Drug Targeting

Drug Targeting to specific organs and tissues has become one of the critical endeavours of the century since the use of free drugs in conventional dosage forms generally involves difficulties in achieving the target site at the appropriate dose after or during a proper time period. Consequently, the search for new drug delivery approaches and new modes of action represent one of the frontier research areas. Major discussion on this session includes Applications of drug targeting, Targeting approaches, Issues in drug targeting, Brain targeted drug delivery system and Antibody targeted-drug conjugates. Pharmaceutica 2016 is considered to be a BBB drug delivery meeting and the conference offers more discussions on Challenges and advancements in blood brain barrier targeted drug delivery.
 
The global market for blood-brain barrier (BBB) technology for therapeutics reached $21.8 million in 2013. This market is expected to grow from $38.7 million in 2014 to $471.5 million in 2019, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 64.9% from 2014 through 2019.
 

Currently, the principal schemes of drug targeting include direct application of a drug into the affected zone, passive drug targeting (spontaneous drug accumulation in the areas with leaky vasculature, or Enhanced Permeability and Retention-EPR-effect), ‘physical’ targeting (based on abnormal pH value and/or temperature in the pathological zone), magnetic targeting (or targeting of a drug immobilized on paramagnetic materials under the action of an external magnetic field), and targeting using a specific ‘vector’ molecules (ligands having an increased affinity toward the area of interest).
