How our capsules can support research and development

Posted by CapsCanada on 21-Oct-2022 10:06:23 PM

According to a Congressional Budget Office article, between 2010 and 2019, the number of drug innovations approved for sale increased by 60% compared to the previous decade.


With this in mind, the total spending on research and development increased by nearly 50 percent between 2015 and 2019. Many of the drugs approved in recent years are specialty drugs for small groups of people.

The constant innovation and creation of new drugs, requires activities that are grouped into:

  • Invention: research, and discovery of new methodologies.
  • Development: testing and preparation for filing FDA applications and designs for more efficient production processes.
  •  Innovation: including the development of new formulations and delivery mechanisms for existing capsules and the testing of these for additional indications.
  •  Product differentiation: to show that the new product is superior.
  •  Safety monitoring: clinical trials that the FDA may require to detect side effects that may not have been seen in trials.

Currently, companies have substantial research and development spending on clinical trials that are conducted, preparing federal requirements. As a result, changes in federal policy regarding clinical trials can significantly impact private spending on R&D. This is why an effort is made to reduce costs and expenses through new policies.

Capscanada and Clinical Trial Capsules


FM-CAPS ® are a flexible dosage form to accelerate your drug development process. These capsules help provide a more precise medication dose to each consumer, as they can contain multiple medications in a single capsule.
