The trend toward patient self-administration of injectables continues to have a broad influence on the drug delivery sector. While prefillable syringe manufacturers continue to improve and refine their products, from a materials technology standpoint the most dynamic developments are occurring in the refinement of PFS constructed of plastic rather than glass. To date, plastic PFS have made significant inroads in EMS injectables, a segment dominated by Hospira’s Ansyr plastic PFS product line. Now, as materials technology continues to advance, market sector participants are targeting mainstream therapeutic drugs.
