MMX® Technology

Multi Matrix MMX technology was developed by Cosmo and is being used in the development of several products in the Aries pipeline. The MMX technology allows the delivery of active pharmaceutical ingredients into the lumen of the colon through tablets in a delayed and controlled manner that applies the active pharmaceutical ingredients to the full length of the colon.

MMX® technology manufactured tablets are coated with pH-resistant acrylic copolymers which delay the release until the tablet reaches the indicated intestinal location where they begin to dissolve. This allows for protection of the active substances from adverse pH conditions and enzymatic presence in the upper digestive tracts. The controlled release over the length of the colon not only simplifies the application for the patients but allows for the topical application of the active pharmaceutical ingredients to the whole bowel surface.

This technology may also be used for other diseases affecting the colon and can be used as a platform for applications outside the colon where the controlled release of a compound is of importance.
