BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, USA, November 22, 2016 / -- SMi Group is delighted to announce that an agenda has been released for the 2017 4th annual Pre-Filled Syringes East Coast show, set to take place on April 26th and 27th in Boston, Massachusetts.

Pre-Filled Syringes East Coast invites an audience of principle scientists, device manufacturers and PFS market professionals, to discuss the latest innovations and developments in pre-filled syringes; as well as hone in on industry challenges and regulatory compliance.

Conference Chair, Dhairya Mehta, Director from global biotechnology company - Shire, said:

"Pre-filled syringes have undoubtedly been one of the greatest platforms to modern medicine. Giving patients the power to handle and control their conditions and treatments has revolutionised many lives. Though market success is determined by numerous factors; pharmaceutical work with syringes and drug delivery devices is inherently underpinned by patient centricity, and therefore bears huge responsibility to provide safe, useable and effective products. Being such a complex industry, this comes coupled with intricate challenges, opportunities and competition between pharmaceutical and device developing companies. Where there is competition, there is innovation, and we should take this opportunity to learn, develop and improve our best practise and strategy for pre-filled syringes"
