MedinCell to Explore Controlled-Release Drug Delivery Partnerships at the World Animal Health Congress

SAN DIEGO and MONTPELLIER, France, Dec. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MedinCell, a leading developer of low-cost, controlled-release drug delivery technology, will be exploring partnerships for key companion and food animal markets with industry leaders at the Terrapinn World Animal Health Congress in Kansas City (December 6-8, 2011).

"MedinCell's biodegradable polymer technology offers exceptional control over the duration of drug release, thereby making small molecules—and even peptides—cost effective for the companion and food animal markets," said Dr. Alexandre Melin, Director of Animal Health for MedinCell. "Our platform's inherent flexibility enables us to design single-injection products that release drug molecules systemically over just a few days, or across multiple-months. With some APIs, we can achieve therapeutic plasma levels throughout an entire year," Dr. Melin ( continued.

Dr. Anh Nguyen, MedinCell Founder and CEO, explained, "MedinCell has experience formulating molecules for chemocastration, diabetes, pain control and parasitology. Our MedinGel™ technology brings a strong environmental benefit to animal health brands by reducing the required drug cargo, and therefore the amount of API cleared by the animals. This can also lead to a substantial reduction in product cost for animal health companies."

"MedinCell recognizes that the demand for protein production is increasing, and requires novel approaches to support the growing global population," commented Dr. Melin, who welcomes meeting requests at the World Animal Health Congress to discuss controlled-release strategies. "We look forward to designing novel products that improve product efficiency and animal treatment for the food animal industry," concluded Dr. Melin.

About MedinCell

MedinCell's patent-pending drug delivery technology, MedinGel, entraps drug molecules in a polymer matrix after injected. By limiting the initial drug burst, MedinCell can design formulations that extend release duration. With MedinGel, substantially less API cargo is required than for products designed for oral administration, which is a pivotal consideration for cost-sensitive markets such as animal health. MedinCell SA is headquartered in Montpellier, France, and recently launched formulation and R&D activities at its US subsidiary, MedinCell Corporation, in San Diego, California. Contact information for both facilities is available at
