Celebrating the best of pharma and recognizing companies that turn inspiration into innovation

(PresseBox) (Homburg, ) It has become a tradition to recognize pharma innovation at CPhI Worldwide, as CPhI Pharma awards winners driving Pharma's biggest innovations. This year, the prestigious CPhI Pharma Awards celebrate innovators from across four categories-formulation, packaging, process development, and partnering.

The winners of the 11th annual CPhI live Pharma Awards have been announced at CPhI Worldwide, Paris, France, organised by UBM Live. The annual awards showcase outstanding developments and innovations from the pharma industry's most dynamic and progressive players.

Open to the entire pharma industry, the awards honour companies that are driving the industry forward with thought leadership, unveiling top pharma innovators to global trade.

The 2014 winner for Best Innovation in Formulation was MJR PharmJet GmbH for counter-on complexes for enhanced load in nanocarriers. MJR PharmJet has developed a technology that enables the drug loading of hydrophobic nanoparticles to be increased. By forming counter-ion complexes, the solubility of the API can be improved without chemically altering it, allowing nanoparticles with an enhanced load to be formed via the company's microjet technology. The principle has been proved via a formulation of the drug ciprofloxacin for cystic fibrosis patients, creating a nanodelivery system that allows the drug to penetrate the thick mucus that forms in their lungs. The employed technology can be applied to a wide range of molecules and different markets, including nutraceuticals and cosmetics.

Chris Kilbee, Group Director Pharma at UBM Live, extended his congratulations to all the finalists and commented: "Our Pharma Awards are an exceptional platform, providing the opportunity to highlight innovations within the industry that are set to drive the pharmaceutical marketplace. CPhI Worldwide is increasingly the hub for content and industry innovations".
