Aprecia Pharmaceuticals and Cycle Pharmaceuticals Partner to Develop 3D-Printed Orphan Drugs
Aprecia Pharmaceuticals, LLC (“Aprecia”), The 3DP Pharmaceutical Company, and Cycle Pharmaceuticals, Ltd. (“Cycle”) today announced they have signed a partnership agreement to develop and commercialize orphan drugs using three-dimensionally printed (“3DP”) technology. The planned products will deliver quality-of-life improvements versus existing, approved orphan drugs, and will achieve this by utilizing Aprecia’s proprietary 3DP ZipDose® Technology platform. ZipDose® is the only three-dimensional printing technology used in a pharmaceutical drug product approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Antonio Benedetti, CEO of Cycle commented: “Many rare disease patients do not have a treatment option at all. For those rare diseases where there is an approved pharmaceutical treatment, patients continue to be burdened by sub-optimal drug formulations. Aprecia’s ZipDose ® 3DP technology can formulate fast-melt pharmaceutical products, incorporating significantly higher amounts of active pharmaceutical ingredient than any other fast-melt technology on the market. As such, this advanced technology can uniquely overcome both pill burden and dysphagia – swallowing difficulties – both of which are life-long, daily issues for so many rare disease patients.”
“We are excited to work with the Cycle team, and we see important synergies in the companies’ shared mission to address unmet needs in patient care,” said Don Wetherhold, CEO of Aprecia. “Cycle specializes in orphan drugs - they have proven that they can deliver quality-of-life improvements to rare disease patients around the world. Aprecia is fully committed to applying its ZipDose ® 3DP printing technology to address real-world, daily issues faced by rare disease patients,” he continued.
Aprecia, The 3DP Pharmaceutical Company, expects to use its ZipDose® Technology to transform the way people take medicine. Its first innovation, ZipDose® Technology can be combined with a wide variety of active pharmaceutical ingredients to create rapidly disintegrating oral dosage forms that are easy to take and easy to administer. Aprecia is committed to enhancing the patient experience through novel approaches to drug delivery that address unmet treatment needs to eliminate patient suffering and caregiver burden.

Kela: Contrary to Reports, the Basic Income Experiment in Finland Will Continue until the End of 201825.4.2018 10:31 | Tiedote
Many international media-outlets have published stories alleging that Finland is going to discontinue its basic income experiment. This information is incorrect. “The experiment is proceeding according to plan and will continue until the end of 2018”, says Professor Olli Kangas, the leader of the research team at Kela (Social Insurance Institution of Finland). There are currently no plans to continue or expand the experiment after 2018. The effects will be studied after the experiment has ended The employment effects across the whole experiment will be available by the end of 2019 or at the beginning of 2020. “The effects of the experiment will not be published while the experiment is in progress, because a public discussion of the results could influence the behaviour of the test and control groups. That would lead to skewed results”, Kangas says. The basic income experiment was launched in January 2017. During the experiment, the 2,000 participants are receiving a EUR 560 monthly bas
