Patient and rehabilitation efficacy needs
Today more than ever, the pharmaceutical industry is facing rapid and continuous change. There's a good reason for all of this, and that's to find solutions that meet real consumer needs. There is no doubt that patient engagement is a key consumer need that needs attention. Poor taste and odor, as well as poor visual recognition of the correct medication, are often barriers that consumers must overcome when trying to adhere to medications as prescribed.

There are many ways to improvepatient engagement


optimizing new forms of drug delivery to better fit the patient's lifestyle or overcomeswallowing difficulties; better masking of off-flavors from APls (activepharmaceutical ingredients); better visual recognition of the correct medication.etc. Changing the mode of release is another major trend in the pharmaceuticalindustry. Releasing APls at specific target locations in the body, delaying the releaseafter dosing or extending the release time can make great strides in improvingefficacy.


How can we help you capitalize on this trend?

Gelatin has a wide range of properties that make it an efficient pharmaceuticalexcipient. While efforts have been made to find suitable alternatives, gelatine'sunique technical and biopharmaceutical properties have ensured its importancein the pharmaceutical industry and can be used in capsules, tablets andmany other dosage forms, and its benefits include the ability to protect the activepharmaceutical ingredient (API),its tastelessness and odorlessness, itsextremely high bioavailability and its potential for modified release.

In addition to its many uses as an excipient, our gelatine is also used in medicalapplications, including wound care and bone plugs. The versatility of gelatin forpharmaceutical and even (bio)medical applications is unmatched by other naturalor synthetic polymers.
