Bioavailability & Solubility
Marshall Crew, PhD, observes progress that enabled spray drying for pharmaceutical applications, as well as other progress that has enabled the solubilization technologies and approaches we use today.
LIPID-BASED DELIVERY SYSTEMS – New Approaches for Macromolecule Oral Delivery, Abuse Deterrence & Bioavailability Enhancement
Julien Meissonnier reviews the development of a broad range of advanced oral drug delivery technologies, including a toolkit of technologies based upon the broad application of lipid-based drug delivery systems for optimum solubility enhancement.
Marshall Crew, PhD, indicates that while it may seem as if today’s technologies for dealing with solubilization challenges have emerged throughout the past 2 decades, their maturation took over a century, and this process itself is an interesting study in innovation diffusion.
INTRODUCTION Soft gelatin capsules (softgels) continue to be the oral solid dosage form preferred by consumers.1 Understandably, as they are easy to swallow and digest,…
SPECIAL FEATURE – Bioavailability & Solubility: A Demand for Enhanced Technologies & Materials is Spurring Innovation
Contributor Cindy H. Dubin spoke with several contract research/manufacturing organizations on how they are successfully overcoming solubility/bioavailability challenges, such as matching APIs to formulations and choosing the best excipients.
Cecilia Van Cauwenberghe, MS, Technical Insights Senior Research Analyst, Frost & Sullivan, reports that the proliferation of lower cost microfluidics-based genomics tools offering improved capabilities and allowing more access to end-users is expected to drive this technology for pharmaceutical and biomedical research throughout the next 5 years.
Jingjun (Jim) Huang, PhD, CEO, and Founder of Ascendia, discusses his company’s unique vision and strategy to provide pharmaceutical companies with a contract research partner that can provide technologies in order to efficiently determine which approach is most suitable for a given molecule.
DISSOLUTION ENHANCEMENT – Dissolution Enhancement Through Factorally Designed Porous Solid Dispersions
Balwan Singh and Harish Dureja, PhD, use mathematical models developed in their present study to predict cumulative percentage of glimepiride from PSDs. These models can then be utilized to formulate PSDs with desired glimepiride release.
Marshall Crew, PhD, explores how the contract services and manufacturing market has responded to the opportunity presented by the rising numbers of BCS Type II/IV clinical compounds and solubilized commercial products.
Oksana Tsinman, Konstantin Tsinman, PhD, and Shaukat Ali, PhD, describe the application of a hydrophilic polymeric solubilizer in solid dispersions of a model drug carbamazepine. The scope of this study is limited to understanding of hydrophilic polymers and their behaviors on amorphous dispersions.
