Ipsen to discuss the future of Controlled Release Peptide Drug Delivery

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LONDON - Jan 04, 2016 - Due to the excellent safety profile of polylactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA) particles in humans, and their biodegradability, many studies have focused on the application of these particles as a controlled release vaccine delivery system. Antigenic peptides can be encapsulated into the surface of PLGA particles and the gradual release of loaded antigens from PLGA particles is necessary for the induction of efficient immunity. The co-delivery of antigens and immunostimulants (IS) with PLGA particles can prevent the systemic adverse effects of immunopotentiators and activate both dendritic cells (DCs) and natural killer (NKs) cells, consequently enhancing the therapeutic efficacy of antigen-loaded PLGA particles.

Against this backdrop, SMi is proud to announce that Ipsen’s Novel Drug Delivery Technologies Director, Andy Lewis, will be delivering a Keynote Address taking place on Day Two of SMi’s 13th annual Controlled Release conference at 09:10 titled ‘The future of controlled release peptide drug delivery’. His presentation will cover the following key points:
•        Review of routes of delivery of currently marketed peptide products
•        Novel peptide dosage forms currently in development
•        Future innovations in peptide delivery

The two-day programme will provide updates on the latest innovations to accelerate commercialisation and regulatory updates to ensure strict compliance with case studies provided by the MHRA, GlaxoSmithKline, Ipsen, Novo Nordisk, MedImmune, AstraZeneca, Lundbeck, Merck, Critical Pharmaceuticals, Kashiv Pharma, Diurnal and more.

Speaker Panel includes:
• David Elder, Due Diligence Director, GlaxoSmithKline
• Marion Westwood, Pharmaceutical Assessor, MHRA
• Andy Lewis, Director Novel Drug Delivery Technologies, Ipsen
• Sachin Mittal, Senior Principal Scientist, Merck
• Marianne Ashford, Principal Scientist Drug Targeting, AstraZeneca
• Sune Andersen, Principal Scientist, Novo Nordisk
• Mark Wilson, Director Platform Technology and Science, GlaxoSmithKline
• Saif Shubber, Formulation Scientist, MedImmune
• Rene Holm, Senior Director, Lundbeck
