http://www.curtin.edu.au/research/ Delivering drugs efficiently and effectively is a significant and ongoing problem in the pharmaceutical industry. Many promising new drugs never become available as medicines because of delivery issues.
Winner of the 2012 Curtin Commercial Innovation Awards, Chiragkumar Desai has developed and refined a process for creating miniemulsions that have multiple advantages over current drug delivery systems.
These include better absorption and bioavailability of the drug, significantly longer shelf-life and applicability to many delivery systems from injection and dermal to oral.
And because they contain less surfactant, the new process minimises the risk of side-effects.
