As companies dive deeper into the chemical well for new, patentable, and effective therapies, the most promising candidates are less soluble, less bioavailable, and more difficult to formulate to an effective therapeutic level. As a result, many commercially potential treatments are being left at the wayside in Preclinical and early clinical development due to the high costs and risks associated with bringing these to market.
Have you already experienced this in your own company?
The expertise within a company like Catalent can provide the technology, knowledge, and commercial scale to quickly provide formulation options that optimize the therapeutic profile of one of these products that otherwise would not progress down a development pathway. For example, Catalent continues to significantly invest in R&D and created recently, the non-gelatin OptiShell™ capsule that can provide modified release profiles and semi-solid fills, expanding the range of molecules capable of being encapsulated with Softgel technology. The innovations continue with the new OptiGel Bio™ technology has enabled the oral delivery of macromolecules while the OptiGel Lock™ technology provides multi-level resistance for products requiring abuse deterrence. These new technologies combined with the legacy of 80 years of development expertise allow Catalent to provide solutions to the most difficult formulation challenges.
