TAPs. The safe and easy way to multi-particulate dosage forms
Multi-particulate dosage forms have striking advantages compared to monolithic dosage forms, such as:
- low variability of gastric emptying
- low dependency on nutrition state
- low risk of localized high drug concentrations in the GI
- reduced risk of sudden dose dumping
- lower intra- and inter-individual variability
- high control on time and place of drug delivery
This means firstly higher safety and secondly better compliance for your patients, and added-value for your products.
TAP is a great offering for our clients that have a drug that shows pH dependent solubility and requires an acidic environment to improve solubility, release, and absorption. The TAP pellets can do a great job of creating the acidic microenvironment required to make their drug successful.
APIs with poor solubility in alkalic media, like in the intestine, sometimes need a kick with a small acidic environment and we are happy to support our customers with TAP® as excipient for this dilemma.
Our project partners love to work with TAPs, as they accelerate the dissolution rate of weakly basic drugs creating the best in-situ micro-environment conditions. You get TAPs in diverse sizes – perfect for multi-particulate formulations!
