Encap Drug Delivery awarded patents for DuoCap

Encap Drug Delivery, based in the UK, has been awarded European and US patents for the company's DuoCap capsule delivery system. DuoCap is just what it sounds like, a capsule-within-a-capsule, or a kind of Matryoshka doll of the drug-delivery world. The inner and outer capsules may contain the same active drug, but with an immediate-release formulation on the outside and timed release on the inside. Or each layer could contain different different active ingredients for combination therapies. Encap release
