Zydis® fast-dissolve tablets are the innovator brand in orally disintegrating tablets and offers the potential for increasing the range of prescription and consumer drug products that can be formulated as a lyophilized fast-dissolve dosage form. This proprietary technology has been applied to launch an ODT vaccinethat was previously administered through subcutaneous injection. Buccal absorption, taste-masking, and patient convenience make Zydis® fast-dissolve tablets ideal for numerous therapeutic areas.
