Orally dissolving films
for dry mouth treatment

1 in every 5 people is likely to suffer from dry mouth

Xerostomia and Hyposalivation are two phenomena associated with dry mouth, or the hypofunction of the salivary glands.

They pose a major global problem, affecting approximately 20 percent of the general population, with significantly higher rates in specific populations (e.g., patients who undergo chemotherapy or radiation therapy for cancer).


Dry Mouth Seriously Affects Quality of Life

Dry mouth is a common side effect to many medications and medical procedures, such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy in cancer treatment. It may negatively affect quality of life, and may cause oral health problems such as halitosis, impaired chewing and swallowing, and difficulties in prosthesis retention.

There is evidence that lower salivary flow increases the risk of dental caries due to an absence of the physical cleaning action and buffering capacity of saliva. This increasing risk can occur at any age.

PharMedica’s Innovative Orally Dissolved Films (ODF) Technology

PharMedica’s innovative orally dissolved films (ODF) technology is a substantial differentiator for generic drugs and other bioactive substances, enabling improved delivery of drugs and nutraceuticals.

iCling™ Advanced Product for Dry Mouth Treatment

iClingTM is PharMedica’s unique and proprietary ODF for treating dry mouth disorder.

iClingTM is based on PharMedica’s adhesive polymeric delivery platform, and on the unique and propriety active saliva-producing substance.

The platform make-up is based on polymers and other excipients, which are all generally regarded as safe (GRAS), while the active substance is made of natural extracts, which regulatorily can be viewed as food additives.
