Capsulution is Starting In-vivo Tests at Charité
Innovative Formulation of a Hormone Compound for Tumor Therapy
Dr. Volker Fehring, Project Director at Capsulution, comments, “The in-vivo studies allow the efficient investigation of these new kinds of depot formulations on the pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic and histological levels. In combination with appropriate bioequivalence tests, Capsulution will get a deeper insight into the complex release and effective mechanisms and thus make it possible to fine-tune these depot formulations in a targeted manner.”
Upon successful conclusion of the tests, Capsulution and its partner are planning to further develop the product as fast as possible. Few contingency risks are expected on the way to regulatory approval of the finished formulations on the market. In contrast to the development of new chemical entities (NCE), the development of these formulations are based on active and excipient agents that have already been approved.
