The American Chemical Society's "Chemical and Engineering News" to Feature Founder of Integral Biosystems, LLC
Published: Apr 02, 2013
Integral BioSystems’ niche is in nano-engineered drug delivery systems aimed at providing solutions to long-held issues in drug products, especially in low drug absorption by target tissues due to cell impermeability and insolubility. In addition to assisting drug companies in developing their dosage forms, Integral scientists are also working on novel solutions to improve the bioavailability of Class II, III and IV compounds.
Under Dr. Barman’s leadership, Integral BioSystems has developed numerous dosage forms for ophthalmic, oral, sublingual, intranasal, IV and transdermal routes. Integral BioSystems has a translational approach to drug development, customizing delivery systems to achieve the biologically effective objectives of the therapy. Dosage forms are customized to achieve sustained release or targeted, tissue-focused delivery or fast-release/instant delivery, depending upon the desired product attributes.
Once the drug-containing formulations are tested in preclinical models, the Company develops an integrated CMC plan to systematically transition the project to scale up and product development. As part of product development, Integral BioSystems specializes in efficiently developing a dosage form to manufacture and test in Phase I/Phase II first-in-man trials for proof-of-concept. The Company has a network of manufacturers/analytical houses for pharmaceutics that can fast-track the manufacture and release of the sterile dosage form for first-in-man trials.
