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.
ABSTRACT Novel nanoscale particles (Vaults) as first described in 1986, exist in the multiples of thousands in most eukaryotic cells. Having an intricate shape composed…
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,…
Mohit Kumar, MPharm, Parijat Pandey, and Harish Dureja, PhD, develop and characterize a single-unit, floating controlled drug delivery system of famotidine hydrochloride using a blend of natural polymer and synthetic polymer along with a gas-generating agent by applying Box-Behnken design.
ADVANCED DELIVERY DEVICES – Self-Administration Device Training: Incorporating New Technologies to Reduce Device Errors
Craig Baker says at its core, the ultimate goal of device training is to improve the patient experience and create value for HCPs and industry stakeholders, and improved training technologies can allow brands to engage patients and provide personalized training content based on individual patient needs and performance.
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.
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.
Richard Featherstone explains how manufacturers of combination products are being asked to provide rigorous data on the safety of product when intended users use them. These challenges are not going to diminish, but with a focused approach and some sound HF principles, manufacturers can navigate the challenges successfully.
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.
