Medical care innovation through intuitive drug delivery systems

Founded in 2005, Morimoto-Pharma is an R&D-focused firm whose cutting-edge products make taking medication a bit easier.

SWALLOWING SUPPORT E-JELLY NEO

Morimoto-Pharma specializes in the development of innovative products that help people take their medication.

One of the Japanese firm’s flagship creations is e-Jelly neo, an edible gel that can be combined with tablets and capsules to make it easier to swallow them.

“Medicine can be inserted into the e-Jelly pack and it will be instantly wrapped in delicious jelly,” explains President Shuji Morimoto.

“We also have another jelly product called GT Dosage Form. It contains both a drug and jelly in the same pack, in separate compartments. You simply press on the jelly compartment to mix the jelly and drug. This is an excellent way for existing drugs to expand their market and sales.”

Morimoto-Pharma has also made drug delivery a smoother process by creating the Easy Seal Open Pack (ESOP) – next-generation packaging for tablets and capsules.



“ESOP is made using a soft transparent plastic film,” Mr. Morimoto says. “It’s larger than blister packaging, making it highly unlikely to be accidentally swallowed. And it won’t damage the gastrointestinal tract even if swallowed.”

More child-proof than blister packaging, ESOP also includes clearer product information, to avoid users throwing medicine away prematurely because they are unsure of its type or expiration date.

When it comes to drug storage and transportation, meanwhile, Morimoto-Pharma has developed a leading-edge continuous freeze-drying machine, the Morimoto-LYO, that offers clear advantages over other lyophilization technology.

“With traditional lyophilization, production times can be very slow,” Mr. Morimoto says. “The Morimoto-LYO makes it possible to produce drugs and vaccines that can be kept at room temperature with far greater efficiency.

“While traditional methods are typically batch processes, our process is continuous, so it has much higher productivity.”
