non systemic biologics

  • Non-absorbable drugs
  • Act locally
  • Do not reach systemic circulation (i.e. the intestinal lumen, skin or mucosa)

Key Benefits

  • Easier and shorter development process than other biologics
  • Ingested (as capsules or liquid suspension) or applied locally, not injected
  • Biological therapeutics present barriers to generic competition
