First successful year on the market for Marinomed’s Solv4U technology partnerships

  • Several feasibility studies completed; follow-on formulation and optimization stages due to start
  • Compounds from more than ten substance classes successfully solubilized
  • Marinomed will be attending BioEurope in Leipzig, Germany from 24-24 October 2022 and CPHI in Frankfurt, Germany from 01-03 November 2022

Korneuburg, Austria, 20 October 2022 – Marinomed Biotech AG (VSE:MARI), an Austrian science-based biotech company with globally marketed therapeutics, today provided an update on the performance of Solv4U, a business area newly launched a year ago. Solv4U offers Marinosolv technology partnerships to clients, supporting them with formulation development to increase both solubility and bioavailability of hydrophobic small molecules and peptides in all stages of drug discovery and development. Partnerships typically start with a feasibility study, moving on to formulation development and optimization.

Within the first year after launching Solv4U, Marinomed performed several feasibility studies with first projects now entering the formulation development phase. So far, compounds from more than ten substance classes have already been successfully solubilized using the Marinosolv technology including corticosteroids and other immunosuppressive drugs, phytochemicals, and substances intended for use in infectiology, oncology, and central nervous system disorders.

“We are very pleased that within only one year after launching Solv4U, we could further validate the exceptional potential of our Marinosolv technology by successfully solubilizing substances from a wide variety of chemical classes. The high success rate of our approach combined with the excellent safety and tolerability profile make Solv4U a respectable player in formulation development. We are looking forward to meeting future Solv4U partners at the upcoming CPHI conference,” said Dr. Andreas Grassauer, CEO of Marinomed.

Solv4U offers clients access to Marinomed’s proprietary Marinosolv technology that is patented in major pharmaceutical markets worldwide. The Marinosolv formulation based on saponins is individually customized for each compound to substantially improve solubility. It is suitable for a wide range of APIs. With its clinically validated Marinosolv lead product candidates, Tacrosolv and Budesolv, Marinomed has been able to demonstrate several key advantages: increasing the solubility results in better permeation and bioavailability, more efficient drug delivery and a significantly faster onset of action. Marinosolv also enables a significant reduction of the administered dose and thus a reduced environmental footprint. Partners also benefit from an economic advantage: drugs based on Marinosolv are eligible for patent protection even if the active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) themselves are no longer protectable.
