The Shift to Customized Pharmaceuticals
 

As medical professionals and consumers shift from “sick care” to smart healthcare, demand is increasing for self-medication, home care, and customized therapies. In tandem with this shift in healthcare, the pharmaceutical industry is moving from a one-size-fits-all approach to more personalized solutions.

DuPont is on the leading edge of the shift from systemic small molecule pharmaceuticals to biologics and targeted therapies. Our drug delivery applications are more in-demand than ever because of the aging population, an increase in chronic disease, and patients’ increased access to care.
