Certain medicines, including biologics are injected into patients to avoid the biological degradation by enzymes which happens if they are administered orally and to allow for rapid delivery into the body's circulation.

When developing medicines that will be administered by injection the viscosity needs to be considered: high viscosity can lead to manufacturing challenges and can cause administration difficulties for patients. A range of substances can be added by scientists to develop an ideal formulation for such medicines, which can reduce viscosity by modifying intermolecular interactions in proteins.

Join MedImmune and AstraZeneca scientists to learn about formulation and find the best substance to add to our viscous medicine.
