Sustained release profiles and targeted delivery of pharmaceutical products
A matrix tablet is coated with functional polymers, followed by a blend of hydrophilic and hydrophobic polymers. Layered erosion and diffusion of the drug matrix tablet result in a controllable release. An effective solution for targeted drug delivery through customized and sustained release technology. Assists development of high-dosage and sustained release products for once-daily administration.
Customized release profiles, including zero-order release
This technology incorporates a blend of hydrophilic polymers that control drug release via diffusion through, and erosion of, a matrix tablet. Some layers contain drug substance; others are rate controlling polymers.
- Matrix tablet utilizes a combination of water soluble particles and active drug
- Suitable for high drug loading
- Supports sustained release, once a day dosing
