MedPharm expands relationship with Novan on formulation science

New agreement allows MedPharm to react quickly to changes in requirements and makes full use of its comprehensive services for de-risking Novan’s product development.

MedPharm, a leader in topical and transdermal drug delivery, has expanded its relationship with biopharmaceutical company Novan.

MedPharm has previously supported Novan by testing the company’s unique formulations using its proprietary in vitro models to optimise Novan’s formulations and de-risk product development.

The newly expanded agreement between the companies will broaden the relationship to include development of formulations and selection of product candidates, cost-effective product target screening and the development of in vitro models focused on Novan’s nitric oxide product technology.

“MedPharm is delighted to be able to support Novan in advancing and broadening its product pipeline,” commented Eugene Ciolfi, MedPharm’s President & CEO. “Our new agreement allows us to react quickly to changes in requirements and makes full use of MedPharm’s comprehensive services for de-risking Novan’s product development”.

“Novan recognises MedPharm has in-depth experience in developing new topical products fit for commercialisation”, added Paula Brown Stafford, Novan’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “The team’s responsiveness, rigorous scientific approach and specialised knowledge makes MedPharm an ideal partner to help Novan achieve its objectives.”
