Enteric Coated Softgels For Consumer Health Products

Coated softgel capsules provide new dosage form options for the Consumer Health market.  Different coatings can provide delayed release (to prevent release in the stomach) or protection from moisture, if needed.  A fixed dose combination product can be created where one drug is included in the coating in addition to another drug (or two) in the fill material. This could help optimize efficacy and stability.
