NanOlogy, a clinical-stage oncology company, has enrolled its first patient in a clinical trial of NanoDoce (sterile submicron particle docetaxel suspension) intended for the treatment of bladder cancer, it was reported yesterday.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved LOTEMAX SM (loteprednol etabonate ophthalmic gel) 0.38%, a new gel formulation for the treatment of postoperative inflammation and pain following ocular surgery.2 Compared to LOTEMAX GEL (loteprednol etabonate ophthalmic gel) 0.5%, LOTEMAX SM delivers a submicron particle size for faster drug dissolution in tears.3,4 LOTEMAX SM also provides two times greater penetration to the aqueous humor compared to LOTEMAX GEL.
According to the company, LOTEMAX SM is a new gel formulation that uses SubMicron (SM) Technology to adhere to the ocular surface and then penetrate key ocular tissues.
PTIR eliminates several longstanding limitations of IR microscopy, enabling submicron IR spectroscopy in a non-contact measurement, minimizing sample preparation, and producing spectra with no band shape distortions due to scattering effects.
