Solubility-enhancing Excipient for Injectable Drug Formulations Wins Prestigious CPhI Barcelona Award
Approximately 60% of new chemical entities (NCEs) under development, and more than 40% of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) in reformulation are poorly water-soluble with each requiring tailored solutions. With several solubilizing excipients on the market, it is impossible to find a one-size-fits-all solution. Filling a crucial gap in the market, Apisolex™ Polymer enables novel brick-dust and grease ball APIs to be formulated, as well as providing existing APIs with the option to be repurposed or reformulated via the FDA’s 505(b)(2) regulatory pathway.
“By drawing on our 40+ year legacy, Lubrizol Life Science Health has developed a non-immunogenic, biocompatible, and biodegradable alternative to PEG-based excipients. Apisolex™ Polymer offers oncology, CNS, and high-value orphan drug formulators the tools necessary to unlock the potential of previously hard-to-formulate APIs, providing patients with access to life-changing therapeutics that otherwise may not have made it to market.” – Gaurab Sengupta, Senior Global Business Director, Pharmaceuticals & Nutraceuticals, Lubrizol Life Science Health.
