Prolonging the Therapeutic Effect and Minimizing Side Effects with Oral Modified Release

Oral dosage forms are the predominant delivery system on the market due to the versatility to release the drug in the GI-tract and the acceptance of patients to take their medication orally. Controlled release systems are advantageous for many APIs because they circumvent early drug degradation in the i.e. stomach, are able to maintain drug therapeutic levels especially for drugs with a short biologic half-life, avoid side effects caused by high Cmax plasma peaks and improve patient compliance.
We work on different technologies to develop formulations able to achieve the desired therapeutic effect by delivering the API at a proper rate and time to the right part of the GI-tract for absorption.
