Encapsulation of pharmaceutical proteins in starch microparticles project

Magle Chemoswed joins collaboration with Malmö University on exciting new project.
The project will focus on the use of the Company technology platform as a novel delivery system in conjunction with proteins. Protein-based therapeutics are becoming increasingly popular in medicine. Compared to low molecular drugs, they are more specific, cause fewer side effects and are environmentally friendly. To increase stability of pharmaceutical proteins, they are often formulated is solid state, where due to low water contents many degradation processes slow down. In this project we will use coated amorphous cross-linked starch microparticles as drug delivery vehicles for therapeutic proteins.
