Tackling bioavailability challenges

Are you looking for an expert bioavailability partner for your drug development project?

Is your molecule bioavailability-challenged and in need of specialist expertise?

Is your drug product a non-traditional, complex dosage form?

Are you looking to try out a range of formulation techniques for your molecule?

Discover an experienced and responsive partner that is willing to take on the complex bioavailability projects that others won't.

Poor water solubility and low bioavailability are two of the most common challenges in drug product development today. In fact, poorly soluble compounds represent 40% of the top 200 oral drugs marketed in the US, 33% of drugs listed in the US Pharmacopeia, 75% of compounds under development and 90% of new chemical entities1, which can potentially lead to poor bioavailability. 

With this in mind, it is important to choose a partner that has the knowledge and expertise to address these challenges from a number of different angles.  Lubrizol Life Science Health (LLS Health) is a leader in drug product formulation and development, having supported hundreds of small and large molecule development programs.
