Dry powder formulation
No need for using solvents for drug loading;
No need for rotary evaporation, spray-drying or freeze-drying;
No need for thermoplastic polymers to make solid dispersion;
High physical-chemical stability.
Directly compressed tablets
No need to formulate poorly soluble drugs as soft gel capsules;
No need to formulate poorly soluble drugs as salt conjugates or co-crystals;
The excipient acts both as a drug carrier and tablet binder.
Readily up-scaleable production
Facile manufacturing based on widely available industrial equipment;
Minimum number of processing steps;
Minimum number of excipients;
Small industrial footprint;
Sustainable and responsible manufacturing.
Development of new products for proprietary substances: The platform can be used to revive industrial projects, where solubility of the active substance has been problematic and/or current approaches have been deemed insufficient.
Re-formulation of substances with known PK profile: The platform can be used to reformulate generic drugs to improve bioavailability and cost-efficiency.
Establishment of toxicity level for pre-clinical drug development: In order to evaluate the toxicity profile, it is important to achieve drug exposure at the highest possible dose during animal studies. A scientist needs to make a choice between salts and formulation. Our platform can help to establish the toxicity levels for drug base.
DE-RISKING PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT AND SHORTENING TIME TO MARKET
VELTIO PHARMA AB is an innovative pharmaceutical company that aspires to transform problem poorly soluble drugs into bestselling products with high bioavailability.
