Track 1: Drug Targeting and Design

Target drug delivery system is a marked form of drug delivery system. The therapeutic response of a drug based upon the interaction of drug molecules with cell on cell membrane interconnected biological events at receptor sites in a concentration-dependent manner. Targeted drug delivery entail for selective and functional localization of pharmacologically active moiety at pre recognized (preselected) target in therapeutic concentration, while moderate its entrance to non-target normal cellular linings, thus reduce toxic effects and increase therapeutic index. Targeting of drugs to marked cells and tissues of the body without their becoming a part of systemic circulation is a tremendous novel idea. If a drug can be distribute in a form such that it reaches the receptor sites' inadequate concentration without interrupting in extraneous tissue cells.  

Track 2: Drug Delivery Technologies

Pharmaceutical drug delivery technologies magnify drug absorption, efficacy, and patient experience. Taste maskers increase the commercial viability of your pharmaceutical products by neutralizing the strong, bitter tastes of certain oral medical formulations. “A growing number of companies are investing in technologies counting  pen injectors , dry powder inhalers (DPIs),  auto-injectors, nasal sprays, buccal films, intraocular implants, orally disintegrating tablets (ODT), and infusion pumps, numerous of which are draft for use with biologic drugs. The evolutions in these areas are a result of their proven technology, high dose efficacy, and their capability to offer magnifies patient comfort and compliance.”

Track 3: Nanotechnology for better Drug Deliverability

Development and optimization of drug delivery approaches based in nanoparticles concern the early detection of cancer cells and/or specific tumour biomarkers, and the enhancement of the efficacy of the treatments applied. The usage of the ideal Nano-drug delivery system is obstinate principally depend on the biophysical and biochemical properties of the targeted drugs being adopted for the treatment. Thus, using green nanoparticles for drug delivery can reduce the side-effects of the medications. Moreover, naturalizations in nanostructures' hydrophobicity, size, surface changes, and shape, can further magnify the bioactivity of these nanomaterials.

Track 4: Novel Drug Delivery

Novel Drug Delivery System (NDDS) developed in order to reduce drug degradation, drug adverse effect, and in order to maximize the drug bioavailability (amount of drug available at site targeted region).  Site-specific drug delivery may be an active or passive process. Novel Drug Delivery System is a fusion of advanced skills and advanced dosage forms which are far fitter than conventional dosage forms. Evolution of an existing drug molecule from a conventional form to a novel delivery system can importantly improve its presentation in terms of patient acquiescence, security and potency.  In the form of a Novel Drug Delivery System, a live drug molecule can get a new life.

Track 5: Advanced Drug Delivery Systems

Advanced drug delivery systems (DDS) involves indubitable advantages for drug administration. Over the past three decades, new proposals have been recommended for the evolution of novel carriers for drug delivery. General concepts and emerging research in this field based on multidisciplinary proposals aimed to generate customized treatment for a broad range of highly universality diseases (e.g., cancer and diabetes). This review is made of two parts.

The second part supply information about the most advanced drug delivery devices using stimuli-responsive polymers.

Track 6: Drug Discovery and Development

Drug discovery is a versatile process by which new therapeutics are expanded. From initial target identification to late-stage clinical trials, a wide range of scientific personnel are required from across the biosciences and beyond. Biologists, protein scientists, medicinal chemists, pharmacologists, toxicologists and computational scientists all have key roles to play. This process is essential as it is the means by which new drugs, frequently with novel modes of action, become accessible to patients. 

Track 7: Cellular Targeting and Intracellular Delivery

Targeted drug delivery to diseased tissues suggests keen benefits for therapy, such as enlarge potency and decrease side effects. The evolution of targeted drug delivery systems is handling by various drug design concerns, election of suitable cell culture models, and analytical tools for their observation. Targeting cells depend on the hardware encoding biological information. Whereas a practical benefit of the genetic code has not been announce until now, that of the peptide code constituted by antibody-based conceptions entered clinical trials and few products are already on the market. Recently, usage of the sugar code also became evident as a promising alternative.

Track 8: Anti-Cancer Drug Delivery Agents

Most explored approaches to developing cell-based Anti-Cancer drug delivery systems (DDSs) are the encapsulation of the drug into the cells, cell surface modification, genetic modification of cells to secrete desired therapeutic proteins, and generating new biosynthetic systems. Tumour-tropism of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), as reveal in many studies, can be incorporate with expropriating engineering with anticancer genes to authorize their utilization in anticancer therapy. Furthermore, MSCs can be filled with nanoparticles (NPs), procure transport across the blood-brain barrier and accumulation of anticancer agent at the tumour site.

Track 9: Vaccine Drug Delivery Systems

Vaccines  are determine as “preparations given to patients to induce immune reaction dominant to the making of antibodies (humoral) or cell-mediated reaction that will help in attacking infectious agents or non-infectious state such as malignancies”. Sub-unit vaccines though exceptionally selective and specific in reacting with antibodies often fail to show such reactions in circumstances such as shifts in epitomic identification centre of antibody and are poorly immunogenic. Active immunization is a process of enlarging retardation to infection whereby microorganisms or products of their pursuit act as an antigen and restore certain body cell produce a antibodies with particular defensive capacity.

Track 10: Peptides and Protein Drug Delivery

Peptide and Protein drug delivery system are known as Novel Drug Delivery System. Proteins and peptides are the most abundant components of biological cells. They exist functioning such as enzymes, hormones, structural element, and immunoglobulin. The twenty various naturally transpire amino acids join with each other by peptide bonds and construct polymers mentioned to peptides and proteins. Although the variance between peptides and proteins are peptide having less than 20 amino acids, having a molecular weight less than 5000, while a protein contain 50 or more amino acids and its molecular weight lies high this value. Many pharmaceutical proteins and peptides are engrossed IM, IV and Subcutaneous routes of Absorption, but the oral route is more appropriate for absorption of protein as collate to others.

Track 11: Therapeutic Drug Carrier Systems

Therapeutic uses of a diverse of drug carrier systems have a compelling effect on the treatment and possible heal of various chronic diseases, including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, diabetes mellitus, cancer , psoriasis, , rheumatoid arthritis, HIV infection, infectious diseases, asthma, and drug addiction. Scientific attempts in these areas a versatile, including the biological, medical, physical, pharmaceutical, biological materials, and engineering fields. Drug carrier systems are now as important as the drug itself. Controlled release supply extends the delivery of a drug while sustaining its blood concentration within therapeutic limits.

Track 12: Routes of Drug Administration

Advances in drug formulations and inventive routes of administration have been made. Our comprehension of drug transport across tissues has enlarged. These transformation have frequently caused in enhance patient constancy to the therapeutic regimen and pharmacologic response. The administration of drugs by transdermal or trans mucosal routes provides the prevalence of being relatively painless.

This report focuses on the advantages and disadvantages of alternative routes of drug administration. Concerns of specific significance in the protection of pediatric patients, particularly elements that could guide to drug-related toxicity or adverse responses, are emphasized.

Track 13: Pharmaceutical Formulation Technologies

Pharmaceutical formulations are a combination of the pharmaceutically active ingredient and determine inactive ingredients. Solution formulations that are used for injectable dosage forms commonly have some inactive ingredients—such as buffering agents, water, co-solvents, and pH-adjusting agents. As a consequence, they are copious easy to formulate collate to some of the semisolid formulations used for topical administration. A pharmaceutical formulation is made of various formulation factors and process variables. The quantitative model-based pharmaceutical formulation includes initiating mathematical relations enclosed by the formulation variables and the emergency responses and extends the formulation cases. 

Track 14:  Drug Delivery through Blood-Brain Barrier (BBB)

The brain is shielded and segregated from the normal circulation by a highly adequate blood-brain barrier. This is characterized by relatively impermeable endothelial cells with tight junctions, enzymatic activity and active efflux transport systems. Therefore the blood-brain barrier is layout to allow discriminatory carriers of molecules that are important for brain function. This builds an extensive protest for the treatment of central nervous system diseases compelling therapeutic levels of the drug to get into the brain. Some small lipophilic drugs diffuse across the blood-brain barrier- sufficiently well to be efficacious. However, many potentially useful drugs are excluded. 

Track 15: Major Challenges in Drug Delivery

There are several biochemical limitations that upset effective drug delivery. Major Challenges in Drug Delivery System involves the delivery of ineffectively dissolvable drugs and bioavailability obstacles for inadequately solvent clinical applicants. Self-emulsifying drug delivery systems (SEDDS) have a supreme potential in increasing the oral bioavailability of poorly water-soluble drugs. There are a few Novel methodologies in the delivery which oversees the bioavailability obstacles and aids in the rationale formulation design of poorly soluble drugs. At present, the interest in non-invasive drug-delivery methods has been increasing. Nowadays, biopharmaceuticals generate a global income of $163 billion, making up about 20 percent of the total pharma market. As of now, it’s the fastest-growing part of the industry. The current annual growth rate of biopharmaceuticals more than 8 percent is double to that of conventional pharma, and is expected to continue in the future as well.
