MonoSol Rx Completes Thin Film Escitalopram Oxalate Pilot Product Development
Date:8/4/2008

WARREN, N.J., Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- MonoSol Rx, a specialty pharmaceutical company leveraging its proprietary drug delivery technology to develop thin film pharmaceutical products, today announced the completion of pilot product development for its thin film formulation of escitalopram oxalate, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor.

A.

Our proprietary PharmFilm(R) technology delivers thin-film drug products designed to offer significant patient benefits over other currently marketed prescription drug products and will help ensure that patients receive the appropriate dose in all treatment settings.
