FORMULATION FORUM – A Quick Approach for Evaluation of Drug-Excipient Compatibility: Case of Acetylsalicylic Acid
In this study, the authors monitor acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) hydrolysis in different formulations using UPLC and TAM with the objective of comparing these methods for agreement, speed, and efficiency in predicting drug stability. In parallel, they assess the impact of the excipient choices on the stability of the ASA.
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….
Contributor Cindy Dubin speaks with several innovative excipient companies that assert novel excipients – agglomerated, co-processed, and multifunctional – actively and safely affect formulation stability, solubility, and bioavailability as well as foster faster drug disintegration.

FORMULATION DEVELOPMENT – The Role of Excipient Selection in the Development of Orally Disintegrating Tablets
Torkel Gren, PhD, reviews the benefits that orally disintegrating products can bring to patients and developers and assesses the impact that excipient selection can have on the development of successful products.
For each participating company, this section presents a detailed summary highlighting their core technologies, capabilities, technologies, and services.
Jim Huang, PhD, reviews how a pediatric formulation should consider the following factors: difference in physiological and pharmacokinetic of patient populations, dosage form selection, route of administration, dose accuracy, dose flexibility, drug and excipient tolerability (safety and toxicity), patient compliance (palatability/swallowability), stability, and drug accessibility.
Esay Okutgen, PhD, Alper Orhan, MSc, and Josef Bossart, PhD, believe with the 30-year anniversary of the first product approval using PEG (polyethylene oxide polymer) conjugation, it seems an appropriate occasion to review the evolution of the technology (PEGylation) and subsequent product approvals.
FORMULATION FORUM – Application of Captisol® Technology to Enable the Formulation of Remdesivir in Treating COVID-19
James Pipkin, PhD, Vince Antle, PhD, and Rebecca Garcia-Fandiño, PhD, explain why more Captisol® than ever is required to meet Gilead’s bold goals of making remdesivir available to COVID-19 patients in the US and to hundreds of countries around the world.
