The Consortium’s mission is to identify current and future unmet medical needs within a dynamic SC drug delivery and development environment to transform patient care and improve patient outcomes. As a member, KORU Medical will contribute to advancing understanding of patient preference for SC therapy and the clinical trial strategy and technology for high-volume SC drugs. KORU Medical was one of the first companies to develop technology for SC biologics with volumes above 5mL, and its Freedom System is used by over 25,000 patients today to receive SC therapy. KORU Medical is established as the market leader in above 10mL and will bring this deep expertise in patient experience and subcutaneous injection technology to the Consortium.
