BioDelivery Sciences utilizes patented and proprietary drug delivery technologies to create products and formulations that meet important patient and healthcare provider needs. Presently, our development efforts are centered on the BioErodible MucoAdhesive (BEMA®) technology.
The BEMA® drug delivery technology consists of a small, bioerodible polymer film for application to the mucosal membranes (inner lining of cheek). BEMA® films were designed to rapidly deliver a dose of drug across the mucous membranes for time sensitive conditions or to facilitate administration of drugs with poor oral (pill) absorption.
BEMA® films are designed to:
- Adhere to oral mucosa in less than 5 seconds
- Optimize delivery across the oral mucosa
- Completely dissolve within 15 to 30 minutes
