From a pill every few hours to an injection every few months


About the research

Drugs in pill form work quickly, but their effects wear off just as fast. That's why people with chronic conditions have to take a pill every few hours. What if we could administer drugs in a different form so that they not only work fast but also last for weeks or even months? We can achieve this with long-acting injections, as Fatima Anjum (TU Dortmund & Janssen Pharmaceutica) explains 'crystal' clear in this video 😉
