Effective oral delivery of small molecule therapies is often hindered by poor water solubility and absorption. The LiDES technology addresses this challenge by combining a lipid-based formulation with a unique eutectic system. This approach significantly enhances the bioavailability of drugs with high Log P values and melting points below 200°C, overcoming a key obstacle in oral pharmaceutical development.

 

 

The LiDES platform creates a lipophilic eutectic solvent capable of incorporating up to 30% drug load, easily encapsulated in standard gelatin capsules. In humans, this formulation prevents drug precipitation and enhances drug absorption. Demonstrated in a case study with Glibenclamide, a notoriously insoluble drug, LiDES significantly raised bioavailability — 26-fold compared to crystalline API and by more than 2,75-fold against an amorphous solid dispersion.

 

The LiDES platform extends its applicability to formulate Proteolysis Targeting Chimeras (PROTACs). Learn more about PROTAC formulation development here.
