Pediatric Drug Delivery Technology and Product Opportunities, 2nd Edition

This 250+ page report provides a comprehensive overview of the pediatric drug delivery market and includes relevant market data, key players, pharmaceutical product information, drug delivery technology profiles, and partnering opportunities.  

According to the report Pediatric Drug Delivery:  Technology and Product Opportunities, 2nd Edition, there is a strong need for development and commercialization of pediatric-friendly formulations.  Presently, there are not enough marketed formulations that are suitable for pediatric patients and this report hopes to increase awareness of the unmet needs in the pediatric segment while also providing actionable information for formulation and marketing companies.  

In order to facilitate development and commercialization of new pediatric products, this report identifies therapeutic categories where the need exists for pediatric-friendly formulations (easy to swallow formulations such as liquids and dissolvable tablets) and provides examples of specific drugs that are candidates for reformulation.  Some of the key therapeutic categories discussed in this report include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, epilepsy, pain management, and respiratory illnesses; all of which have a growing incidence among pediatric patients.  In addition, the report profiles specialty pharmaceutical companies focused on pediatrics, many of which have an interest in forming strategic partnerships for the co-development and/or marketing of new pediatric products.  Finally, pediatric pipeline products are identified as well as multiple pediatric-focused products which are available for partnering in one or more major markets. 

As drug delivery technologies play a very important role in pediatric medicine, this report provides detailed profiles of novel drug delivery technologies that can be used to formulate pediatric-friendly products.   More than 70 different delivery technologies are covered in this report and include orally disintegrating tablets and films, taste masked suspensions, soft chewable delivery systems, topical foam systems, and controlled release liquids.

This 250+ page report provides a comprehensive overview of the pediatric drug delivery market and includes relevant market data, key players, pharmaceutical product information, drug delivery technology profiles, and partnering opportunities.
