INNOVATIVE LAURIAD® MUCOADHESIVE DELIVERY SYSTEM

  OVERVIEW OF THE LAURIAD® TECHNOLOGY

Innovative and patented drug delivery system based on a mucoadhesive tablet developed to ensure targeted diffusion and increase patient compliance.

 

The tablet formulation is based on a novel natural biodegradable polymer derived from milk protein concentrate (MPC) in combination with hydrophilic matrix made of hypromellose, associated with active pharmaceutical ingredient (API).

 

When applied under a patient’s upper lip, the tablet slowly swells, adheres and dissolves within 12‐16 hours, allowing the slow release of the API.
