Patients were reviewing a product which would offer significant improvement in survival, but would not be available for 5+ years. We needed to address packaging issues with all supply chain partners – distributing options around the world for testing.

The packaging must be easy to open, use and administer but childproof. Patients feel nauseous so sickly sweet taste must be avoided and the problem patients have with swallowing means large pills should be avoided.
