Tokyo, Japan – March 29th, 2018 - JRS PHARMA is pleased to announce that PROSOLV® SMCC (Silicified Microcrystalline Cellulose) is now monographed with the Japanese Pharmaceutical Excipients (JPE), joining the rest of JRS PHARMA’s complete portfolio of excipients solutions available in Japan.
This JPE monograph comprises all PROSOLV® SMCC grades manufactured by JRS PHARMA in the US, Finland, and Germany. Benefiting customers that both produce within, and export to, Japan, the JPE registration of PROSOLV® SMCC enables pharmaceutical manufacturers to use this high functionality excipient with fewer regulatory hurdles.
PROSOLV® SMCC, silicified microcrystalline cellulose, is a unique combination of microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) and colloidal silicon dioxide (CSD). This high functionality excipient requires less complex processing and has high inherent functionality, which it passes on to the drug formulation. Additionally, PROSOLV® SMCC offers excellent compactibility, high intrinsic flow, enhanced lubrication efficiency, improved blending properties, superior binding properties, and increased production capacity.
