Bioavailability & Solubility
Bob Wieden and Chun Wang, PhD, discuss how significant challenges, coupled with the complexity and diversity of new pharmaceuticals, have fueled the development of a novel polymeric drug delivery platform that overcomes a great many bioavailability and delivery obstacles.
Ameya Deshpande, MS, says for APIs that are compatible with HME, careful attention to the formulation quality attributes that include excipient selection, dosage form design, analytical testing, and stability are required to maximize the efficacy and quality of the final product.
In this month’s column on formulation development challenges, Jim Huang, PhD, discusses nanosuspensions prepared via the top-down process, ie, the wet milling process.
Jim Huang, PhD, reviews how injectable solutions offer an attractive alternative to oral dosage form due to fast onset, reproducible PK/efficacy profile, high bioavailability as a result of bypassing the oral absorption barrier, and suitability of administration under hospital setting.
The Rule of 5 suggests that, for oral bioavailability, a better chance for oral absorption is obtained when the molecules are within the parameters of the Rule of 5’. However, the pharmaceutical industry is achieving oral efficacy with drugs that exceed….
Outsourcing Drug Development & Production: Technology-Driven Drug Delivery Systems for Small Molecules at Losan Pharma
Due to the increasing demand for drug delivery systems that are able to improve the properties of low soluble, poor permeable, or highly dosed new and existing drug substances, technology-driven CDMOs can offer a wide range of technology platforms to overcome such challenges….
Alex Kerr, Sam Trotter, and Poppy Maley explain how recent advances in biopolymers and manufacturing technology now enable formulation of injectable drug products to be tailored at will to achieve a target bioavailability in a shorter development time with robust and low cost of manufacture.
Jim Huang, PhD, discusses how understanding the properties of ASDs and their relationship to downstream product scale up, stability, and in-vivo performance is critical to successfully utilize them for drug delivery of insoluble drugs in early development and commercialization in a timely and cost-effective manner.
