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.
Contributor Cindy Dubin explores how device developers and parenteral contract development and manufacturing organizations (CDMOs) are addressing current challenges, as well as advancements in customized device design, the continuous effort to incorporate safety and human factors, and how COVID-19 is shaping the future of the market.
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.
