PVA excipient Parteck MXP polyvinyl alcohol-based (PVA) excipient for use in hot-melt extrusion enhances bioavailability of poorly soluble APIs. It remains stable at temperatures in excess of 200>C and is suitable for immediate- and sustained-released formulations with API loads of 30 percent or more. PVA- based product has well characterized melt viscosity, con- tributes to strong tablets that resist alcohol and minimize risk of dose dumping, is considered GRAS by FDA, and complies with USP, EP, and JP monographs. Excipient will be added to company's Emprove program that provides online techni- cal and regulatory information about its products. MilliporeSigma, Billerica, MA.
