First batch of patches will be used for clinical studies of ibuprofen patches
Medherant, a University of Warwick (UK) spin-out company developing a novel transdermal drug delivery patch technology, has appointed Laboratoires Plasto Sante, a French independent drug delivery company, to manufacture its first drug delivery patches.
The first batch of patches, based on Medherant’s proprietary TEPI Patch technology, will be used for clinical studies of the company’s ibuprofen patches. The new studies, designed to test safety and efficacy, are planned to start in the autumn of 2017.
Nigel Davis, CEO of Medherant, said: “We’re delighted to have Laboratoires Plasto Sante as our contract manufacturer at this exciting time in our company’s growth.”
“Combining our TEPI Patch technology with Laboratoires Plasto Sante’s product manufacturing expertise will enable us to start clinical trials and facilitate rapid growth of our library of patch-delivered drugs.”
Bruno Loiseau, Managing Director of Laboratoires Plasto Sante, said: “We are expanding our patch production capacity and will support Medherant with our expertise in transdermal delivery systems as they bring TEPI Patch ibuprofen to market and begin clinical studies with other products.”
