The inherent instability of protein drugs is a limitation that has a direct impact on the drug delivery sector. Therapeutic proteins must either be stored under special conditions or formulated to retain their efficacy from the time of manufacture until they are dispensed. Liquid protein drugs require refrigeration until dispensed - a requirement referred to as the cold chain'. Alternatively, proteins can be formulated as powders (lyophilization).

Lyophilized proteins must be reconstituted prior to injection. Lyophilized drugs are increasingly being sold with reconstitution vial systems, or packaged in special injection devices (e.g., pens, needle-free injectors, two-part syringes) that allow reconstitution to take place in the device prior to injection. Drug Reconstitution Systems for Self-Administration examines the impact of reconstitution at the point of self-administration on injectable drug markets.
