A REASON TO SMILE
Capsamedix develops devices for long-term oral drug delivery. Our unique approach has the capacity for multi-drug delivery with easily scalable production, based on biodegradable and biocompatible polymer technology. Capsamedix has a strong and talented team of experts on polymer chemistry, pharmaceutical sciences, and material sciences, necessary to make our technology available to the end-user.
Capsamedix platform technology is based on a device for local long-term steady-state oral delivery of compounds (drugs, active pharmaceutical ingredients, or any other).
Our solution is a tooth-attachable small polymeric-based drug delivery device, based on biodegradable and biocompatible polymers. The device can be attached in a "do-it-yourself" manner, with a precisely tuned drug release rate.
