Skyepharma is an expert drug delivery company. We combine proven scientific expertise with validated proprietary drug delivery technologies to develop innovative oral and inhalation pharmaceutical products.

Over many years we have partnered with a wide range of companies, from big pharma such as GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis, Sanofi, Janssen and Roche, to medium-sized pharmaceutical companies like Mundipharma and Kyorin, and smaller specialty pharmaceutical companies. We use our know-how and capabilities, and where appropriate, apply Skyepharma’s proprietary drug delivery technologies to the development of new formulations of existing products as well as new chemical entities, in order to provide clinical benefits to patients.

Skyepharma’s Geomatrix™ and Geoclock™ technologies enable controlled and timed-release versions of orally administered therapeutics Soctec™, a novel gastric retention technology, was specifically developed for molecules requiring absorption in the stomach or upper part of the intestine.

Our inhalation technologies include formulation as well as device technologies and encompass Metered Dose Inhalers (MDIs) and Dry Powder Inhalers (DPIs).
