Cithrol™ GMO HP (Glycerol monooleate)​

Cithrol GMO HP forms a stable viscous gel matrix in water that will release a dissolved or dispersed drug by slow diffusion. At higher water levels, lipid and aqueous domains coexist in the matrix allowing hydrophilic, lipophilic and amphiphilic drugs to be incorporated. When administered orally in the form of a gelatin capsule, glycerol mono-oleate comes into contact with the gastrointestinal fluids following dissolution of the capsule and transforms into the viscous phase, promoting sustained release of the active.
