HORGEN, SWITZERLAND/KARLSKOGA, SWEDEN: Cambrex and The Dow Chemical Company have executed an agreement for Cambrex to contract manufacture Dow hydroxypropyl methylcellulose acetate succinate for drug solubility enhancement.

This is the final step in building on the solubilization partnership that Dow and Bend Research announced in October 2012 and it will help Dow to commercially supply solubility enabling excipients. Construction has already begun on the new operational facility at Cambrex Karlskoga with commercial product availability set for year-end 2013.

“Dow’s polymer science and application expertise, coupled with Cambrex’s capabilities positions Dow for rapid entry into the market. The AFFINISOL product platform has excellent manufacturing flexibility to match the diverse excipients needs of our customers’ pipelines,” said Bob Maughon, Senior R&D Director, Dow.
