Report Description

Drug-device combination products introduced a new dynamic on medical product development, regulatory approval, and commercial collaboration that provide valuable lessons for the development of new generations of combination products.  For instance, Boston Scientific in November 2019, announced the launch of two devices within the peripheral drug-eluting product portfolio during separate late-breaking clinical trial presentations at the Vascular Inter Ventional Advances (VIVA) meeting in Las Vegas. The products presented are the “Ranger Drug-Coated Balloon (DCB),” as well as the “Eluvia Drug-Eluting Vascular Stent (DES),” which exhibited the highest primary patency reported to date for the treatment of femoropopliteal disease in a U.S. pivotal trial with a DCB or DES. Also, a surge in cases of chronic diseases like cancer, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, and diabetes are adding pace to the growth of this market. According to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2020, chronic diseases cases accounts for almost three-quarters of all deaths worldwide, and that 71% of deaths was due to ischemic heart disease (IHD), 75% of deaths are due to stroke, and 70% of deaths are due to diabetes will occur in developing countries.


Moreover, the increasing investment for advanced product development along with constant research activities is also adding a pace to the growing demand for drug-device combination products. For instance, “Leviticus Cardio”, inventors of the versatile transcutaneous Coplanar Energy Transfer (CET) system, in collaboration with “Jarvik Heart”, have granted USD 950,000 funding from the Israel-U.S. Binational Industrial Research and Development (BIRD) Foundation. Furthermore, the rising technological innovation in devices is also promoting the growth of drug-device combination products globally. For instance, FDA approves “Trelegy Ellipta” as the first once-daily single inhaler triple therapy for the treatment of both asthma and COPD in the United States in September 2020. Also, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all industries in different ways. The private health care sector has been obstructed majorly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many clinical trials have been suspended during the pandemic. To restart the clinical trials, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released some guidelines during the COVID-19 emergency in March 2020. These guidelines were further updated on July 02, 2020. The guidelines include general considerations to assist sponsors and researchers, which ensure the safety of testing members and compliance with good clinical practice for the duration of the COVID-19 emergency.
