April 2020

In the next issue of Pharma Technology Focus, we explore the future of sustainability in the pharma industry, and find out the potential of synthetic DNA sequencing in medicine.

Also, we take a look at the state of cell and gene therapy trials in the UK, examine the debate around treatment of chronic Lyme disease, and explore the obstacles hindering opioid access in low-income countries.

Plus, we find out how the United Parcel Service is working to improve the tracking of medical packages, investigate whether the push to meet end-of-year drug approval deadlines is putting patients at risk, and examine what went wrong for Proteus Digital Health’s smart pill.
