Inhalation Drug Delivery Association China Founded
The Inhalation Drug Delivery Association (IDDA) China was officially established at the Inhalation Drug Symposium held in Nanjing, China 8-9 November 2013
Presspart Manufacturing, the leading global supplier of metered-dose inhaler components including metered-dose inhaler cans and metered-dose inhaler actuators, were represented at the Symposium by Leo Shi, Presspart’s Asia-Pacific Senior Sales Manager. The Inhalation Drug Symposiums badge holders and lanyards were sponsored by Presspart as part of our support for this inaugural event.
Over 90 people attended the Symposium from more than 40 Chinese pharmaceutical companies, Universitites, laboratories and the medical profession. The Inhalation Drug Delivery Association (IDDA) China was established on the first day of the Symposium and nineteen IDDA committee members were elected. The IDDA China also agreed during its inaugural meeting to set up seven working groups to focus on areas such as regulation, R&D, eduction, and clinical use. The IDDA China will work to help improve the quality of inhalation products in China.
Leo Shi commented on the event “ As the market leader in supplying metered-dose inhaler components to the pharmaceutical market, it was only right that Presspart should attend. The Inhalation Symposium and all the speakers during the event were very informative and covered a wide range of topics including inhalation product quality, regulation, inhalation technology and the CFC to HFA transition in China”
Leo added “China has a very large population, and with over a quarter of the world’s smokers China has a high level of respiratory diseases such as COPD. The founding of the Inhalation Drug Delivery Association China is an important step to improving the inhalation drug delivery market within this very important and growing market. Presspart will be working with the IDDA China to ensure our metered-dose inhaler components are meeting China’s needs.
