SOMERSET, NJ, July 11, 2012 — Michael J. Valazza R.Ph., Vice President, Global Modified Release Technologies, Catalent Pharma Solutions, will be presenting on “Recent Advances in Oral Granules and Fixed Dose Tablet technologies, OptiMeltTM Solubility Enhancement Solutions, and Oral Disintegrating Tablet applications,” on Sunday, July 15th from 10:15AM -11:15AM as part of a releasing technology workshop (room 202) at the 39th annual Controlled Release Society Conference. This educational workshop will focus on new advancements in modified controlled release technologies, including novel OSDrC® OptiDoseTM optimized dose delivery technology, solubility enhancement with OptiMeltTM hot melt extrusion, and case studies of Zydis® fast-dissolve applications.

Optimized Products and Better Treatments:

OSDrC® OptiDoseTM optimized dose delivery technology offers the broadest range of controlled release, combination (tablet-within-a-tablet) products, and loosely compressed beads encased in tablets to optimize dosing, therapeutic, and plasma release profiles to meet patient needs in a high quality, one step manufacturing process.

OptiMeltTM hot melt extrusion enhances solubility of BCS Class 2/4 poorly soluble compounds to bring more products and better treatments to market.

Zydis® fast-dissolve tablets are the innovator brand in orally disintegrating tablets and offers the potential for increasing the range of prescription and consumer drug products that can be formulated as a lyophilized fast-dissolve dosage form. This proprietary technology has been applied to launch an ODT vaccine that was previously administered through subcutaneous injection. Buccal absorption, taste-masking, and patient convenience make Zydis® fast-dissolve tablets ideal for numerous therapeutic areas.
