leon-nanodrugs partners with Instillo for GMP production of a MicroJet Reactor (MJR®) based formulation of a generic oncology supportive product
leon-nanodrugs GmbH and Instillo are pleased to announce the cooperation for the production of a generic oncology product using leon-nanodrugs’ proprietary nanotechnology platform –MicroJet Reactor (MJR®). The product will be manufactured at URSAPHARM Arzneimittel GmbH in Saarbrücken, Germany.
It is estimated that over 60% of pharmaceutical API’s are poorly soluble in water. leon’s MJR technology offers reformulation options that not only address this issue, but can also lead to a superior profile for the API by increasing bioavailability, reducing inter patient variability, improving onset of action, etc. The one-step, bottom up, continuous precipitation process approach of the MJR® technology is highly cost effective and easily scalable.
leon-nanodrugs focuses on developing innovative drug formulations enabled by it’s proprietary nanotechnology platform – MicroJet Reactor (MJR®). leon works with it’s Pharma customers through contract development agreements, as well as co-development partnerships. Leon has also initiated work on its own internal development projects, concentrating on nanotechnology-based reformulations that offer enhanced clinical and safety benefits.
Dr. Theron E. Odlaug, CEO of leon-nanodrugs GmbH and the US subsidiary explains: “The vision of leon- nanodrugs is to be recognized as a global leader in nanotechnology formulated pharmaceuticals through contract services and co-development partnerships. Through the unique attributes of our MicroJet Reactor Technology, our goal is to generate added value to both established molecules and novel NCEs. We will be seeking a commercial partner for the product once we have shown bioequivalence.”
Dr. Bernd Baumstümmler, CEO of Instillo states: “Instillo Group bring experts from different areas together for the ultimate support for our customers in a range of pharmaceutical services from development through registration to commercialization by the companies MJR PharmJet GmbH and Quasaar GmbH. Quasaar takes over the GMP relevant aspects of drug and formulation development and brings the products forward in the path of commercialization.”
