How to improve the comfort of patient’s everyday life and make the therapy more convenient?

Today medicine is evolving constantly. Thanks to novel solutions patients can be treated comprehensively and the results of therapy are often better than some time ago.

It seems that some sci-fi scenario is now being realised in front of our eyes.

Now medicine may be efficiently transported to the particular organ in the organism. Patient does not have to swallow the tablet and expose himself to the troublesome side effects. In what way is it being realised? For example, in case of people who are ill with coronary artery disease appropriate cylindrical constructions called stents are being placed into the particular artery. These stents are sometimes covered with special polymer which includes particular immunosuppressive medicine, being progressively eluted. The connection between the function of the stent and the pharmacological function of drug is applied here. This sort of combination product must be scrutinized rigorously before it may be widely in use. Another interesting case is an injector which is applied with no needle. The appropriate dose of medicine may be injected into the body easily. It is a good option especially for children since they are often afraid of vaccinations. Normal vaccination sounds for them almost like the worst experience. Now it can be realised in more appropriate way, with no sobbing.

Novel solutions in the field of medicine create new chances in therapies. The road from the initial concept to the final device is often hard, but the smile on patients’ faces and their gratefulness is absolutely worth it.
