How it Works

DepoFoam® consists of microscopic, spherical, lipid-based particles composed of a honeycomb of numerous, non-concentric, internal aqueous chambers containing the encapsulated drug. Each chamber is separated from adjacent chambers by lipid membranes. Following injection, the DepoFoam particles release the drug over an extended period of time due to erosion and/or reorganization of the lipid membranes. Key benefits include

DepoFoam permits systemic delivery of medications by releasing the drug into the bloodstream via the interstitial space. Locally, DepoFoam can release the drug into a body compartment, such as a joint.
