Emplicure and OnDosis form partnership to develop better pain treatments
Emplicure and OnDosis will jointly evaluate development targets for oral delivery of active ingredients, based on their respective core competencies in formulation and dosing.
The collaboration between Emplicure, a company that combines proprietary bioceramic technology with tried and tested substances to develop tamper resistant formulations, and OnDosis, a Swedish life science company developing a new tamper resistent and tamper evident drug/device technology platform, will focus on enabling development of innovative treatments for chronic pain.
OnDosis has developed a handheld device that integrates medicine with intelligent dosing and digital capabilities. Emplicure has formulated a new product for pain relief, where the opioid buprenorphine is incorporated into the cavities of its proprietary bioceramics for controlled release.
"We are excited to have a partner to enhance our treatment of chronic pain," says Håkan Engqvist, CEO of Emplicure. "OnDosis shares our vision of putting patients in control by ensuring that they safely receive exactly the amount of medicine they need to live better lives."
"We are thrilled about the opportunity opened up by the collaboration with Emplicure," says Martin Olovsson, CEO of OnDosis. "The combination of OnDosis' and Emplicure's technologies forms a very strong logic and this partnership supports our mission to revolutionize how patients take their medicines."
Pain is a major health issue globally and, in the US, as many as 20% of the population are estimated to suffer from chronic pain and to need long-term pain relief. Widespread moderate to severe pain is a problem that is associated with significant costs for society and individual patients.
With their combined technologies, the companies see significant opportunities to pursue development of therapies that will address considerable unmet needs in the area of pain.
