Medherant is developing a pipeline of products for pain and neurology indications, based on our next-generation TEPI-Patch® transdermal drug technology. Our first product – Ibuprofen TEPI Patch – entered the clinic in 2018.
Key advantages of the TEPI Patch® technology over current technologies are the high payload and very efficient release of drug. This enables lower potency drugs to be formulated as a patch and provides the opportunity to increase the dose of drugs already administered via a patch whilst also minimising the residual drug after use.
The TEPI Patch® also provides a better experience for the user as it does not leave a residue around the patch – referred to as ‘cold flow’ – and has excellent adhesion whilst still being easy and painless to remove. No organic solvents are involved in this drug-in-adhesive system.
As well as developing our own products, Medherant offers pharma companies rapid feasibility studies using our proprietary high throughput permeation study system to develop transdermal formulations of their drugs of interest.
