  • Additional Information/Comments:ONCORE™ – Making Oncology Drugs Better ONCORE™ is Handa’s proprietary drug delivery technology that was developed to improve the safety and patient compliance profiles of the Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor (TKI) class of oncology drugs. ONCORE™ employs a unique salt formulation that is capable of minimizing the pH effect of the drug in the gastrointestinal tract, which enables: * Elimination of the drug’s food effect * Elimination of the acid reducing agent/Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) co-administration restrictions, to provide better care for TKI-treated patients with prevalently comorbid GI conditions ONCORE™ can also be used to improve a TKI’s systemic absorption, resulting in: * Dose reduction * Reduced exposure of the drug in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract * Potential for extended release, once daily dosing to further increase successful outcomes by improving patient compliance
