Development of Patient Centric Oral Modified Release Drug Delivery Systems
Dr Jason Teckoe, Technical Director, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Colorcon
Dr Ali Rajabi-Siahboomi, Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer, Colorcon

Patients are becoming better informed and more active in healthcare and treatment choices.  As patients seek improved delivery options for their medication, we discuss a number of approaches that formulators, drug product developers and manufacturers can adopt to address some of the current patient desires. This session will discuss approaches to address the convenience of taking medication for different age groups (once-daily & ease of administration), increasing adherence (reducing size of dosage form and making easy to swallow) and building trust between pharmaceutical companies and patients (through on-dose authentication of the dosage form).
