Sancilio & Company, Inc. (SCI) is an integrated pharmaceutical company that focuses on developing and marketing a variety of products, including those based on the proprietary Advanced Lipid Technologies® (ALT®) platform. The ALT® platform refers to several unique drug delivery systems designed to improve the body’s ability to break down and use lipophilic compounds such as fatty acids, hormones, several vitamins, and many active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). Because they do not dissolve in water, and instead are absorbed with fats, the bioavailability and usefulness of these potentially beneficial compounds for the human body is often limited.
Upon its founding, SCI recognized the significant unmet need within the pharmaceutical industry for a means by which lipophilic compounds could be effectively absorbed by the body. For nearly a decade, SCI’s lipid chemists, biologists, formulation scientists, and medical doctors worked to develop the ALT® platform, which increases absorption of lipophilic drugs and nutrients while mitigating the dependency on the fat content of the food (food effect) that is seen with many other lipophilic drug delivery systems. SCI leverages the ALT® platform to create unique products that, if approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), would target disorders and diseases that may actually be correctable by restoring the body’s natural lipid balance.
In addition to our primary goal of developing proprietary pharmaceutical products through the use of ALT® technology, we also offer services to third parties. SCI offers product development, manufacturing of soft gel capsules, and contract product sales. For certain development projects, SCI may partner with a third party to leverage the ALT® platform for delivery of a third party’s lipophilic compound.
SCI is headquartered in Riviera Beach, Florida, where we manufacture our products in FDA inspected cGMP facilities. In addition to our scientific pursuits, SCI believes in being a part of the local community and actively participates in several municipal and charity organizations and events.
SCI was awarded “Manufacturer of the Year” Award in 2015 by the South Florida Manufacturing Association.
