OXNARD, Calif., July 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CURE Pharmaceutical (CURR), an innovative drug delivery and development company, today announced the allowance of U.S. Application No. 13/890,875. The new patent builds on one of CURE’s key technology differentiators – loading higher amounts of drug active on an oral thin film (OTF) using its proprietary drug delivery system, CUREfilm™.
“The challenge with oral soluble film technology is creating a fast-dissolving and pleasant-tasting film that packs a high dose of medication – 50mg or higher per unit,” said Rob Davidson, CEO of CURE Pharmaceutical. “Now, we can enable oral film compositions containing more than 30% of active ingredient, which can achieve flavor masking, protection from degradation, and increased transmucosal absorption.”
The new patent covers methods of preparing edible thin films that can deliver high doses of active ingredients that are encapsulated using lipids to form micelles or liposomes. This enables CURE to differentiate its OTF product for specific drug opportunities such as cannabidiol and sildenafil oral soluble films.
