We have worked with local universities, clinical investigators and pharmaceutical companies to produce study medications. The scopes of these clinical study preparations have been for as little as a few hundred units up to thousands based on the scale of the study. The benefit to the manufacturer and study coordinators is that small quantities in early phase I trials are typically very expensive to produce. We can facilitate the rapid processing of quantities desired, in blinded or open label formats, of the study medication.

Types of study medications We have generated medications in various forms, including capsules, sterile injections, sterile preservative free eye drops, nasal sprays, transdermal creams and gels, topical sprays, suppositories, and sub-lingual drops.

Physicians often both prescribed and prepared medicines; individual pharmacists not only compounded prescriptions but manufactured medicaments in bulk lots for general sale. Not until well into the 19th century was the distinction between the pharmacist as a compounder of medicines and the physician as a therapist and clinician generally accepted and the professions developed separately. The origin of the word “pharmacy” is generally ascribed to the Greek pharmakon (“remedy”). Perth Compounding Pharmacy.
