Indications: how we choose

Auritec Pharmaceuticals looks for diseases or indications that have good drugs on the market, however the drugs have problems with their delivery. We are interested in safe and effective drugs that are nearing patent expiration and could benefit from an alternate delivery route.

Sometimes treatment of the disease would benefit from local delivery, such as diseases in the eye.  Other times, we look for effective drugs that show poor patient compliance and adherence rates and evaluate its bioavailability through intravaginal rings through in vitro and in vivo testing. Other times the drug in question has poor bioavailablility, which could be improved by an injectable formulation. 

We also look at indications where the patients cannot always be depended on to take their medication reliably, like children and older population. These patients would benefit from sustained release formulations that they do not have to take as often.
