  • (1888PressRelease) July 11, 2019 - With the rising prevalence of respiratory diseases such as Asthma, cystic fibrosis and COPD, this group of diseases are now amongst the leading cause of death, affecting over 500 million adults and children worldwide. Lung cancer now accounts for over 50% of all respiratory disease related deaths in Europe, yet little work is being done to reduce this high mortality rate.

    Opportunities for drug development has effectively resulted in the global pulmonary and respiratory drug delivery market expecting to reach 64 billion USD (6.7% CAGR) by 2025. However, the unmet medical needs of respiratory disease sufferers remain.

    With this in mind, SMi’s Respiratory Drug Delivery conference is set to convene on 5th – 6th December in London.

    This year’s event 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. The conference will also be analysing the success of digital medical devices and connective health technology in aiding the diagnosis of severe asthma and COPD as well as investigate the developing issues surrounding pulmonary and nasal combination product design.

    Featured speakers include:
    1. Orla Ni Ogain, Pharmaceutical Assessor, MHRA
    2. Mark Milton-Edwards, Head of Products & Health Solutions, Teva Pharmaceuticals
    3. Gunilla Peterson, Senior and Innovation Director Inhaled Drug Delivery, AstraZeneca
