CMIC CMO Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Minato-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director & CEO: Makoto Matsukawa, hereinafter “CMIC CMO”) and Accu-Break Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Head Office: Hollywood, Florida, President: Robert I. Goldfarb, hereinafter “ABP”) announced today that the two companies have formed a business alliance. CMIC CMO will be the exclusive agent in Japan for ABP’s flexible dosing tablet technology (hereinafter “Accu-Break Tablets”). CMIC CMO has started drug formulation and manufacturing using this technology for investigational and commercial products.
Accu-Break Tablets are bi-layer tablets with the unique technique in which the top layer contains the active pharmaceutical ingredient and the second layer is inert. The tablet is scored and may be accurately broken into precise smaller doses. This technology is suitable for the development of pharmaceutical drugs, especially narrow therapeutic index drugs, that need different dosing by the individual patient. By applying this technology, it is possible to design and manufacture tablets allowing flexible, precise and easier dosing adjustment for pediatric or geriatric patient needs.
This exclusive alliance enables CMIC CMO to deploy ABP’s technologies to Japanese pharmaceutical companies. CMIC CMO already has manufacturing facilities experienced with developing and manufacturing the Accu Break Tablets. CMIC CMO will actively provide formulation development, contract manufacturing services with Accu-Break technology for investigational products and commercial products in the future.

We look forward to entering into agreements with pharmaceutical companies in Japan to assist CMIC CMO in the advancement of personalized medicine” stated Robert I.
