MDS Technology old


MDS is one of the easiest way to administer a drug orally as it is convenient, cost effective, and easily carried out, which leads to higher patients’ compliance to treatment.

The patient simply places the strip on the tongue, where it instantaneously starts dissolving upon contact with saliva. The released drug is effectively absorbed by the highly permeable buccal mucosa, allowing it a direct entry into the body’s systemic circulation by evading first pass metabolism. This feature not only helps potentiate the drug’s actions but also allows for lower doses to be formulated for intended pharmacological effects.

MDS Physical Features Clinical Highlights Patient Benefits
Sugar free Instantly dissolves on contact with saliva without any additional need for water or need of chewing/swallowing No choking hazards
Vegan coating More convenient for dosing as compared to other solid and semisolid dosage forms. Increased palatability due to efficient taste masking with different flavors
Water soluble Buccal deliveries allow direct entry of the drug into systemic circulation bypassing first pass metabolism and hence a quicker onset of drug action Convenient for children, elderly, bedridden, unconscious and those patients that have other physical and psychological barriers to swallowing solid dosage forms
Non bulky Rapidly disintegrates within the oral cavity releasing the active drug quickly Can be easily administered to uncooperative and difficult patients
Non sticky Facilitates high dose precision Negligible weight and compactness, making it convenient for the patient to handle
Flavored Increases formulation stability and shelf life because the drug moiety has lesser chances of undergoing oxidation & hydrolysis Safer and quicker drug deliverance. Improves adherence to treatment
Flexible Apt for delivering nanotechnology based formulations The dosage can be taken anytime and anywhere
Tear resistant Lower doses can be administered for pharmacological effects, thus reducing drug induced side effects Easily portable with no risk of spillage and breakage

Creating New Standards for Oral Drug Delivery

An in-depth analysis of other mouth-dissolving strips indicates that Avery’s MDS is the preferred medium for most commercially prescribed drugs & specialty medicines. This is because Avery’s technology experts have succeeded where others, oral film-makers,continue to struggle. Avery’s MDS assures that drug manufacturers and healthcare professionalsneed – controlled, consistent &faster dosing, without risks.
