Organisation: DSTNWU Preclinical Drug Development Platform
Name of Exhibition: Novel dosage forms in Africa
The DST/NWU Preclinical Drug Development Platform, in conjunction with the dti Pheroid Cluster Incubator, can be regarded as drivers of health innovation and exploratory pharmaceutical and bio-agricultural manufacturing in South Africa. The exhibition will illustrate the use of Pheroid technology as platform delivery technology. Pheroid is a home-grown system capable of the delivery of multiple molecules in the human health, supplement and cosmetic sector. It is also used as bio-transporter of agricultural compounds to enhance harvest yield. In both the human and agricultural sector, products have reached the market; two Pheroid-based products manufactured locally are exported to three continents.
