The Company is a world leader in polylactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA)-based injectable, sustained-release technology. It has been used for one of our best-selling product Decapeptyl®, a novel injectable controlled-release formulation of triptorelin – a gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist analogue. This mode of administration developed by Debiopharm Research & Manufacturing relies on the active substance being “encapsulated” in a PLGA polymer to allow gradual dissolution and distribution of the substance in the patient’s body.
The Company has succeeded in producing
- 3-month and
- 6-month sustained-release (SR) formulations.
It is also focusing on nanoparticular drug delivery systems.
