Research in biologics has become a hot area for many large pharmaceutical companies as expiring patents, a flood of generic drugs and slowing growth in small-molecule drug pipelines have led to decreasing revenues. GTCbio`s 5th Biological Therapeutics Conference provides participants with a current look at biologics and future projects with discussions regarding developments in drug delivery techniques for biologics, modern vaccine development, antibodies, and novel protein and peptide delivery. Overcoming the issue of the role of biologics in drug discovery and how to improve upon the length of time a drug remains effective in the body will also be addressed.
