Small Form Factor Device Simplicity Propelling the Adoption of Self-administered Subcutaneous Infusion

Press release from: Greystone Research Associates

(Amherst, NH) – In terms of developer interest and market activity, small form factor subcutaneous infusion (SFFSI) devices are reaching a tipping point that is forcing the industry at-large to take notice and re-assess their product strategies accordingly. While there are currently two dozen products launched and in development, the presence of large pharmaceutical companies in this space and the strategic agreements in place with key SFFSI device developers indicates that the approach has found important advocates.

Capabilities such as compact device designs, flexible cannula insertion, variable dosing and drug cartridge replacement have positioned these devices squarely within the home healthcare space. Ease-of-use features such as intuitive infusion activation, strategic button placement, digital displays and tactile feedback cues further enhance the feeling of assurance and wellbeing among users.

Since existing infusibles are typically supplied in vials or IV containers, often as concentrates for dilution or as lyophilized powders, the transition from caregiver administration to self-administration requires device designers and drug developers to adapt as-supplied packaging to accommodate the SFFSI primary container. For powder drugs, formulators are often challenged to create a solution version of the drug. If this is not an attractive option, the device designer is called upon to simplify the reconstitution step and integrate it as seamlessly as possible into the overall device operational envelope. This latter approach is used by Enable Injections. The Company’s SFFSI device utilizes a vial transfer system integrated with its device fill station to reconstitute the drug just prior to filling. The device is currently being developed for several therapeutic drugs under an agreement with CSL Behring.

The evolving market for small form factor subcutaneous infusion devices is detailed in a new and comprehensive report researched and written by Greystone Research Associates. Small Form Factor Subcutaneous Infusion Systems analyzes the global market for these innovative devices that have been specifically designed to address a growing, unmet market need. The report also assesses key therapeutic market segments, analyzes demand drivers, development factors, market considerations, and economic factors, and provides profiles of market sector participants.
