Particle Sciences Partners with Encube Ethicals to Develop Novel Vaginal Rings
CLEVELAND, Ohio, Jan 31, 2019 - (ACN Newswire) - The Lubrizol Corporation announces its contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO), Particle Sciences, a Lubrizol LifeSciences company, is partnering with leading Indian contract manufacturing organization (CMO), Encube Ethicals.
Under the partnership, the two companies will develop innovative intravaginal rings with the intent to out-license to biopharmaceutical marketing partners. The partnership will focus on rings for the administration of existing approved drugs, improving drug effectiveness and patient compliance. The use of drug-eluting devices to provide sustained-release dosage forms has seen continued growth due to the ability to provide constant, localized, site-specific drug delivery. The market continues to be of interest as these devices can improve patient compliance, one of the greatest challenges in healthcare today.
Both parties will leverage each other's drug development and manufacturing strengths. Particle Sciences brings its proven track record and extensive expertise in the development and manufacturing of intravaginal ring devices and complex formulations to the partnership. Encube Ethicals will offer its strong capabilities in developing complex topical and transdermal delivery systems, with two decades of experience in commercial manufacturing of topical products for a variety of markets, including women's health for multiple countries.
The project is Particle Sciences' latest in the complex generics space using the 505(b)(2) US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulatory pathway to develop new drugs that better meet the requirements of patients and physicians. Dr. Barbara Morgan, general manager of Particle Sciences states: "Our collaboration with Encube Ethicals is an important step in our work on complex pharmaceuticals and particularly toward our efforts to accelerate improved therapeutics through the use of the 505(b)(2) pathway."
Mr. Mehul Shah, founder and managing director of Encube Ethicals comments: "We are deeply invested in finding innovative ways to deliver drugs that make the patient's experience significantly better and safer. We hope to leverage Encube's experience in topical products development and manufacturing to bring impactful breakthrough innovations to the market. We are delighted to partner with Particle Sciences' extremely talented team and excited to see the possibilities the effort creates."
