Enable Injections Presents A New Class of Injectors for Drug Delivery at PEPTalk, Drug Delivery Partnership Meetings

FRANKLIN, Ohio, Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A novel wearable injector slightly larger than an Oreo cookie may soon make it easy and painless for patients to self-inject prescription drugs in the large doses required to treat a wide range of disorders, including cancer, blood diseases, autoimmune deficiencies, and genetic disorders. 

An emerging biologic drugs market is expected to grow to $220B by 2018, according to analysts.   Many of these drugs will require a new type of injector that does not exist today for self-administration of high volumes and high viscosities.

Mike Hooven, Enable Injections LLC's founder and CEO, will present a new drug delivery technology that addresses these needs to pharmaceutical executives at two meetings this month:

  • PepTalk, a meeting for developers of protein and antibody therapeutics, January 13-17 in Palm Springs, CA
  • Drug Delivery Partnerships, for developers of new and repurposed drugs, January 27-29 in Boca Raton, FL

"Having an injector like this, especially one that decreases pain, opens the door to new pharmaceuticals that wouldn't be possible without this revolutionary device," says Gary Ansel, MD, Associate Medical Director of the OhioHealth Research and Innovation Institute in Columbus.  "We're talking potential for huge cost savings, reduced hospital stays, and increased patient compliance—all at the push of a button."

Currently available for investigational use only, Enable's bolus injector uses standard vials, can automatically mix powdered/liquid vials, and may deliver doses as large as 20cc.  Patients would wear the disposable device under their clothing and comfortably go about their business during the infusion.  

"Enable has a world-class design team that has developed a unique technology to address this exciting new opportunity.  We're looking forward to working with our pharmaceutical partners to introduce these products to market," says Hooven, a medical device veteran who previously founded AtriCure, the first device company to obtain FDA clearance for the surgical treatment of atrial fibrillation.
