Publication Eye project OCDC
Our researchers, Christian J.F. Bertens, Marlies Gijs, Frank J.H.M. van den Biggelaar and Rudy M.M.A. Nuijts from Maastricht UMC+ and the Maastricht University got their research done for the OCDC, The Ocular Coil Drug Delivery Comfort Trial, published. The project is looking for a better replacement for drug delivery formulations such as eyedrops or ointments. 'Topical drug delivery devices: A review' was published in Elsevier, Experiment Eye Research. You can find it here.
In this publication they address the unmet need of ophthalmic drug delivery devices. They state that: 'Only by working together (academia, industry and authorities) and by exploring parallel strategies the therapeutic effect of drug treatments can be improved.'
Let's work on this together!
