    Sustained drug delivery moving toward clinical use

    Drug makers who want uniform tablets use molds; so do electronics manufacturers. Why not use miniature molds to create micro-size injectable rods that contain nano-sized drug particles?

    “Our technology is gentle enough that we can formulate very sensitive substances, such as DNA, monoclonal antibodies, even cyclosporine, to create clinically useful products,” said Chief Scientific Officer Benjamin Yerxa, PhD. “We can very precisely create microgram doses with the precise size, shape, and physical characteristics needed to ensure optimal therapeutic activity.”

    Trials of extended release prostaglandin in canines show an almost immediate response and a sustained 30% reduction in IOP over more than 120 days. Clinical trials are planned for later this year.
