"Modernizing Drug Delivery"

A New Generation of Topical Targeted Drug Delivery Technology based on

About Socotra Pharmaceuticals

To preferentially accumulate in or around disease-target cells for the functional delivery of therapeutic agents, we will introduce highly improved dermal penetration of drugs by offering a new generation of Topical Targeted Drug Delivery based on Nanocrystal technology. Our technology will increase drug dissolution rate and deeper skin penetration. Socotra Pharmaceuticals provides effective and efficient drug delivery via a topical nanocrystal drug delivery method with the highest drug loading efficiency compared to other nano-based formulations and requires a low number of surfactants for stabilization resulting in a safer product for patients to use topically.

Our Vision

To drive technological innovations that combine pharmaceutical products and processes into systems, enhancing the integrity of parenteral drugs in a way that is far superior to anything that hasn't been achieved before.

Our Mission

To become a top-quality global healthcare provider that produces the world’s most advanced solutions, driven by an ethical and transparent mindset that can be guaranteed to patients.

Problems To Solve

The oral route is the most common for drug administration owing to its advantages, like non-invasiveness, patient compliance and convenience of drug administration. However, it suffers from several limitations of first-pass metabolism, poor stability in the gastric environment, etc.

Topical Nano drug delivery has poor long-term stability and high surfactant, which causes skin irritation. At the same time, applications of nanoparticles were very limited due to their low targeting efficiency and high toxicity levels—the severe toxic side effects of anti-cancer drugs to normal tissues due to the lack of tumour selectivity

Many anti-cancer drugs usually have strong side effects, the most common being nausea and vomiting. Most of the carriers available in the market are not suitable for cancer patients.

Drugs are loaded inside nanoparticles at preparation or attached to the surface via adsorption/ absorption methods. Drug loading efficiency is determined by both the carrier and drug properties, including molecular weight, the solubility of the drug in the carrier, the volumetric size of the carrier, and chemical interactions between the drug and the carrier.

Our Solution

Socotra Pharmaceuticals will use nanocrystals to overcome the problem of poor solubility and low bioavailability because of their specific structure. The Company will provide drug delivery systems with a mean particle size in the nanometer range, typically between 10–800 nm.

The Company’s nanocrystal-based formulation has the highest drug loading efficiency than other nano-based formulations. Also, it will provide effective results in minimal doses of the drugs and can cure the illness in less time.

Nanocrystals are drug crystals with sizes in the nanometer range stabilized or surrounded by a thin coating of in-lab synthesized bio-surfactants. The Company’s product has a low quantity of surfactant, making it a better and safer product.

The Company will provide targeted drug delivery utilizing nanotechnology-based topical gels which have no adverse effect on skin integrity. It has a system of specifying the drug directly into the targeted body area (organ, cellular, and subcellular level of specific tissue) to overcome the specific toxic effect of conventional drug delivery.
