Movement on the market reflected at CPhI Worldwide 2018

Companies new to CPhI to showcase an exciting range of products and services ranging from electroceuticals to refrigerant alternatives.

Each year, CPhI Worldwide affords the pharmaceutical industry the opportunity to come together to share and learn. Each year, new exhibitors use the event as a platform to showcase their products and services, which frequently mirror trends in customer demand and regulatory requirements.

Making the intolerable, tolerable

Anemia is one of the most widespread diseases in the world and more than 50% of the cases are due to iron deficiency. To recover iron deficiency, however, oral iron products are generally problematic for many patients who are unlikely to tolerate iron and, therefore, are forced to drop out the treatment or to resort to complicated, intravenous administration.

Pharmanutra’s SiderAL products, however, are based on patented Sucrosomial Iron and offer higher tolerability and bioavailability compared with traditional iron-based products. Thanks to its unique delivery system, SiderAL is considered by many as the most effective and innovative oral iron supplement on the market.

The SiderAL range of products includes several formulations, developed to comply with the different nutritional requirements for children, men and women, who need to boost their iron status, reduce fatigue and improve their quality of life.

Migraine is an extraordinarily prevalent neurological disease and the third most prevalent illness in the world. For many migraine suffers, current antimigraine drugs are not tolerated or contraindicated.

To fulfil the unmet needs of migraine medications, Cefaly Technology offers an evidence-based e-TNS (external Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation) device indicated to treat and prevent migraine. The device’s efficacy/safety profile is excellent, exceeding many antimigraine medication.

The Cefaly — a battery-powered device applied on the forehead using a self-adhesive electrode positioned bilaterally over the upper branches of the trigeminal nerve — generates precise electrical impulses allowing to stimulate the trigeminal nerve.

Outsourcing going green

The destructive effect of chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants on the ozone layer is well known. Concern, however, is not limited to CO2 but includes all fluorinated refrigerants and their global warming potential (GWP).

Many gases generated as the result of human activity are more harmful than CO2. Therefore, a gas’s GWP must also be considered as well as the gas quantity released into the atmosphere. European and national regulations controlling the emission of these gases greatly affect industries requiring freeze drying, as the fluorinated refrigerants used in their thermal systems have a high GWP.

As experts in freeze-drying equipment and associated regulatory requirements, CoolVacuum designs and manufactures freeze dryers for numerous sectors. The company offers customers customized solutions, ranging from developing projects for new processes to improving existing one.

CDMOs are becoming more diverse and innovative in their product and service offerings. In response to current trends in and customer demand for products using ‘natural’ and ‘ethical’ ingredients, Farmaceutici Procemsa has launched the first products developed following a new ‘Green & Tech’ philosophy, which combines the ancient phytotherapeutic tradition with technological innovation.

At this year’s CPhI, the company will be offering for the first time an original proposal in the dermocosmetic sector - an innovative gel cream to treat skin imperfections associated with cellulite. The product, which provides a thermogenic action, contains a complex of an Alfalfa (Medicago sativa) extract titrated in a defined tripeptide combined with melatonin.

Rubber and plastic

Sanok RC is a dynamically developing manufacturer of rubber stoppers for use in pharmacy and veterinary medicine. The excellent quality of rubber compounds can be used in a wide range of applications for different types of preparations — antibiotics, infusion fluids, insulin, blood and blood products, and lyophilization — and are made to GMP white zone standards together with a high level of molecular and microbiological purity.

With an openness to specific customer requirement, the company can execute new projects; that is, the preparation of recipes and the implementation of new structural solutions.

Building on the success of having established long-term co-operative relationships with 50% of the top-100 pharmaceutical manufacturers of mist spray medicines in China, Xinjitai (XJT) has decided the time is right to move beyond its domestic market and showcase its products at CPhI Worldwide.

The company focusses on manufacturing plastic metered mist sprayers (pumps), such as nasal sprayers, throat or oral sprayers, and topical sprayers. Unlike many other suppliers, all XJT sprayers do not contain polyoxymethylene (POM) or rubber; instead, the company uses polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE).
