Laurène Haurie / GALA®, a technology platform on advanced galenic


Published on

Presentation given by Laurène Haurie from Plateforme Gala in the framework of the Emergence Forum Barcelona

Biocat organized the Barcelona Emergence Forum (April 10-11th, 2014, Congress Palace, Montjuïc) supported by the TRANSBIO SUDOE, a translational cooperation project dedicated to innovation in life sciences in South-West Europe. The Barcelona Emergence Forum contributed to bringing together Academics, Companies, Investment Entities, Technology Platforms and Technology Transfer Offices from Spain, France and Portugal to set up collaborative projects on Human Health & Agro-food Innovation.

Laurène Haurie / GALA®, a technology platform on advanced galenic

  1. 1. a technological platform dedicated to Advanced Galenic
  2. 2. Why GALA®? The pharmaceutical development Pharmaceu)cal  dosage   form  example   Auxiliary  substances   Ac)v   drug   +  
  3. 3. Pharmaceutical Development Process Drug  Discovery   Preformula2on  Research   Analy2cal  Development   Process  Research   Formula2on  Development   Bioavailability   Phisyco-­‐chemical     Characteriza2on   Pharmaceu2cal  form    concep2on   =   +   API   EXCIPIENTS  
  4. 4. Pharmaceutical dosage forms ~ 40% of pharmaceutical products never reach the clinical level due to a bad absorption by the human body Increasing difficulty since last 15 years REASONS  FOR  DRUG  FAILURE  
  5. 5. Why GALA®? Advanced Galenic is seen as a market of major importance in the field of drug delivery Engineered particle for drug delivery The galenic improvement of the existing products also constitutes one possibility to avoid the high cost of the development of new molecular entities.
