Bio-Spectrum India: ZIM Laboratories develops oral soluble strips

May 25, 2018 Spread the awareness:
Nagpur-based ZIM Laboratories that develops and manufactures innovative and differentiated pharmaceutical products, has now developed affordable orally disintegrating strips (ODS) formulations up to 100 milligram that critically ill and bed-ridden patients can consume instead of swallowing tablets and taking painful injections.

These films, based on a patented oral thin film technology, adhere to the tongue mucosa and disintegrate almost instantaneously, when placed on the tongue. 
Market opportunity for the drug is huge in the country, as about Rs. 35,000 crore worth of drugs are delivered every year in oral solid dosage forms.
