Capsulution Nanosciences advances with drug delivery systems program
Further increase of capital strengthens development capacity
Over the next 12 months, the fresh capital will be used for the realization of supplementary preclinical trials with Capsulution's nanocapsules in order to validate their advantages in comparison to other common drug formulations in the area while transporting pharmaceutical agents within a living organism. The developers of Capsulution expect that the use of their nanocapsules will show a better performance in evaluating the bioavailability for poorly water soluble pharmaceuticals, resulting in a more effective and convenient therapy for the patient. Additional research is aiming for a targeted release of the medical substances within the organism in a time-controlled manner. The new effectiveness of the Capsulution nanocapsules could replace the common progress of multiple medication treatments especially for modern cancer therapy methods. For the international pharma clients, Capsulution's modern approach to encapsulation technology and innovative developments represents a unique opportunity to be a step ahead of the keen competition. A further part of the capital will be allocated to a joint development project in the medical device business aiming at combining Capsulution´s nano-encapsulation technology with medical products.
Capsulution develops innovative solutions for pharmaceutically active compounds - so-called drug delivery systems - to transport these safely and with increased effectiveness to the desired location of action in the human body. To achieve this, Capsulution applies its worldwide-patented nano-encapsulation technology – so called LBL-Technology®. Because of their minute size, their diverse functionalities as well as their highly reproducible production the capsules are suitable for a wide range of applications.
The latest shares have mainly been subscribed by Bernhard Penno, a private investor and entrepreneur from Germany. Another part of the shares has been subscribed as a follow-up investment by the KBB, a fund managed by BC Brandenburg Capital GmbH. "I'm fascinated by the strong benefit of Capsulution's products and their enormous market potential", said Bernhard Penno, the new private shareholder. "In addition, Capsulution's team is highly skilled and dedicated, thus ensuring a successful investment story to me."
