    The Pre-filled Syringes San Francisco Conference will be presenting a variety of topics, below are some key presentations:

    ‘Developing custom syringes for highly viscous formulations’
    • Gilead and West are developing a custom cyclic olefin polymer (COP) syringe to enable delivery of viscous formulations through subcutaneous injection needles
    • Due to the high injection forces required, syringe stresses and failure modes had to be well understood to inform design improvements
    • The final syringe design can withstand forces in excess of 500N, while remaining ISO 11040-6 compliant to facilitate fill/finish activities

    ‘Connected devices and their potential to deliver user benefits’
    • What are connected systems of devices and why would a sponsor elect to develop a connected system
    • Potential benefits of connected devices and the trade-offs
    • Usability considerations of connected devices
    Katie Atkinson, Manager, Human Factors Engineering, Bigfoot Biomedical

    ‘Post-Market safety reporting (PMSR) for combination products – Implementation’
    • Summary of implemented updates to the guidance for industry
    • Strategies in implementation of PMSR and its application to drugs and devices
    • Industry response and developments - what have we seen in industry already and what is still needed?
