CARRIER-FREE POWDER FORMULATION

Commonly, carrier particles of 60-100 µm are needed for an accurate dosing of drug containing fine particles. The content of the carrier material could be as high as 99 % of the overall powder composition. To avoid the use of large quantities of additional materials that may cause side effects to the patient, carrier-free formulations are advantageous. Particles within a respirable size range of 1-3 micrometers are, however, difficult to handle due to strong adhesive forces between adjacent surfaces.

Teicos Pharma has overcome this problem by coating API particles that provide excellent handling, dosing and delivery properties without the need for any carrier particles.
