Wir sind dabei!
Wie verhalte ich mich richtig im Straßenverkehr? Die kindgerechte Beantwortung dieser
Frage haben sich die Verkehrswacht Schopfheim e.V. und der K&L Verlag zum Ziel gesetzt und ein leichtverständliches Malbuch für Mädchen und Jungen im Kindergarten- und
Grundschulalter herausgegeben. Wir finden: Das ist eine gute Sache!
Deshalb unterstützen wir das Projekt
Mit vielen auszumalenden Bildern bereitet das Buch die Kinder spielerisch auf die Gefahren
und das richtige Verhalten im Straßenverkehr vor. Leicht verständlich kommentiert und
erläutert die Schildkröte Sammy auf 36 Seiten die verschiedenen Situationen. So lernen die Kinder die Ampel kennen, erfahren, wann ein Fahrrad verkehrssicher ist oder warum ein Helm wichtig ist. Gleichzeitig können Pädagogen, Erzieher und Eltern die Abbildungen mit den Kindern besprechen und üben.
Mithilfe der Unterstützung vieler örtlicher Unternehmen können die Mal- und Arbeitsbücher kostenlos an die Kindergarten- und Grundschulkinder in der Stadt Schopfheim ausgegeben werden. Ein Engagement, dem wir uns sehr gerne anschließen.

Develco Pharma and HMNC Brain Health announce last patient being randomized in oral prolonged-release ketamine trial for Treatment-Resistant Depression!

An increasing number of people suffer from depression. It is very important to help and support these people. We are proud to announce that Develco, together with HMNC Brain Health, randomized the last patient in its proof-of-concept Phase II clinical trial of ‘Ketabon’ (KET01), an oral prolonged-release ketamine formulation for Treatment-Resistant Depression.
„The goal with KET01 is to improve the lives of patients who are not responding to standard antidepressant therapies, as well as to provide a well-tolerated antidepressant with substantially limited dissociative side effects,” said Dr. Hans Eriksson, Chief Medical Officer at HMNC Brain Health.

The planning for our new Fluid Bed Dryer started a year ago. Last week, the 3.5 ton equipment was delivered. The Fluid Bed Dryer had to be transported through the roof of the production hall, which required extremely precise work. We are proud, that through good communication and teamwork, as well as technical expertise, the new equipment was safely transported into our production building.
„The installation went very well, and everything was well coordinated,“ says Daniel Kaiser, our technical manager. The roof was already closed again in the evening. Also on the following days, everything went very well with the installation of the remaining parts. Qualification will start to be operational with the new equipment in Q2.
With our new Fluid Bed Dryer, Develco is able to produce more important medicines for patients in need.

Develco is in the annual listing of 10 companies in Europe that are at the forefront of providing Formulation Development Outsourcing services and transforming businesses in the region.

Generic medicines are an important pillar to healthcare systems around the world. Just in Europe, they are estimated to save over 100 Billion Euros per year. In our continuous pursuit to increase access to these medicines, Develco is pleased to announce the first Decentralized Procedure (DCP) closure of its Tapentadol Prolonged Release Tablets. With several other DCPs and National Registration procedures lined up, covering the full breadth of dosage strengths, Develco is well slated to be the first or amongst the first wave of launches in Europe.

Development of generic medicines is a complex process and it requires a carefully designed formulation strategy, an exhaustive set of human bioequivalent studies and thereon a scale-up & transfer to commercial manufacturing. This DCP closure from European authorities comes on the back of several BE studies performed by Develco in Europe.  

Utilizing its innovative sustained released and modified release technology, Develco has developed and is developing several other Complex Generic, Branded and Life Cycle Management Products and would continue to support access of such important medicines to patients across the globe.
