May 20, 2015 – Woodland Park, New Jersey – Cytec Industries Inc. (NYSE: CYT) is demonstrating how its docusate sodium products can provide solutions for the “solubility challenges” the pharma industry is facing at the Innovations in Drug Formulation and Delivery conference in San Diego, California from May 20 to 21, 2015.  The conference is designed for pharma, biotech and medical device professionals to learn about improving solubility and accelerating a product’s time to market.

“Cytec continually adapts and implements products to meet customers changing needs,” says Maureen Mackay, Global Marketing Manager for Cytec Specialty Additives. “We understand the challenges that are presented to our customers, and we use our experience and expertise to offer recommendations on how to use our docusate sodium products to achieve the desired results in their formulations.”

Docusate sodium gives a low order of toxicity and is stable and compatible with a wide range of pharmacologically active drugs. It is used as an excipient in a variety of pharmaceutical production processes as a solubilizer, dispersant and wetting agent and in classical technologies such as direct compression and wet granulation and is efficacious in nano milling and hot melt extrusion (HME) techniques.

Cytec is the holder of the drug master file that the FDA has recently re-classified as Type IV. Docusate sodium products are pharmaceutical grade surfactants, manufactured under current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) and US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) conditions.

Cytec Specialty Additives is the leading manufacturer and supplier of this chemistry to the pharmaceutical market.
