Among all segmentation, the source segment has the highest potential due increasing availability of anhydrous dibasic calcium phosphate obtained from hydrochloric acid. For instance, according to an article published by the Journal Pharmaceutics on May 28, 2021, novel calcium phosphate-based starter pellets were used in development of a biphasic-release multiple-unit pellet system (MUPS) by using diclofenac sodium. The calcium phosphate was obtained from hydrochloric acid. A series of performance tests demonstrated that control of the dissolution of the drug substance from the developed formulations was related to the water solubility of their inert cores. It was observed that the anhydrous dibasic calcium phosphate-based starter pellets (DCPA) were able to control the rate of release much better than soluble sugar spheres or isomalt pellets. It can be assumed that the use of more efficient polymers or a greater amount of them would result in a decrease in the dissolution rate. In this respect, DCPA starter pellets offer a very attractive opportunity of improving productivity and controlling the dissolution rate of drugs with a smaller quantity of polymers. Calcium phosphate-based pellets appear to be a particularly promising prospect.
Global Anhydrous Dibasic Calcium Phosphate Market Cross Sectional Analysis:
Introduction of research & development activities in newer applications of anhydrous dibasic calcium phosphate by key market players in Europe region is expected to drive growth of source segment in the region. For instance, according to article published by Nanomaterials on June 8, 2023, a study was conducted to determine whether tricalcium phosphate (TCP), a food additive can be classified as nanomaterials in Europe. The physicochemical properties of TCP were characterized. Three different samples (from a chemical company and two manufacturers) were thoroughly characterized according to the recommendations of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). A commercial TCP food additive was identified as actually being hydroxyapatite (HA). It presents itself in the form of particles of different shapes (either needle-like, rod, or pseudo-spherical), which were demonstrated in this paper to be of a nanometric dimension: E341(iii) is thus a nanomaterial. In water, HA particles sediment rapidly as agglomerates or aggregates over a pH of 6 and are progressively dissolved in acidic media until the complete dissolution at a pH of 2. Consequently, since TCP may be considered as a nanomaterial on the European market, it raises the question of its potential persistency in the gastrointestinal tract. This resulted in the conclusion that the E341(iii) food additive, represented by three independent samples, satisfies the definition of a nanomaterial according to the EFSA.
