If you need a system that can deliver drugs at a specific rate, our drug delivery products can do that. Our drug delivery technologies offer our clients any release profile they require, specially tailored for their specific application.
CUSTOMIZED POLYMERS FOR DRUG DELIVERY
Poly-Med, Inc. offers a wide range of absorbable polymers, which are applicable for drug delivery, as inactive excipients. These polyester-based polymer excipients allow for facile processing with active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and customizable continued release profiles.
Polymers for drug delivery can range from preformed lactide-co-glycolide articles, such as microspheres, particulates, or other articles that can also be rate modifying agents. These materials can increase the permeability of solid constructs. Poly-Med polymers can also be tailored to incorporate a variety of chemistries allowing incorporation of multiple types of APIs with varying affinities for the polymeric carrier and a variety of release rates, based on the degradation time frame of the polymeric carrier.
Our Viscoprene™ depot system is a unique and novel liquid block copolymer that conforms to a semi-solid structure when exposed to aqueous settings. This highly customizable drug delivery platform can provide a drug release profile that is continuous.
With our Viscoprene™ system, or as a standalone additive, we offer our drug release modifier, Moduprene™, as a way to tailor drug release kinetics. This low-molecular weight particulate system is specifically designed for extending sustainable delivery from days to weeks.
