Tara Dougal — 18 Jan 2021

If you’re looking for news, product information and market trends from leading pharma companies, the CPhI-Online.com Company Showcases are a great resource for buyers who want to stay up to date, browse product portfolios and find the right partner.

The Company Showcase profiles offer a library of free to access, downloadable content, including videos and webinars, reports, whitepapers and product brochures, from the Pharma suppliers and service providers you’d look to meet at our events.

Here is this month’s selection of the five most visited Company Showcases on the CPhI Online platform:

Aptar Pharma – Turning ideas into opportunities

Navigating product development for drug delivery solutions can be a challenging process. Innovating is a costly enterprise, with no guaranteed end result and significant pressure to ensure speed to market. For many organisations, relying on external expertise can help to speed up development timelines, reduce risk, fast track commercialisation and crucially, help you to differentiate from your competitors.

In the whitepaper ‘How Aptar Pharma’s expertise can transform your ideas into opportunities’, the drug delivery and packaging powerhouse outlines their service portfolio, and track record in assisting companies on their drug development journey. If you’re looking for a trusted partner, read this to get your bearings.

Recipharm - Tomorrow’s medicines with today’s drug substances

Drug repurposing has been a big topic in the past couple of years – thrown into the spotlight even more in the search for COVID-19 treatments as a quicker solution to developing NCEs.

Development timelines for NCEs are typically long, painful, costly and come with significant risk of failure. An interesting alternative for many organisations is to look instead at existing molecules and products in their armoury, to examine how these might be used for new applications, improved upon, or paired with a device for improved therapeutic effect or efficacy.

In the webinar ‘Tomorrow’s Medicines with Today’s Drug Substances’ on their Company Showcase page, Recipharm outline the opportunity of innovating with existing APIs. Such products offer shorter development timelines on products which can be highly profitable.

Corden Pharma – Injecting life into Drug-Device Products

On the subject of drug-device combination products, Corden Pharma have a fantastic webinar which offers useful updates on the regulatory landscape for drug-device products, the benefits these products offer to patients, and how partnering with a full-service CDMO can help with development and commercialisation.

This 70-minute webinar is a great resource for anyone looking to jump-start their development of pre-filled syringes and auto-injectors.

Croda – Overcoming formulation challenges with high-purity excipients

Improving and optimising drug formulation – particularly bioavailability, solubility and stability - is an ongoing challenge in Pharma, particularly as drug products evolve and increase in complexity.

Interestingly, the humble excipient can be a great asset in addressing formulation challenges and adding value to finished products, as the webinar ‘Newest Innovations in Pharmaceutical Excipients’ from Croda explains.

This video covers the high incidence of API instability, the benefits that high-purity excipients can offer as well as the latest market innovations, and highlights opportunities to collaborate with Croda to master your formulation challenges. Worth a watch!

Laboratoria Natury sp. z o.o – Innovation in supplements

Another of the most searched for companies on CPhI Online this month was Laboratoria Natury sp. z o.o, a leading CDMO for food supplements and functional beverages. Their Showcase offers information on probiotics and supplements which have been developed with the patient in mind.

With supplements, taste is a key factor in patient experience and adherence – even more so when formulating products for children. Both the LLP Probiotics and the Sugar Free Pectin Gummies offered by Laboratoria Natury have been developed to optimise the patient experience. These products are gluten free, sugar free, vegan and prioritise taste, while still delivering nutritional benefits.
