PVA for Oral Drug Delivery

PVA can be applied in multiple different approaches for solubility enhancement. From controlled release to solid dispersion technologies, PVA offers a promising solution for formulation of poorly water-soluble drugs. Through our dedication, MilliporeSigma is working to characterize this safe excipient for new innovative products and current applications.
