Iselin, USA (PRWEB UK) 19 March 2014
Pre-filled syringes and the coming wave of auto-injectors offer patients the opportunity to manage their own treatments. This also simultaneously vastly reduces care costs for sufferers of chronic illnesses with the potential of saving insurance companies billions of dollars annually. This perfect commercial storm is driving a tide of innovation in the sector, with advances in container materials and device design opening up a wave of biologics and large molecule drugs to self-application.
SMi are bringing together the leading figures from Europe and the US for Pre-Filled Syringes Americas Conference and Exhibition in two weeks’ time. This will be the largest gathering of industry professionals ever in the United States and it would be a pleasure to welcome you and your colleagues to this eminent delegation.
