Mike Hooven is no stranger to the medical device industry – he has spent the last 30 years launching companies and developing technologies for a variety of clinical applications. So when he ventured into drug delivery, he knew that he needed to find out what people in the pharmaceutical industry needed.
A number of executives tipped him off that the industry was in search of a way to deliver high volume biologic drugs in an at-home setting, Hooven told Drug Delivery Business News. Using that knowledge, he launched Enable Injections in February of 2010.
The Ohio-based company has developed an on-body injector designed to deliver biologics in volumes ranging from 5 mL all the way up to 50 mL. As the rest of the drug-delivery world is beginning to recognize the need for such a device, Enable is busy establishing partnerships with pharma companies.
