A A

Israeli drug company Intec Pharma has signed an agreement with two leading North American dosage form manufacturers -- Canadian company BioEnvelop Agro and U.S. company Tapemark -- in order to scale up the company's manufacturing platform.

BioEnvelop has developed breakthrough technologies for the manufacture of dissolvable capsules containing active ingredients. Tapemark is a manufacturer of drug packaging systems for the medical, pharmaceutical, and consumer products markets.

Intec plans to launch a series of super-generic drugs (generic drugs with the addition of a patent-protected mechanism that gives the product as a whole renewed exclusivity) through the current manufacturing agreement.
