Key insights for a successful device development to achieve bioequivalence requirements

The most common use of multi-dose nasal sprays is for allergy related symptoms, such as allergic rhinitis. This market is dominated by nasal preparations for the administration of locally acting drugs such as steroids, where the delivery system is a critical element for therapeutic efficacy.
Moreover, majority of big pharmaceutical drugs came or are coming off patent. We observe new trends for regulatory strategy and commercialization of nasal sprays:

1. Generic companies enquire for an equivalent delivery system to the Reference Listed Drug,
2. Innovator companies switch to Over-The-Counter status to protect from market erosion due to generics.

Speakers will cover several subjects related to the nasal spray development from different perspectives.
A detailed review of the device influence in terms of nasal spray characteristics and performances will be presented.
The bioequivalence requirements as well as region-specific regulatory strategies will be discussed.
Also, we will demonstrate how fundamental the control of the testing methods and statistical computation are to ensure reliable bioequivalence assessment.

Recognized as a world leader in design development and manufacturing, Nemera will provide useful advice for a successful development with respect to bioequivalence requirements.

Sign-up today to learn about the device perspectives in the changing landscape of the nasal drug delivery!
