On the run up to the conference, SMi is pleased to catch up with James Wabby, Executive Director Regulatory Affairs Devices & Combination Products, Allergan to discuss his views and insight on the Pre-filled Syringes market, his presentation details and more.

Snapshot of James’ interview:

The Pre-Filled Syringes market has matured greatly over recent years, what key differences have you noticed in the last year regarding significant developments?

“There is no question that the industry is developing more sophisticated drug delivery platforms. Historically, the industry started with the classic pre-filled syringe and there has been significant developments in the space of patient centric single chamber, dual chamber and multi-chamber pre-filled syringes. One main reason for the various development efforts is to support personalized complex therapies. In addition, there is a growing need for customized injection systems to support the increase of specific therapeutic applications, such as the global dermal filler market. Administering dermal fillers and botulinum toxin therapies involves multiple injections of finite low-volume boluses into multiple target sites”.

What do you see as the greatest challenge for you to overcome personally in the pre-filled syringes field at the moment?

“The greatest opportunity within the pre-filled syringe industry is working cross functionally with medical device, pharmaceutical and biologic experts. This is a great experience which involves a ton of knowledge sharing across the team of experts. While there are similarities there are also many differences in the development of various therapeutic applications”.

There will also be a post-conference workshop day on the 17th of June 2020 featuring two half-day workshops.
