Abstract
In summary, the 2009 International Symposium on Intelligent Drug Delivery Systems featured research in areas of great promise for new therapeutics. In particular, new micellar, liposomal, and hydrogel formulations allow for extended drug release, and new applications of water-insoluble drugs that are otherwise difficult to administer. Developments in nanotechnologies have produced materials that release drugs in a sequential manner or release complementary drugs under welldefined conditions. Specific targeting has advanced significantly, with clinically effective antibody-drug and radionuclide conjugates. Some of the challenges that lie ahead were illustrated by Hiroshi Kikuchi from Eisai Corporation in Japan and Kuchan Kimm of MSD Korea, the Korean branch of Merck & Co., both of whom discussed the difficulties in getting novel and expensive agents like those described in the meeting approved and widely utilized. However, as these agents progress through clinical trials and demonstrate activity beyond what is achievable with conventional agents, it is expected that they will comprise the drugs of the future. The next meeting will be held in May, 2010, at KIST in Seoul, South Korea.
