Outsourcing Drug Development & Production: Technology-Driven Drug Delivery Systems for Small Molecules at Losan Pharma
Due to the increasing demand for drug delivery systems that are able to improve the properties of low soluble, poor permeable, or highly dosed new and existing drug substances, technology-driven CDMOs can offer a wide range of technology platforms to overcome such challenges….
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.
GLOBAL REPORT – 2020 Global Drug Delivery & Formulation Report: Part 2, Notable Drug Delivery and Formulation Product Approvals of 2020
In part 2 of this 4-part series, PharmaCircle, in collaboration with Drug Development & Delivery, focuses on notable drug delivery and formulation product approvals.
Jim Huang, PhD, discusses how understanding the properties of ASDs and their relationship to downstream product scale up, stability, and in-vivo performance is critical to successfully utilize them for drug delivery of insoluble drugs in early development and commercialization in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Sandy Munro, PhD, Nikki Willis, and Geraldine Venthoye, PhD, believe selecting the delivery device/platform on the basis of patient needs, nature of disease, and opportunities for accelerating the proof-of-concept or early clinical stages by using fast-to-clinic approaches can help to accelerate the project through later-stage development by combining the approach with seamless scalability, designing in manufacturability, and an appropriate manufacturing strategy.
BIOSIMILAR DEVELOPMENT – Guidance on Biosimilar Interchangeability: The Debate Over Drug Delivery Devices
Darren Mansell says as early experience in following this guidance has recently matured, some issues have arisen that may impede best available outcomes for patients, one of which is the question of whether “interchangeability” guidance may stifle innovation (and therefore improved patient experience) in drug delivery devices.
Keith R. Horspool, PhD, Shirlynn Chen, PhD, and Markus Koester, PhD, discuss an open innovation platform to stimulate scientific understanding, and development of potential new technologies, for delivery of compounds with challenging solubility by offering a set of more contemporary poorly soluble drugs free-of-charge for independent research activities.
Laura Brand, Vice President of Celanese’s Medical & Pharmaceutical Business, discusses her company’s drug delivery platform and the value it brings to the industry.
NUCLEAR β-CATENIN INHIBITOR – TBL1 – A Novel Target for Safe & Effective Blockade of the Nuclear β-catenin Signaling Pathway
Ruolan Han, PhD, explains how targeting TBL1/TBLR1 enables specific silencing of oncogenic Wnt target gene expression without affecting other necessary cellular functions that are disrupted when targeting higher up the Wnt pathway.
David J. Bearss, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer and Global Head of Research at SDP Oncology, discusses his company’s unique structure that has supported its robust research in the tumor immune microenvironment as well as its investigational assets being studied in this space.
