CONRAD is a biomedical research and development organization dedicated to improving the reproductive health of women, especially in developing countries. They have developed a first-in-class, multipurpose intravaginal ring (IVR) that combines levonorgestrel with tenofovir to provide contraception while preventing against acquisition of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV). To bring this novel concept into the clinic, CONRAD needed the support of a contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) with specialized expertise in long-acting implant and IVR development. Lubrizol Life Science – Health was able to provide CONRAD with comprehensive support throughout the project from technology transfer to manufacturing. Their experts were proactive and creative in streamlining manufacturing of the product, and they integrated quality control and assurance from the very beginning of the project. As a result, we helped CONRAD to bring a novel, life-changing product to the clinic, and they are committed to helping other organizations develop and commercialize innovative drug eluting devices (DED).
