Drug companies and drug delivery device manufacturers are discovering the potential for the medical-grade silicones from the Avantor® NuSil™ brand to create revolutionary devices that get crucial medications to patients with immediate adherence and sustained delivery.
It’s been estimated that 50% of all patients don’t take their medicines as prescribed. Silicone for drug delivery devices can help address this healthcare challenge: silicone’s flexibility at the molecular level allows controlled drug loading and release. NuSil’s silicones can be used in multiple drug delivery applications, including patches, creams and molded devices such as intravaginal rings (IVR).
NuSil silicone scientists are pioneering new ways to transform silicone to meet the adherence goals of our pharmaceutic and biologic partners. With our integrated development solution, we’ve accelerated the entire combination of drug device creation process from start to finish.
