Respiratory Drug Conference

SMi Reports: The 2019 Respiratory Drug Delivery conference to host three interactive sessions this December.

The Respiratory Drug Delivery, taking place in London on 5th-6th December, will be hosting three interactive sessions as part of the two-day conference.

Topics for the 2019 event include:

  • Assessing novel technologies in improving respiratory drug delivery
  • Improving collaborative efforts and partnership to uncover novel drug target and meet the unmet needs of patients
  • Analysing current product design and development from both a safety and efficacy perspective but all those of the Quality-by-Design perspective
  • Adhering to regulatory updates within the global respiratory market

This year, SMi aims to bring together clinical researchers, respiratory drug manufacturers and solution providers to discuss the current research and developments in providing appropriate long-term treatments that adhere to patient’s needs.

Interactive Session: “Assessing an Effective Road Map in Managing Partnerships in Inhalers”

When it comes to effective management of partnerships between the person with asthma and the healthcare team, it’s important to understand and assess the key considerations. Education should be an integral part of all interactions between patient & HCP.

This session will assess the road map in managing and developing an effective road map for managing partnerships in inhalers.

Interactive Session: “Novel Approaches to characterise Aerosol Dynamics”

  • Introductory overview and case studies highlighting the reality of different characterisation approaches
  • Assessing Drug Delivery methods, discussing mechanisms and dynamic breakup
  • Reviewing the effects of the lung environment, including heat and relative humidity
  • Why do dynamics matter in drug delivery?
  • Analysing the importance of novel approaches to characterize aerosol dynamics

Interactive Session: “Device Discovery: How relevant is a device to the patient?”

Inhaled therapy ensures rapid and direct delivery to the site of pathology and can be provided to patients via a range of devices, including nebulizers, pressurized metered-dose inhalers (pMDIs), dry powder inhalers (DPIs), and soft mist inhalers (SMIs).

Despite the wide availability of these devices, poor inhaler technique and non-adherence to inhaled therapy has a marked effect on the therapeutic benefit of medication for asthma and COPD. This interactive discussion will assess the real-word study challenges.

There is an early bird saving of £300 available for bookings place before 30th September. Registrations can be made online at
