June 2021

In the next issue of Pharma Technology Focus, we find out about an orally administered Covid-19 vaccine being developed by Oramed Pharmaceuticals and Premas Biotech, and ask how such a development could impact future vaccine rollout plans. Plus, we take a look at rare disease drug access programmes across the pharma industry to uncover the logistical challenges of getting medications to resource-limited countries.

Elsewhere, we examine the benefits and challenges involved in putting patients closer to the heart of clinical research, and following the US Food and Drug Administration’s decision to reopen a study to determine how drug names influence consumers and healthcare providers, we explore the process of designing and regulating new drug names.

Also, we dig into the importance of academic-industry collaboration to find out how licensing and partnerships be improved, and finally, we round up the key lessons that the pharma supply chain can learn from the Covid-19 pandemic.
