H&T Presspart has entered a collaborative partnership with Hovione Technology to expand its drug delivery systems portfolio for respiratory care.

H&T Presspart has entered a collaborative partnership with Hovione Technology to expand its drug delivery systems portfolio for respiratory care.

The company has purchased the global rights to manufacture and commercialise Hovione's capsule-based dry powder inhaler (DPI) and has upgraded the product, naming it PowdAir Plus.

H&T Presspart chairman Peter Schmelzer said: “This is a strategically significant partnership and underlines our commitment to forging alliances that accelerate the development, global scale-up and commercialisation of novel drug delivery solutions for respiratory patients.

“This partnership supports our strategy to respond to the rapidly growing demand for DPIs across a range of needs, while it focuses on providing a solution for developing markets.”

The neat, compact and affordable PowdAir Plus features an all-plastic four-component design that enables ease of use and reduces manufacturing assembly and production costs.

"With our expertise in DPI invention, design and development, and Presspart’s mastery of large-scale industrialisation and global distribution, we are very confident about success."

The pharmaceutical firms working with H&T on PowdAir Plus will have access to its manufacturing capabilities and experience in industrialising products, while they will also acquire Hovione’s expertise in formulation and manufacturing of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs).
