DSM is a global leader in biomedical materials science – experience that we are now using to create advanced sustained release drug products as implantable or injectable delivery forms. DSM offers two proprietary, highly versatile polymer technologies which serve as platforms for the development of long-acting formulations of bioactive ingredients. ​

Bioresorbable Polymer Platform

Our bioresorbable PolyEsterAmides (PEAs) provide formulators the ability to develop sustained release systems of small molecule  drugs and biologics for systemic and site-specific parenteral drug delivery. Release duration can be regulated from days to, for many drugs, more than six months.

Non-resorbable Polymer Platform

Our biomedical polyurethanes enjoy a long successful clinical history and give formulators a proven, customizable platform from which to create delivery of medications for systemic drug delivery with duration of several days to multiple months.  DSM’s extensive polymer expertise allows customization of both the bulk and surface chemistries for targeted compositions based on the pharmaceutical attributes and hydrophilicity requirements.
