Apisolex™ Polymer is the first solubility-enhancing excipient to be launched specifically for parenteral use in over 20 years. Comprised of building blocks naturally occurring in the body, Apisolex™ is a poly(amino acid)--based excipient that provides drug formulators with the necessary tools and methods to enhance the solubility of hydrophobic APIs by up to 50,000-fold.
Approximately 60% of new chemical entities (NCEs) under development, and more than 40% of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) in reformulation are poorly water-soluble with each requiring tailored solutions. With several solubilizing excipients on the market, it is impossible to find a one-size-fits-all solution. Filling a crucial gap in the market, Apisolex™ Polymer enables novel brick-dust and grease ball APIs to be formulated, as well as providing existing APIs with the option to be repurposed or reformulated via the FDA’s 505(b)(2) regulatory pathway.
“By drawing on our 40+ year legacy, Lubrizol Life Science Health has developed a non-immunogenic, biocompatible, and biodegradable alternative to PEG-based excipients. Apisolex™ Polymer offers oncology, CNS, and high-value orphan drug formulators the tools necessary to unlock the potential of previously hard-to-formulate APIs, providing patients with access to life-changing therapeutics that otherwise may not have made it to market.” - Gaurab Sengupta, Senior Global Business Director, Pharmaceuticals & Nutraceuticals, Lubrizol Life Science Health.

New VCMI Guidance Opens Door for Corporate Carbon Credit Claims28.11.2023 11:36:00 CET | Press release
The Voluntary Carbon Markets Integrity Initiative (VCMI) has today released additional guidance for its Claims Code of Practice (Claims Code), enabling companies to make claims about their use of high-quality carbon credits. This guidance includes a Monitoring, Reporting and Assurance (MRA) Framework, a brand and associated mark for making ‘Carbon Integrity' Claims, and a beta version of an additional claim. Using the MRA framework and the ‘Carbon Integrity’ Claims branding, companies can now make Silver, Gold or Platinum Claims as outlined in the original Claims Code of Practice released in June. This means these companies can now make claims using high-quality carbon credits, directing finance to initiatives that mitigate climate change, and demonstrating that they are going above and beyond science-aligned emissions cuts. VCMI has also launched the beta version of a new claim – called the ‘Scope 3 Flexibility’ Claim - as a practical step to accelerate corporate climate action. Once
