Certain Pharmaceutical Dosage Forms Can Be "Effectively" Injection Molded in a Single Step
Some 40 percent of all active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) currently in the development pipelines of the pharmaceutical industry are sparingly soluble in water. At the same time the cost of medicines is soaring. Consequently, in order that a wide demographic may continue to have guaranteed access to medicines, two things must happen: the industry needs to develop new, economic manufacturing processes and, through new dosage forms, it must ensure APIs which are sparingly soluble in water can be released and absorbed in the human body. Injection molding affords a new way of accomplishing this.Beitrag auf Deutsch lesen
