Drug Delivery Technology: Assessing its potential

The time when advanced drug delivery was merely a means for profitable product life extension has gone. Drug delivery is now a major component of the pharmaceutical industry's future and critical to bringing novel therapies to market.

Indeed, without the ability to effectively deliver targeted drugs in therapeutically significant quantities, many of the gene-based agents in research would not be viable. Despite the importance of the sector, the pharmaceutical industry has not always been quick to embrace the full range of potential technologies and opportunities on offer.

With so many companies pursuing a wide range of research strategies, it is difficult for industry and commercial executives to get a balanced and independent overview of the competitive landscape.

That is why this major new 4-volume report, Drug Delivery Technologies: Players, Products and Prospects to 2018, is essential reading for everyone in the field, from niche technology specialists through to the investment community and the pharmaceutical industry itself.

Volume I

Controlled-release Delivery

The controlled-release market was worth nearly US$21 billion globally in 2008. The sector is dominated by the launch of oral controlled-release formulations in key therapeutic areas such as the central nervous system, cardiovascular, metabolic and respiratory diseases. The growth of controlled-release delivery continues to be fuelled by line extensions helping to offset the impact of generic erosion. We estimate there are around 60 approved controlled-release products which will generate global sales of over US$21.5 billion in 2009, peaking at around US$29.5 billion in 2017 as products mature and face patent expiration leading to a decline in mature product sales to US$28.9 billion by 2018. In addition, we forecast that controlled-release products in development from 17 key companies could generate additional sales of over US$5.1 billion by 2018.

Impact on product lifecycles

Controlled-release technologies, possibly more than any other approved delivery systems, have been an important tool for pharmaceutical companies to protect their branded franchises from the ever increasing and competitive generic market. These formulations play a critical role in establishing a balanced portfolio of solid dosage products and may lead to enhanced efficacy and improved patient compliance. This leads to reductions in patient costs and extending product life-cycle management for both branded and generic pharmaceuticals.

In the past, pharmaceutical companies have tended to develop controlled-release formulations as immediate-release counterparts near patent expiration. This trend is reversing and companies are developing controlled-release formulations earlier in the product life-cycle and often launching multiple formulations (immediate release, controlled release/

modified release, and delayed release) in parallel to expand the potential addressable patient population and gain a significant share of competitive market places.

This report answers key questions...

Who will have launched novel products by 2018 and what technologies could they be using?

Can market leaders such as ALZA and Elan maintain their status in controlled release in the face of growing competition?

What obstacles must companies overcome to achieve full market potential?

What strategies are proving most productive and for which companies?

What will the product/company landscape look like in 2018?

Volume II

Nano-enabled Delivery

The true value of nanotechnology lies in its potential to improve the solubility and enhance the efficiency of product delivery. It has been successfully applied to the commercialisation of more than 30 drugs. Regulators have published numerous white papers on the topic and established Task Forces to monitor the progress and application of this technology although there are presently no regulations specific to nanomedicine or nano-enabled medical devices.

As the field of nanotechnology gains momentum and nano-enabled platforms emerge to address the industry's need for therapeutic, bioavailable and less toxic products, this market is expected to grow significantly over the next decade. Proof of concept data with novel compounds is accumulating and new formulations of old chemotherapeutic drugs offer the promise to revolutionise cancer therapies.

The potential of future applications:

Tissue specific delivery – targeting the delivery of small and macro molecules across biological membranes such as the blood brain barrier for CNS drugs;

Gene and vaccine delivery – non-viral delivery of genetic materials in nanohydrogels and nanocarriers with a high degree of efficiency and expression;

Controlled-release devices – design of new nanoporous, bioerodible membranes;

Increased biocompatibility – design of artificial surfaces engineering for medical and dental implants to by-pass unwanted inflammatory response;

Improved drug bioavailability and solubility – through the engineering of drugs and reagents by nanostructuring;

Applied diagnosis, etiology, prognosis and therapy (ADEPT) technology for the safe targeted delivery of toxic therapeutic drugs.

By 2018, the market could exceed US$13 billion

By 2018 the established nanotechnology product market will be US$10.2 billion. The market will mature as the number of marketed nano-enabled products doubles and second generation nanomedicines begin to emerge. These agents will address areas of high unmet clinical need and result in the formulation of approved and novel drugs which are safer, less toxic and more efficacious than first generation products.

By 2018 these second generation nanomedicines could generate sales of nearly US$2.9 billion and establish nanotechnology as an important tool in the industry's delivery armoury. A range of proprietary delivery platforms will utilise CaP technologies, FluidCrystals, micelles and polymeric nanoparticles to target a number of therapy areas such as CNS disorders, oncology and infectious diseases.

Volume III

Nucleic Acid Delivery

The nucleic acid delivery market is maturing with over 1,450 clinical trials underway worldwide. The majority of these are in early clinical development (approximately 60%) with just over 3% in Phase III trials. Our analysis indicates that up to 35 novel nucleic acid products could reach the market within our forecasting period (2008-2018). However the harsh economic environment may force companies to place promising drugs on hold as they focus on lead projects rather than multiple programmes. To date, only a handful of nucleic acid-based products have been approved for human prescription and these products rely on delivery technologies in one shape or form. We estimate the nucleic acid market was worth just over US$80 million globally in 2008.

By 2018 we anticipate the nucleic acid technology market will have matured as many of the late-stage clinical programmes come to fruition and drug delivery companies continue to overcome issues surrounding its safety and efficiency. The development of nucleic acid delivery systems will help to improve specificity whilst the development of novel polymers and lipopolymer complexes will help to carry larger DNA payloads in order to target cells and make multigene targeting a reality. We forecast that nucleic acid products in development from 11 key companies could generate additional sales of nearly US$2.3 billion by 2018. These products utilise a range of delivery platforms including viral to non-viral delivery systems, and cover gene therapies, gene agents and DNA vaccines for a variety of targets including cancer, cardiovascular and infectious diseases.

Catalysts for change

Improvements in our understanding into the underlying genetic causes of disease as well as the uptake of new mechanisms of modulating DNA such as RNA interference which will help to fuel market growth.

The development of a new generation of DNA vaccines that will provoke strong immunogenic responses and will help to determine whether this has been a sound investment for the pharma industry.

Launch of the first siRNA-based therapeutics (although progress has been dampened following the recent termination of Opko Health's leading eye treatment at the Phase III development stage). We anticipate companies will pursue other conditions such as infectious diseases and cancer where robust preclinical studies have already been performed and where drug delivery platforms have been adopted rather than the use of naked siRNAs.

Which companies and products will dominate?

This volume will tell you!

Volume IV

Targeted Delivery

By 2018, over 30 new products will be launched resulting in a global market for advanced targeted delivery products worth over US$8.5 billion.

Despite considerable advances in drug delivery technologies, there continues to be a high unmet clinical need for safer and better-tolerated drugs. Sub-optimal compliance and failure to persist with drug treatments are important determinants of therapeutic non-response and are of significant cost to healthcare providers. Advanced targeted drug delivery technologies will help to overcome some of these issues by improving pharmacokinetics, increasing tolerability and reducing dose-limiting off-target effects.

The need for targeted delivery platforms is increasing as patients and drug regulators seek to meet these challenges.

Current and future applications

Whilst the majority of targeted delivery systems under evaluation incorporate passive carrier systems, there will be a shift towards the use of actively targeted carriers to increase the therapeutic index of existing and new products. There are significant opportunities for future commercial developments within the pharmaceutical industry. These include:

Cost-effective production of antibodies and antibody fragments for drug targeting;

Development of new polymers and biopolymers that may be utilised in the safe and efficient targeted delivery of drugs and pro-drugs into host cells;

Development and selective targeting of macromolecules to improve intracellular uptake and tissue specificity;

Development of inactive pro-drugs for tissue specific release;

Extended product life-cycles through the development of targeted formulations;

Identification of new targeting ligands to improve the targeted delivery of small molecules and macromolecules;

Utilisation of multiple targeting ligands to address the needs of patient sub-types;

Combined technology platforms to develop targeted therapeutics and diagnostics in a single molecule.

A new generation of targeted delivery systems is under development to meet these needs which should provide greater control over the selective targeting of tissue, either with active moieties or inactive moieties which may be activated within the tissue by biological (enzymes), chemical (pH) or physical means (light, ultrasound) in order to release the active agent. The multitude of delivery platforms will lend themselves to the delivery of both small molecules and macromolecules and to a variety of target sites and delivery routes.
