Overview of Ensysce Biosciences offerings
TAAP (Targeted Abuse Affective Platform): This technology deters abuse by making it difficult to crush, chew, snort, or inject medications.
MPAR (Multi-Pill Abuse Resistant): This technology adds a feature that limits the amount of medication released if someone takes too much at once, potentially reducing the risk of overdose.
Route Scouting and Pre-Formulation: Ensysce can assist with selecting the most suitable method of delivering the drug (oral, topical, etc.) They can also perform initial studies on the stability and formulation of the medication.
Dosage Form Development: Here, Ensysce would help design a formulation that incorporates their TAAP or MPAR technology to make the medication tamper-resistant or include overdose prevention features.
Small-Scale GMP Manufacturing: Ensysce has the capability to produce small batches of a drug following Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) which ensures quality and safety standards. This can be useful for clinical trials.
Drug Substance Characterization: Ensysce can analyze the drug substance to ensure it meets the desired specifications for purity, potency, and other characteristics.
