Speedit™ Transmucosal Film Technology

  • Speedit is an oral thin film wherein drug nano-/microparticles resides on the surface of the film.
  • Speedit™ provides fast onset, enhanced permeation, reduced variability, and high bioavailability.
  • Speedit™ offers avoidance of first pass metabolism and significant reduction in glucuronide metabolites which are predominantly excreted by the kidney.
  • Speedit™ offers low manufacturing COGS.



AV104 completely suppression of Substance P-induced pruritus in C57BL mice as captured as a function of time every 10 minutes in a model that mimics a rodent model first generated by Andoh et al. (figure on the right).

The results in Figure below show the pruritic pharmacodynamics captured by the number of scratches induced by Substance P and anti-pruritic effectiveness of AV104 when given prophylactically.
