Capsugel Xcelodose® System Accelerating Drug Development with Precision Dosing Techniques

Pharmaceutical drug development takes too long and is too expensive. With a patent life of 20 years, and the gestation period for an NCE from research through to launch being of the order of 10-12 years (providing it survives the huge rate of attrition), the actual time to recoup the R&D investment is often only six to eight years.

Any reduction in the time taken to complete development will be beneficial, both in terms of additional revenue and also competitive position.
