BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, November 20, 2017 / -- Building on the success of previous sell-out shows, SMi Group is delighted to announce the return of the 5th annual conference and exhibition: Pre-Filled Syringes - East Coast, taking place on April 11th – 12th 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

A rise in chronic diseases, improvements in technology and a growing demand for easy to use drug administration products has in recent years, created a booming Pre-Filled Syringes industry.

Some notable areas of increased attention have been the broader trends for combination products and biologics, as well as the move towards digital health and improving patient adherence due to increased self-administration figures. As well as these areas of lucrative opportunity, there are still several ongoing challenges that the key-thought leaders are battling to overcome such as chemical compatibility, user safety, high-volume and highly viscous formulation, and non-compliance.

Pre-Filled Syringes East Coast will once again play host to an international audience of drug delivery, medical device and PFS experts to discuss emerging trends and offer innovative solutions to the challenges facing the pre-filled industry.

Featured Speakers Include:

• Dhairya mehta, Associate Director of Device and Combination Products, Shire
• Stephen Barat, Head of Pre-Clinical and Early Clinical Development, Scynexis
• Susan Neadle, Head, Combination Products Center of Excellence, Sr. Director, Quality Engineering & Design-to-Value, Janssen Pharmaceuticals
