes must undergo.
MedinCell investigating role of long-acting antivirals to break chain of SARS-COV-2 viral transmission
With evidence indicating that the established antiparasitic ivermectin can kill coronavirus in a laboratory setting in under 48 hours, MedinCell has published data showing that long-acting formulations of ivermectin can be designed with varying doses and durations with its BEPO® technology and is investigating whether a long-acting product could be effective in breaking the chain of viral transmission.
Lexaria Bioscience Expands Pharma Division for development of Lipophilic Antivirals against COVID-19
Andreas Schneider highlights how the ever-increasing interest in device platforms raises concerns around the broad availability of lookalike autoinjectors that may result in inappropriate medication usage. He summarises a recent empirical study1 providing insights into which device attributes drive device distinguishability.
