70% of drug molecules face problems of poor bioavailability and instability. Nanotechnology applied to medicine can provide important progress, often by improving bioavailability and dose optimization. Researchers propose here a new formulation excipient-free and based on nanocrystals, improving biodisponibility & dose efficacy. The first indication developed for this technology is a new formulation of Etoposide, a commonly used molecule to treat several cancers, which faces those problems and usual side effects.
