Dry-powder inhalation (DPI) is a major drug delivery technology for the treatment of respiratory diseases and increasingly for systemic drug delivery. Providing a uniform dose in a portable, easy-to-use system, capsule-based DPI is a simple and cost-effective way to deliver medication via the pulmonary route.
Within dry-powder inhalation application fields, Lonza offers the Capsugel® Zephyr™ Dry-Powder Inhalation portfolio: high-quality capsule solutions based on different polymers, tailored to enable consistent and optimal release performance. Polymer science and engineering have opened a new era of functional development, which offers the potential for selecting the right capsule for different APIs and different inhalation devices associated with a wider range of services.
Join us for a webinar on November 12th at 11 AM EST to learn more about the Capsugel® Zephyr™ Dry-Powder Inhalation capsule portfolio.
