Sessions & Tracks
SESSIONS AND TRACKS:
Track 1. Pharmaceutical industry academia collaboration:
We want pure science with capital. Research done by students, professors in colleges, universities and hospitals is an academic research on the other hand pharmaceutical industries deals with the discovery, development, production and finally sale of drug. For the development of new active pharmaceutical ingredient, the collaboration of academic research work and pharmaceutical industries is needed. The new drug discovery and development is very long process and is also based on our basic understanding of biological mechanism and identification of therapeutic targets. The flux of pharmaceutical industries has changed a lot over last 30 years. There has been hike in investments and fall in coming revenue for research and development section. The production of Merck, Eli Lilly, and Roche has remained constant over the last 60 years with one drug per year by each company. A marketed product cannot assure market benefit for further hundreds of years. Hence innovation is extremely important for such industries and this innovation comes from an academic research. Academic invention should be broadcasted to the industries so that its applications may get applied in healthcare systems.
Track 2: Advancements in bio therapeutics and drug delivery:
Bio therapeutic drug delivery system uses drug molecules made prepared from living organism naturally or in the laboratory. Fusion proteins, antibodies and therapeutic replacement enzymes are the major used bio therapeutic agents. Human insulin is the first bio therapeutic drug developed by recombinant-DNA technology and was approved by Eli Lily. These drugs have bought boom in the treatment of cancer, autoimmune disease, inflammatory diseases, haemophilia, cardio vascular disease and some genetic disorders. These drugs are differentiated as non-immune proteins, peptides and small therapeutic proteins and therapeutic antibodies and Fc- like fusion proteins. These bio therapeutic drugs act by different mechanism of actions like direct enzyme replacement, effector functions, cytokine and growth factor blockage, receptor blockage and modulation, toxin conjugation, stimulation of biological signal responses or by an enzyme inhibition. Hybridomas, human antibodies from mice, chimerization, humanization, glycoengineering and intrbodies are some carriers used in this drug delivery system.

It is a systematic approach to development starting with pre-planned agendas and centres over the understanding product, process and process control, on the basis of established scientific technology and quality risk management. It has come to practice to promote safe and effective drug supply and also claims to significantly improve manufacturing quality performance.
Nanoparticles carry encapsulated, dispersed or conjugated drugs having important properties which can enhance performance in a variety of dosage forms. They can be used for both passive and active drug targeting. Cell-specific targeting can be accomplished by attaching drugs to specially designed carriers and site-specific drug targeting can be achieved by attaching target ligands, such as aptamers or antibodies to the surface of nanoparticles. Nanostructures such as liposomes, polymers, dendrimers, silicon or carbon materials, and magnetic nanoparticles are used as carriers in nano drug delivery systems and provide cell-specific targeting. Nanoparticles are smaller than 100 nm. They have size range similar to proteins and other macromolecular structures within the living cells.

Track 12: Vaccine Drug delivery system:
Vaccine is a material that induces an immunologically mediated resistance to a disease but not necessarily an infection. Vaccines are generally composed of killed or attenuated organisms or subunits of organisms or DNA encoding antigenic proteins of pathogens. Sub-unit vaccines though exceptionally selective and specific in reacting with antibodies often fail to show such reactions in circumstances such as shifts in epitopic identification center of antibody and are poorly immunogenic. Delivery of antigens from oil-based adjuvants such as Freunds adjuvant lead to a reduction in the number of doses of vaccine to be administered but due to toxicity concerns like inductions of granulomas at the injection site, such adjuvants are not widely used. FDA approved adjuvants for human uses are aluminum hydroxide and aluminum phosphate in the form of alum. Hence, search for safer and potent adjuvants resulted in the formulation of antigen into delivery systems that administer antigen in particulate form rather than solution form.
