Solid Dosage Forms
According to the Biopharmaceutical Classification System (BCS), more than 70% of the APIs used in pharmaceutical preparations are difficult to formulate due to poor solubility and/or permeabilities, and the majority of drug candidates have similar characteristics. Formulating these APIs into stable forms and achieving satisfactory active delivery and dissolution profiles is a key challenge for galenic scientists.
IOI Oleo PHARMA offers a variety of vegetable-derived mono-, di- and triglycerides for a wide range of dosage forms such as tablets, capsules, granules or powders.
The lipid nature of our products gives them an inherent compatibility towards these problematic API categories and can help to solve the galenic formulation hurdles. Most of our excipients are multifunctional and suitable for various drug delivery systems. Adopted dosing is a trajectory to accentuate certain characteristics and functionalities depending on the specific formulation task.
Technologies and techniques such as SEDDS, SMEDDS, SNEDDS, SLN, Hot Melt Coating (taste masking), Hot Melt Extrusion or Hot Melt Granulation can be applied to enable delivery or enhance the dissolution profile of poorly soluble drugs.
