Versatile Drug Release Matrix

CONSTRUCT ATTRIBUTES:

  • Multiple configurations for implantable drug delivery
  • High drug loading capability
  • Minimal burst effect
  • Surface erodible drug elution possible
  • Linear release kinetics
  • Processed at lower temperatures for improved drug stability

DESCRIPTION:

Tepha is developing and formulating TephaFLEX® and TephELAST® materials into a number of treatment-specific constructs for local delivery as well as systemic release of small molecule drugs and biological therapeutics. These developments can allow for high drug-loading densities with linear release kinetics to provide for reliable therapeutic effects.

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS:

  • Depot formulations for systemic drug delivery
  • Site-specific local drug delivery implants
  • Drug-device combinations
