MARKET BRIEF – Nothing Degrading About Saving Lives: E3 Ligands Recruiting New Drugs Into the Clinic
Marianna Tcherpakov, PhD, discusses underexploited strategies, traditional approaches that can be optimized, novel techniques beginning to emerge and pay dividends, and results propelling this field toward better clinical outcomes.
FORMULATION FORUM – Amorphous Formulations for Insoluble Drugs: Rational Design & Practical Approaches on Formulation Screening & Development
Jim Huang, PhD, discusses the issues associated with amorphous formulations, including solid state stability, chemical stability, reproducibility of API manufacturing, impurity of API, stability in aqueous solution, in vitro in vivo performance, and process and scale-up.
In conclusion of this 4-part series, PharmaCircle, in collaboration with Drug Development & Delivery, reviews and compares current Phase 3 and Registration-stage products with products first approved since 2014 in the United States, Japan, or Europe.
DRUG DELIVERY – ENHANZE (®): An Efficient Way to Optimize Biologic Therapies for Subcutaneous Administration
Michael J. LaBarre, PhD, discusses how the ENHANZE drug delivery technology has the potential to improve the pharmacokinetic profiles of co-administered drugs through increased dispersion, absorption, and bioavailability.
Marc Brown, PhD, Jon Lenn, PhD, and Jeremy Drummond, PhD, believe it is essential the lead (and potentially a back-up formulation depending on any risk factors identified) has been optimized and characterized to demonstrate it will maintain its quality and performance as well as provide the best chance of measurable success in the clinical setting.
Laurie L. Sullivan and Cheryl L. Barton, PhD, say as manufacturers expand the clinical utility and healthcare professionals become more familiar with their efficacy and safety profiles, the checkpoint inhibitor market will continue to expand, becoming the cornerstone of many cancer treatment regimens.
Jeff Browne, PhD, and Ronak Savla, PharmD, PhD, believe given the accelerated timelines associated with expedited programs, lipid-based drug formulations, encapsulated in softgel capsules, provide an attractive option for addressing the challenges facing formulators.
Jim Huang, PhD, says when a compound enters preclinical development for a GLP tox study from the drug discovery stage, formulators have innovative options on how to develop a tox and clinical formulation that ensures the success of IND and first dose in human.
GLOBAL REPORT – 2018 Global Drug Delivery & Formulation Report: Part 3: Notable Drug Delivery and Formulation Transactions and Technologies of 2018
In part 3 of this 4-part series, PharmaCircle, in collaboration with Drug Development & Delivery, offers a short overview of drug delivery and formulation transactions and includes some of the numbers that color the trends of 2018 along with some thoughts on notable transactions and technologies.
Paulo Lino, PhD, and João Henriques discuss the main development goals and present a framework for a streamlined development of amorphous solid dispersion formulations by spray drying.
