SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES

SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MEDICINAL PRODUCT AND MEDICAL DEVICE:
As you can see, the similarities between the two terms pertain to their purpose which is to treat, prevent or diagnose a disease. Medical devices also have an additional role of alleviating a medical condition. The fundamental difference between medicinal products and medical devices lies in their mode of action. Medicinal products’ mode of action is pharmacological, immunological or metabolic, while medical devices work through non-pharmacological, non-immunological and non-metabolic mechanisms and their function is achieved by physical means.
