Pernix Therapeutics has selected compliance blister packaging for its ten-day, triple combination oral therapy for the treatment of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection and duodenal ulcer disease. Comprising omeprazole delayed-release capsules (20 mg), clarithromycin tablets (500 mg), and amoxicillin capsules (500 mg), the Omeclamox-Pak is the first triple combination medication indicated to eradicate symptoms of H. pylori in just ten days now available to patients, the company reports. Other treatments take up to 14 days.
Tekni-Films, a Tekni-Plex company, is relaunching its ALU-LOOK family of blister films designed to look like cold-formed foil. The PVC film can be laminated to PCTFE for moisture barrier and can incorporate EVOH for oxygen barrier protection, says Angela Roggenhofer, sales & marketing manager. “It mimics the visual of coldformed material but offers all the advantages of thermoforming. Companies can run this film without making major machinery modifications,” she says. The pigmented film also offers protection against UV and visible light.
