Tracks/Sessions

Track 1: Nanotechnology in Drug Delivery

Nanotechnology became the driving force behind various evolutionary and revolutionary changes in the scientific field.  Nanotechnology drug delivery enhanced the efficacy of available medicaments and enabled to create entirely new medical products. Nanotechnology has opened the door to new approaches to stimulate the reconstruction of complex tissue structures. Nanoparticles are used to deliver the drug to the specific diseased cell where particles attract to the diseased cell and provide treatment. By this unique technique, we can minimize the damage of healthy cells in the body.

Nanotechnology-dependent detectors e.g. nanowires, nanotubes, nanoparticles, cantilevers, and nano arrays consume low sample and enhance fast detection of disease. Target based Nano probes (e.g. magnetic nanoparticles, quantum dots, and carbon nanotubes) provide a faster, less invasive, and more accurate way for early diagnose of diseases. Reporting in vivo efficacy of therapeutics and helping surgeons to locate tumors are other opportunities of nanotechnology.

Some nanotechnology-based drugs that are commercially available are- Abraxane, approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat breast cancer. Doxil was approved by the FDA for the treatment of ovarian cancer.

The global nanotechnology drug delivery market was valued at US$ 41,062.5 Mn in 2014 and is projected to reach US$ 118,527.2 Mn by 2023, expanding at a CAGR of 12.5% from 2015 to 2023. 

Track 2: Targeted drug delivery: Advances and Approaches

Targeted drug delivery is a kind of smart drug delivery, a method of delivering medication to a patient in a manner that increases the concentration only in particular part of the body. The goal of a targeted drug delivery system is to prolong, localize and have a protected drug interaction with the diseased tissue. The advantages of the targeted drug delivery are 1. reduction in the frequency of the dosages taken by the patient 2. have a more uniform effect of the drug, 3.reduction of drug side-effects 4. reduce fluctuation in circulating drug levels 5.maintain the required plasma and tissue drug levels in the body. In chemotherapy only a small portion of the medication reaches the affected organ and roughly 99% of the administered drug does not reach the tumor site.

While designing a targeted drug delivery, the following criteria must be taken into consideration: the drug properties, the route of drug delivery, the targeted site, disease and the side effects of drug. There are two kinds of targeted drug delivery: active targeted drug delivery, such as antibody medications, and passive targeted drug delivery, such as the enhanced permeability and retention effect.

Track 3: Innovative Drug delivery technologies

Drug delivery is the action of administering a pharmaceutical drug into the body for a therapeutic effect through various routes. Drug delivery technologies modify drug release profiles, pharmacokinetic parameters for the benefit of improving product efficacy and safety, as well as patient convenience and compliance. Conventional routes cannot deliver compounds such as proteins, antibodies, vaccine and gene based drugs because these routes are susceptible to enzymatic degradation or cannot be absorbed into the systemic circulation efficiently due to large molecular size and charge issues.

Technologies include digitally controlled needle-free devices, sustained and controlled transdermal delivery technology, fiber-based technology for implantable devices, targeted penetration matrix technology for non-invasive delivery and location-specific nano devices for chemotherapy delivery. Many innovative technologies for effective drug delivery have been developed, including implants, nanotechnology, cell and peptide encapsulation, micro fabrication, chemical modification.

Biotechnology advances are leading to develop medications that can target diseases more effectively and precisely. If a drug is more targeted, the chance of triggering drug resistance is lower, a cautionary concern surrounding the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics.

Nanotechnology delivers drugs to targeted cells using nanoparticles. The overall drug consumption and side-effects are lowered significantly by depositing the active drug in the particular site and preventing administration of booster doses. Nanotechnology based devices are less invasive, can be safely implanted inside the body and biochemical reaction times are much shorter.

Track 4: Recent Advances in Drug Delivery

The goal of drug delivery systems is to deliver medications to specific target parts of the body through a medium that can control the therapy’s administration. To achieve this goal, researchers are turning to advances in the worlds of micro- and nanotechnology.

The recent advances in the peptide and protein drug delivery systems are PEGylation and Depo-foam technology. Cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) act as cargo carriers and constitute a current hotspot in medical research. CPPs to transport hydrophilic macromolecules into cells, thus, assist to execute biological functions. CPPs do not destroy the integrity of the cell membranes, and are considered more efficient and safe and providing new avenues for research and applications in life sciences.

Biologics can be re-engineered for BBB transport with the use of molecular Trojan horse technology.

Needle-free drug delivery systems are novel ways to introduce various medicines to patients. PowderJect Pharmaceuticals one of the first companies to develop a needle-free technology for injecting powdered drugs into the skin. Needle free devices can take the form of power sprays, edible products, inhalers, and skin patches

Transdermal patches are user-friendly, convenient, painless and offer improved patient compliance.

Nano drug delivery systems such dendrimers, fullerence, nano pores, nanotubes, nano shells, quantum dots, , nanovaccines, revolutionized drug delivery systems. Thus nanomaterial can be used for strategic development of new drug delivery systems and reformulate existing.

Anti-cancer drugs such as loperamide and doxorubicin bound to nanomaterial have been shown to cross the blood-brain barrier.

Track 5: Nanoparticles: Innovations and Trends

Nanoparticles are generally less than 100 nm in dimension and consist of different biodegradable materials such as natural or synthetic polymers, lipids, or metals. Nanoparticles are taken up by cells more efficiently than larger micromolecules. Nanoparticles have high surface area to volume ratio thus allowing many functional groups for attachement. Additionally, the small size of nanoparticles allows them to accumulate at tumor sites.     

Nano particles can (1) enhance the therapeutic efficacy and minimize adverse reactions associated with available drugs; (2) enable new classes of therapeutics; and (3) encourage the re-investigation of pharmaceutically suboptimal but biologically active new molecular entities that were previously considered undevelopable.

Nanoparticles are used in targeted drug delivery to improve the uptake of poorly soluble drugs. Nano particles with different compositions and biological properties have been extensively investigated for drug and gene delivery application.

According to BCC Research the global market for nanoparticles in the life science forecast to grow to more than $79.8 billion by 2019, to register a healthy compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22%.

Track 6: Drug Delivery: Facing Challenges

Innovative, non-invasive delivery include drivers like improvement of patient acceptability and compliance ,improvement in public safety, decrease of administration costs and a reduction of adverse effects. Enzyme degradation, acid degradation, hydrolysis and low permeability of intestinal epithelium in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract surfaces make oral administration a non-viable delivery method. Conventionally, many drugs such as proteins are administered parenterally since oral administration cause low bioavailability in the GI tract. It has become a challenge to achieve consistent and adequate bioavailability levels for oral administration.

Economic and financial barriers also stand in the way of implementing nano medicine. The limited availability of reimbursement by public and private health insurers for expensive new diagnostic tests has emerged as a major impediment to the deployment of personalized medicine. Nanoproducts encounter even greater hurdles because of their costs and complexity,  cytotoxicity of nanoparticles are  main concern of future research.

Advances in medical science, research and development (R&D) are changing the dynamics of the life science industry, including pharmaceuticals and healthcare. The development of new drugs necessitates the development of different drug delivery systems, which is further driven by innovation in technology, R&D and scientific advancements. Advances in understanding human biology, diseases and medical treatments are opening new opportunities in the pharmaceutical industry. A drug delivery system is an important area where the need for better technologies for drug administration or delivery is in demand

Track 7: Drug delivery through BBB

One of the biggest challenges in the drug development for central nervous system (CNS) disorders is achieving significant blood–brain barrier (BBB) penetration.

Several drugs do not have high lipid solubility, low molecular size and positive charge to traverse BBB. The problems associated with the blood–brain barrier are1. The drug produced allows only a small amount to pass through the barrier 2. Binding to other proteins in the body renders the drug ineffective or pass through the barrier with the adhered protein. 3. The presence of enzymes in the brain that could render the drug inactive. All of these problems must be addressed and accounted to deliver effective drugs to the brain.

Nano biotechnology-based delivery methods provide the best approach to deliver drugs. Several developed strategies, enhance the capacity of drug molecules to cross the BBB by modifying the drug or by coupling it to a vector for receptor-mediated or adsorption-mediated transcytosis.

By 2019, compounds using BBB technology in the clinical development would reach approximately eight. The global market for BBB technologies was valued at $38.7 million in 2014. The market is expected to grow to $471.5 million by 2019, and register a tremendous 64.9% CAGR from 2014 through 2019.

Track 8: Novel Drug Delivery Systems

It is defined as the method by which a drug is delivered can have a significant effect on its efficacy i.e. the drug become more efficacious in order to minimize drug degradation, drug adverse effect, and in order to increase the drug bioavailability to produce better therapeutic effect. NDDS covers various aspects like pharmacokinetics & pharmacodynamics, non-specific toxicity, immunogenicity, bio recognition, and drug’s efficacy based on preferable approaches that include polymer science, pharmaceutical technology, dispensing pharmacy, packaging technology, bio conjugate chemistry, and molecular biology. NDDS based on two mechanism i.e. physical and biochemical

Track 9: Drug delivery vehicles

A drug carrier improves the selectivity, effectiveness, and safety of drug administration. Drug carriers are primarily used to control the release of a drug into systemic circulation. This can be accomplished either by slow release of the drug over a long period of time (typically diffusion) or by triggered release at the drug's target by stimulus, such as changes in pH, application of heat, and activation by light. Drug carriers improve the bioavailability of poorly water soluble or membrane permeable drugs.

An ideal drug delivery vehicle must be non-toxic, biocompatible, non-immunogenic, biodegradable and must avoid recognition by the host's defense mechanisms. Different methods of drug attachment to the carrier include adsorption, integration into the bulk structure, encapsulation, and covalent bonding. As many drug delivery carriers are involved in delivery of the drug, the conference can be re-named as Drug Delivery carrier conference

Track 10: Protein, Peptide and Gene Drug Delivery

Peptides and proteins have great potential as drug delivery. Compared with the small size drugs, peptides and proteins can be highly selective as they have multiple points of contact with their target. Increased selectivity also result in decreased side effects and toxicity. Peptides can be designed to target a broad range of molecules and provide opportunities in oncology, immunology, infectious disease and endocrinology. The market for peptide and protein drugs is estimated to be greater than US$40 billion/year, or 10% of the pharmaceutical market .At present there are over 100 approved peptide-based drugs in the market. The pharmaceutical scientists have approaches to develop the protein and peptide delivery formulations by noninvasive routes.

Gene therapy is defined as incorporation of genetic material i.e, DNA or RNA, in the cellular gene regulation system, either to correct the expression of a malfunctioning gene or to modulate the cellular functions. Nanotechnology advancements have given rise to the development of nanoparticle-DNA delivery systems. Gene delivery is an integral part of genome evolution. Gene delivery utilizes non-immunogenic vectors capable of cell specificity that can deliver an adequate amount of transgene expression to cause the desired effect. Advances in gene therapy have enabled a variety of new methods and gene targets to be identified for possible applications. Gene delivery has been utilized to generate a hybrid biosynthetic vector to deliver a possible vaccine.

Track 11: Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Studies

Pharmacokinetics describes how the medicament gets influenced after administration, followed by absorption, distribution, metabolism mechanisms and excretion of the drug substance. Pharmacokinetic knowledge assist prescribers to adjust dosage more accurately and precisely. Clinical kinetics is defined as the applications of pharmacokinetic principles in the safe and adequate management of individual patient. Toxic pharmacokinetics is defined as the applications of pharmacokinetic principles to the design, behaviour and interpretation of drug safety evaluation studies.

Pharmacodynamics describes biochemical, physiological, and molecular effects of drugs on the body and involves receptor binding (including receptor sensitivity), post receptor effects, and chemical reactions. The pharmacologic response depends on the drug binding to its target. Pharmacodynamics is defined as the relationship between drug concentration at the site of action and the resulting effect. The effect of a drug present at the site of action is measured by drug-receptor binding.

Track 12: Drug Discovery, NCEs and Drug Development

Drug discovery is the process through which potential new medicines are recognized and comprises an extensive range of scientific disciplines, including biology, chemistry and pharmacology. The integration of pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetic parameters in non-clinical pharmacology studies is a key characteristic in drug discovery for efficacy and safety assessment, in the particular for the translation from the non-clinical to  clinical field and process of drug discovery include  the identification of candidates, synthesis, characterization, screening, and assays for therapeutic efficacy whereas modern drug discovery involves the identification of screening hits, medicinal chemistry and optimization of those hits to increase the affinity, selectivity, efficacy/potency, metabolic stability, and oral bioavailability. The "final product" of drug discovery is a patent on the potential drug.

FDA provides scientific and regulatory advice needed to bring new therapies to market. In 2018 FDA has approved 43 new drugs which are presently in the market. Each year, CDER approves series of new drugs and biological products. The availability of new drugs and biological products often means new treatment options for patients and advances in health care. Some of these products are often innovative new products that never before have been used in clinical practice. A new chemical entity (NCE) is a drug that contains no active moiety that has been approved by the FDA in any other application submitted under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act

Track 13: Pharmacovigilance, Risk Management and Drug safety

Pharmacovigilance and Risk Management comprises set of pharmacovigilance activities and interventions designed to identify, characterise, prevent or minimise risks relating to medicinal and therapeutic products including the assessment of the effectiveness of their clinical interventions and combination therapies. Drug industry need to promote companies in pharmacovigilance practice to use information technology and to review softwares used in pharmacovigilance and clinical trials. Monitoring unlicensed, off labels and orphan drugs is major task in risk management. Many experts from different pharmacovigilance CRO's , pharmacovigilance service providers and industrial delegates are participating in this conference to share their knowledge and discuss about the new updates. Pharmacovigilance legislation gives an outlook on the rules and laws to follow in Pharmacovigilance practice. The Role of Pharma industries in the improvement of pharmacovigilance system is very crucial to maintain the safety data, Detection and Evaluation of drug safety signals through manual and medical devices reporting. Pharmacovigilance scope also deals as Ecopharmacovigilance (EPV), pharmacoenvironmentology and pharmacovigilance in herbal medicines

Prescription Safety is the pharmacological science ensuring security and related to the aggregation, area, assessment, watching, and repugnance of hostile side effects with pharmacological movement of pharmaceutical things. As demonstrated by US FDA a drug is seen as protected by looking, its collecting technique and delayed consequences of animal testing and clinical preliminaries. In this track, we look at Drug security and its applications in various fields, for instance, Software, Training et cetera.

Track 14: Smart Materials for Drug Delivery

Materials are called “smart” when these materials have the ability to respond to stimuli and have high potential in novel drug delivery systems. The delivery of drugs to specific locations in the human body using smart materials has been approaching the forefront place in research for the past few decades. Materials for delivering drugs must design drug carriers that do not interact non-specifically within the body.

Polymers have played an important role in the advancement of drug delivery technology by providing controlled release of therapeutic agents in constant doses over long periods and release of both hydrophilic and hydrophobic drugs. The greatest advantage of polymers  is their ability to chemical modification, resulting in defined chemical composition, customized surface functionality and the potential for defined three-dimensional structures. Several polymers widely used in clinical therapies are synthetic polymers and natural polymers.

Nano materials are used in controlled drug delivery. Drug-delivery systems can be synthesized with controlled composition, shape, size and morphology. Nanoparticles surface properties can be manipulated to increase solubility, immunocompatibility and cellular uptake.

Natural gums are one of the major areas for applications in the drug delivery system because of their wide availability, inexpensiveness.

Track 15: Herbal Novel Drug Delivery

Novel drug delivery system addresses the limitations of the traditional drug delivery systems. We have a vast knowledge of Ayurveda and the drug delivery system used for administering the herbal medicine to the patient is traditional. So it is important to integrate novel drug delivery system and Indian Ayurvedic medicines to combat serious diseases.

Reasons for using herbal medicines are 1.  Growing concern over the reliance and safety of drugs 2.Failure of modern medicine to treat most common health conditions   3. Natural medicines are producing better results without side effects.

 

Novel herbal formulations like polymeric herbal Nano-carriers, phytosomes, herbosomes, pro-niosomes, Nano emulsions, microsphere, transferosomes, implants and ethosomes has been reported using bioactive plant extracts. Advantages include Solubility, bioavailability enhancements, reduced toxicity, improved pharmacological activity, sustained delivery, and protection from physical and chemical degradation. Many formulations are produced from various herbal drugs such as curcumin, quercetin, silybin, bilobalide, marsupsin, andrographolide.

According to WHO because of poverty and lack of access to modern medicine as well as self-belief, about 65-80% of the world's population living in developing and developed countries depends on plants for primary health.

Track 16: Pre-formulation & Formulation Aspects

Pre-formulation studies are an essential aspect for various phases of clinical trials. Pre- formulation studies act as the preliminary step as well as the scientific foundation for formulation design and development. These studies provide guidance in selection of drug, excipients, to determine chemical composition, physical pattern and assist in adjustment of pharmacokinetic profiles. Improving public safety measures and intensifying product quality are the other characteristics.

The main purpose of pre-formulation studies is to enhance compatibility with the other ingredients and develop elegant, stable, potent and safe dosage form. Physico-chemical parameters, drug solubility studies, partition coefficient, dissolution kinetics, polymorphism and stability profiles play a significant role in pre-formulation studies. These studies furnish the information regarding the degradation process, toxic effects and adverse conditions. So Pre-formulation is an interdisciplinary basis in drug development.

Formulation is defined as the method in which different chemical substances including the main active ingredient are compounded to produce a final dosage form. Developed formulations should be stable, safe and acceptable to the patient.

Track 17: Novel Vaccine Delivery Systems

Vaccine is a material that induces an immunologically mediated resistance to a disease but not necessarily an infection. Vaccines are generally composed of killed or attenuated organisms or subunits of organisms or DNA encoding antigenic proteins of pathogens. Vaccines though exceptionally selective and specific in reacting with antibodies often fail to show reactions in circumstances such as shifts in epitopic identification center of antibody and are poorly immunogenic. These vaccines require boosting with agents called adjuvants in order to induce an effective immunity. Adjuvants potentiate the immunostimulatory property of the antigen and are non-immunogenic, nontoxic, and biodegradable in nature.

Conventional immunization regimen involves prime doses and booster doses. Immunization failed as patients neglect the booster doses. These reasons necessitated the development of new generation of prophylactic and therapeutic vaccines to promote effective immunization. Vaccines allow for the incorporation of doses of antigens so that booster doses are no longer necessary as antigens are released slowly in a controlled manner. Attempts are being made to deliver vaccines through carriers as they control the spatial and temporal presentation of antigens to immune system thus leading to their sustained release and accurate targeting. Carrier systems such as liposomes, microspheres, nanoparticles, dendrimers, micellar systems, ISCOMs, plant-derived viruses are being investigated and developed as vaccine delivery systems

Track 18: Novel Drug Delivery: 2D & 3D Printing applications

Activities have been increased regarding the development and research on various printing techniques in fabrication of dosage forms. These technologies offer flexibility in manufacturing, potentially pave the way for personalized dosing and tailor-made dosage forms.

Drug delivery from 3-dimensional (3D) structures is a rapidly growing area of research. 3DP can fabricate solid dosage forms with variable densities and diffusivities, complex internal geometries, multiple drugs and excipients.

3DP uses computer aided technology and programme to transform 3D computer aided designs (CAD) into life-changing products. These design more effective and patient-friendly pharmaceutical products as well as bio-inspired medical devices. Levetiracetam (SPRITAM®) tablet a pharmaceutical product is developed by using 3DP technology.

3DP offers advantages like (a) high production rates due to its fast operating systems, (b) ability to achieve high drug-loading with much desired precision and accuracy especially for potent drugs that are applied in small doses, (c) reduction of material wastage which can save in the cost of production and (d) amenability to broad types of pharmaceutical active ingredients including poorly water-soluble, peptides and proteins, as well as drug with narrow therapeutic windows.

3D structures can be printed on a variety of surfaces with characteristic permeability, porosity, hydrophobicity/hydrophilicity and surface energy. Scientists in collaboration with CAD designers have produced innovative medical devices ranging from pharmaceutical tablets to surgical transplants of the human face and skull, spinal implants, prosthetics, human organs and other biomaterials.

Track 19: Clinical Research and Clinical Trials

Clinical trial is a part of clinical research that follows a regulated protocol, or plan of action. Clinical trials are primarily performed to get data on safety and efficacy of the new developed drug, this data is mandatory for further approval of the drug and to bring it into the market. Clinical trials, especially those taking a gander at new medications, regularly begin after effective creature examines. The most encouraging medicines at that point move into clinical trials.

There are four classifications of clinical trials. The fourth happens after the FDA has cleared a specific medication or treatment and keeps on following the security of the treatment.  A clinical review includes inquire about utilizing human volunteers (likewise called members) that is proposed to add to therapeutic learning. Test potential medicines in human volunteers to see whether they ought to be endorsed for more extensive use in the all-inclusive community

The global clinical trials market size was valued at USD 40.0 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% until 2025.

The interventional study design is the most prominent method of conducting clinical trials across with globe. According to statistics provided by the U.S. FDA, over 126,000 trials are currently being conducted by means of this method. Based on indication, the oncology segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth.

Track 20: Pharmaceutical Regulatory affairs and Intellectual Property Rights

Regulatory affairs is a comparatively new profession which developed from the desire of governments to protect public health by controlling the safety and efficacy of products in areas including pharmaceuticals , veterinary medicines, medical devices, pesticides, agrochemicals, cosmetics and complementary medicines. Regulatory Affairs is involved in the development of new medicinal products from early on, by integrating regulatory principles and by preparing and submitting the relevant regulatory dossiers to health authorities. Regulatory Affairs is actively involved in every stage of development of a new medicine and in the post-marketing activities with authorized medicinal products. The Regulatory Affairs department is an important part of the organizational structure of pharmaceutical industry. Internally it liaises at the interphase of drug development, manufacturing, marketing and clinical research. Externally it is the key interface between the company and the regulatory authorities.

Track 21: Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Scale Up Process

The biopharmaceutical sector in US enjoys 17% of all domestic R&D funded by the country and in return gave $2.5 trillion cumulative addition in economic output in 2016. Companies engaged in the brand name pharmaceutical manufacturing have grappled in recent years owing to the largest waves of drug patent expirations in history. As a consequence enabling low-price generic drugs to inundate the market.  Many brand name pharmaceutical manufacturers have contended with intensifying competition from generic manufacturers, cutting into revenue growth. Until the next the five years till 2022, investments in research and development that generate a high return will occur as many pharmaceutical manufacturers strengthen their drug pipeline with orphan drugs.

Recently, process engineers have shown inclination to single-use, modular and continuous manufacturing technologies to improve efficiency and minimize scale-up and technology transfer challenges in the pharmaceutical industry. Lot of these innovations are driven by updates instigated by the FDA. The changes are inevitable; especially in the already aging biopharmaceutical sector of the industry, where original processes are often overly complex, and are characterized by inefficiency, and occasionally, inherent unpredictability.

Track 22: Pharmaceutical Chemistry

Pharmaceutical chemistry is a branch at the intersection of chemistry, especially synthetic organic chemistry, and pharmacology and various biological specialties, where they participate in the design of drugs, chemical synthesis and development for the market, or bioactive molecules (drugs).
