Impact of Excipients on Viscosity

Excipients are a substance that is often added to protein formulations to serve as a medium for the proteins or active substance in the formulation. While commonly perceived as inert and just a supplement to improve the formulation or become a diluent, adding excipients have sometimes actually created a reaction of the ingredients in the formulation and according to the NPS Medicinewise article, such reactions have resulted in various reactions in patients as well. It is adverse and hypersensitivity reactions in patients, such as a mild rash or even potentially life-threatening reactions, that are drawing more attention to the effects of adding excipients to protein formulations.
