HS Design, Inc. Awarded Phase II Contract from the National Institutes of Health

Mr. Michael Quinn, VP of Design & Engineering and Principal Investigator at HSD stated, “The Phase II contract helps solve the chicken and egg problem: develop a device first or wait for the taste-masked multiparticulate formulations. Pharmaceutical companies are hesitant to work on medicinal formulas without a reliable delivery device. The Phase II contract is therefore vital to the continued development of the small form-factor Sympfiny system, also known as Sympfiny 1ml.”

Pediatric cancer drugs are often dosed in very small volumes but also need to be adjusted based on body weight or a child’s size. The 1ml Sympfiny is ideally suited to this task. Sympfiny® is the first multiparticulate delivery device to dose the same as traditional liquid dispensers, creating an intuitive and user-friendly experience. Its proprietary dispensing technology is a revolutionary delivery system that enables a new generation of multiparticulate drug formulations to be delivered with high dose flexibility and with performance, features, and form factors that increase safe and effective administration of drugs.

The breakthrough system enables caregivers to store, extract, and deliver dry drugs with the same familiar technique used with liquid oral drugs. The patent-pending design allows a controlled and precise dosage and ensures all medication is dispensed directly to the child’s mouth.

“We are extremely grateful for the NIH’s continued support of our technology development,” noted Tor Alden, President of HS Design.  The NIH is making it possible for us to contribute in commercializing a truly novel way for dispensing oral pediatric cancer medication. “
