Drug delivery technologies can clearly differentiate a drug in today’s increasingly complex, crowded and competitive markets. For example, the leading cardiovascular medicine in the United States during the mid-1990’s built its success largely on an innovative delivery system. Drug delivery technologies can revive promising compounds which have been abandoned due to formulation problems. Innovative drug delivery technologies can be used to add something new to a compound to get marketing advantage and increase a product’s branded lifecycle.

Drug delivery technologies can help minimize adverse side effects, improve the action of a drug through faster onset, time-controlled or site-specific delivery, or reduce the number of doses a patient needs to take. Drug delivery technologies can also help address the pervasive problem of noncompliance.

The future of drug delivery looks very exciting. It is now possible to delivery a macromolecule such as insulin, through pulmonary delivery. Furthermore, drug delivery research could some day produce insulin pills for diabetics or an under-skin pharmacy on a microchip.
