ABSTRACT
The article reports on the acquisition of an Australian patent by Generex Biotechnology Corp. for its micellar system that delivers macromolecules through buccal lining. Excipients will form a spherical micelle of surfactant molecules which will shield the protein from digestion by buccal enzymes in the delivery system. According to Anna Gluskin, president and CEO, the primary motivation to develop the formulation was to improve patient compliance.
