CAVAMAX® , CAVASOL® and cavitron™ cyclodextrins have the unique ability to act as molecular containers by entrapping guest molecules in their internal cavities. The resulting inclusion complexes are used in a number of applications in pharmaceutical formulations. For example, cyclodextrins increase water solubility of poorly soluble drugs to improve bioavailability, taste mask bitter actives for use in chewable and orally disintegrating tablet applications, and stabilize drug actives to inhibit light and oxidative degradation.
