Engineered to make therapeutic molecules perform

PROSILIC®

ProSilic® is our patented bio-courier technology created to solve the fundamental limitations of a wide range of active pharmaceutical ingredients. It can improve efficacy, stability, solubility, bioavailability, release and route of administration.

ProSilic® is a fully biodegradable hybrid of porous elemental silicon (Si14), lipids and amino acids offering exceptional safety and versatility.

Increased drug stability and solubility.

PROSILIC® IS
EXTREMELY VERSATILE

  • Very high surface area (>700 m2/g)
  • Pore volume of > 1 cm3/g
  • Stable nanostructure
  • Tunable pore diameter (2-10 nm)
  • Two functional surfaces (interior and exterior)
  • Control of particle size and shapes
  • Modifiable particle surface

PROSILIC® IS
EXCEPTIONALLY SAFE

ProSilic® is designed to dissolve to a beneficial micromineral, orthosilicic acid (OSA), the bioavailable form of silicon absorbed from food. Therefore, in contrast to many other drug delivery systems, ProSilic® leaves no foreign residues in the body.
