OnDosis and Recipharm partner to advance a novel treatment regimen for ADHD

The new treatment for the management of ADHD will be developed by Recipharm’s Centre of Excellence in Oral Solids and will leverage OnDosis’ proprietary technology, which integrates oral drugs in form of micro units and individualised dosing, in a handheld device. The advantages are simplified titration, more accurate dosing and the ability to track dosing and treatment results.

Bernard Pluta, President, Development Services, commented: “The global ADHD market amounts to just over 10 billion USD and there is strong demand for new solutions to help better manage this condition that affects a broad patient population. We are very proud to be able to work with OnDosis on such an important project and we believe that our excellent capabilities in drug formulation using coated pellets in Pessac, France, will be very valuable assets throughout the partnership.”

“ADHD is a disease area with a significant unmet medical need. It has been confirmed in dialogue with patients and healthcare professionals that ADHD is an area which can gain significant benefits from the new treatment regimen made possible by OnDosis technology. The decision to commence development of a formulation, which will be integrated with OnDosis technology, marks an important milestone for our company and we’re delighted to be working with Recipharm on this critical development work” said Martin Olovsson, CEO of OnDosis.
