Check out the February 6, 2014 article “Sound Waves Shake Pharmaceuticals into Cocrystals” in C&EN!
“Over the past decade, pharmaceutical companies have realized that cocrystallization could offer a way to make better medicines, says Mike Zaworotko of the University of Limerick, in Ireland. “This paper addresses one of the major hurdles of how to make cocrystals on a larger scale,” he says. Further research will be needed to confirm that the process will scale up and to determine if this technique will apply to a range of compounds, he adds.
Nalas has filed a provisional patent for the cocrystallization process. It is seeking a commercial partner to help carry out additional studies needed to scale up the method.”
Congratulations to the Dr. David J. am Ende, Dr. Stephen Anderson, and Nalas CEO Jerry Salan!
