Patches to treat diseases
The Canadian company XPhyto Therapeutics Corp. announced this morning that its wholly owned German subsidiary, Vektor Pharma TF GmbH, has completed the formula for its novel transdermal delivery system for the neurological drug Rotigotine. Vektor is now proceeding with the process implementation for the production of Rotigotine patches for human clinical trials.
The active ingredient Rotigotine is a generic and off-patent drug and is used for the treatment of Parkinson's disease and restless legs syndrome in Europe and the United States. The global market for Rotigotine patches was worth approximately CAD 250 million to CAD 500 million in 2019.
Results expected in 2020
"We are extremely pleased with the TDS development results thus far. It appears that our goal of optimizing the dosage form efficiency, to reduce the amount of drug required in each patch, and improving overall patch adhesion to the patient's skin has been achieved," said Prof. Dr. Thomas Beckert, founder and managing director of Vektor.
Once process implementation is complete, clinical sample manufacturing and analytical work will commence in Vektor's EU GMP laboratory and manufacturing facility based in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Human pilot studies in Europe are scheduled for Q3 2020 with results expected in Q4 2020, according to today's announcement.
