Periodic Reporting for period 1 - oWBI (Osmotic Wearable Bolus Injector (oWBI) for viscous drug delivery)
Reporting period: 2018-02-01 to 2018-04-30
Intravenous (IV) drug administration in healthcare facilities is costly, being estimated that 30-70% savings are obtained if the same therapy is self-administered SC. Furthermore, it is rapidly increasing the number of biologic therapeutics demanding delivery of large (>2ml) and highly viscous doses that must be injected slowly over minutes rather than seconds. These two facts support the strong need for WBIs.
oWBI main goal is to complete the development cycle of the Subcuject device platform (a disruptive WBI for subcutaneous self- administration of drugs) and implement the necessary business-related activities to overcome the remaining barriers for rapid and efficient market uptake.
Subcuject’s impact and benefits reach not only the customers (Pharma companies) and end-users (Patients) but also other players across the supply chain/value chain, such as payers, prescribes and the overall society.
