Development of a Diclofenac Sodium Quick Kit for FoamaDerm™

The new regulations for pharmacies had catastrophic consequences for the ability of normal pharmacies to compound prescribed preparations for patients using drug powders. Most pharmacies have stopped to offer compounding services at all. This leaves a gap in the ability to provide timely access to needed medicines. The proposed research work will develop an individually packed drug solution which can be filled into compounding bases. Pharmacies will be able to compound with this Quick Kit again without the need to invest into expensive clean room facilities because no drug particles will be air born when a solution is filled in to a solution. With the Quick Kit pharmacies will be able to provide patients with prescribed preparations in a safe and timely manner.
