Drug delivery is an important area of drug development in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry. In Oncology, developers are interested in understanding the opportunities and parameters for delivery of drugs in outpatient settings, particularly the home. This is important for biotechnology products used in this area as companies seek to design new products and evaluate new opportunities for targeted therapies and other cancer treatments. This research examines the awareness and utilization of oncology drug delivery methods, the perceptions, attitudes and willingness to use various methods, and the preference for and satisfaction with each method.
- Understand trends, dynamics, and parameters specific to the delivery of drugs to cancer patients in key treatment settings such as home, office, or infusion center.
- Identify physician prescribing trends relative to drug delivery considerations.
- Understanding the role of reimbursement in physician’s choice of drug delivery.
- Identify physicians’ perception of different drug delivery approaches, as well as key drivers for adoption/non-adoption, compliance, and choice of delivery devices.
- Identify drug delivery trends within the oncology area.
- Determine product attributes relative to delivery that are considered to be important by physicians and patients.
- Identify prospective patient preferences and willingness to try new technologies as well as determine key drivers of adoption/non-adoption.
The eleven drug delivery categories evaluated in this research are:
- Intravenous injection
- Subcutaneous (SC) injection
- Intramuscular (IM) injection
- Intravenous infusion
- Implantable infusion pump
- External infusion pump
- Transdermal patch
- Topical gel or cream
- Rectal SHOW LESS READ MORE >
