Fuisz Pharma LLC Develops a New Generation of Oral Solid Dosage Form Shapes That Facilitate Swallowing and Esophageal Transit

"Our intention with this effort was to take existing tablet granulations and approach the question of form – as it relates to swallowability – from first principles.  The results were quite astonishing in that we demonstrated the ability to make enormous improvements in the swallowability of conventionally manufactured dosage forms.  Literally, we are able to take the existing granulation and stamp out a dramatically better performing product.  This advance also applies to capsules.  We are pursuing new dosage form classification for these next generation shapes in order to properly recognize their therapeutic value and to maximize the life cycle management benefit to our partners."

Richard C.
