SPECIAL FEATURE – Improving Bioavailability & Solubility: Chemical & Physical Modification vs. Formulation Development
Contributor Cindy H. Dubin speaks with several leading companies to explore chemical and physical modification versus formulation development, and new technologies and techniques for improving bioavailability and solubility.
Jaspreet Arora, PhD, Samantha Saville, and Brett Waybrant, PhD, focus on a controlled-release LMP formulation to identify optimum annealing conditions and to better understand the annealing mechanism.
Contributor Cindy H. Dubin highlights the techniques various excipient manufacturers are using to develop more innovative and effective ingredients to improve the performance of drug molecules.
Jason M. LePree, RPh, PhD, reviews the causes of poor bioavailability for drugs and provides an introduction to lipid-based drug delivery systems, and how the formulation approach can be used to overcome impediments to good bioavailability of therapeutic actives.
Tim Leaver explains how his company has developed a proprietary technology for the rapid development of nanoparticles and seamless scale-up for clinical studies and commercial production, and how it is transforming the development and manufacturing of a range of nanoparticle formulations from a hit-and-miss affair to a standardized process, accelerating novel nanomedicines from the bench to the clinic.
Contributor Cindy H. Dubin recently spoke with some of the leading excipient innovators to find out what types of excipients they are developing, the advantages they offer to formulations, and where they see the industry focusing throughout the next few years.
EXCIPIENT UPDATE – Solvent-Less Film Coatings: New Ethylcellulose Grade Enables Rapid Dry Powder Coating
Nick Grasman and Paula Garcia Todd, MS, present ETHOCEL HP as an innovative new product that helps customers increase productivity while still maintaining the advantages of Dow manufactured ETHOCEL, such as tight viscosity, narrow ethoxyl distribution, and reduced fiber content.
Ronak Savla, PhD, PharmD, and Jeffrey E. Browne, PhD, indicate formulation screening, development, scale-up, and commercial manufacture of LBDDSs require considerable expertise, and choosing an outsourcing partner with experience and a proven track record is critical.
SPECIAL FEATURE – Excipients: Manufacturers Look to Co-Processing as a Way of Improving Functionality
Contributor Cindy H. Dubin reports how leading excipient manufacturers are overcoming their own R&D challenges to deliver innovative excipients that address problems associated with both large and small molecules.
ALBUMIN MARKET – Global Human Albumin Market: Extra Revenues to Come Through Non-Therapeutic Applications
Aish Vivekanandan, Frost & Sullivan Analyst, reports that human albumin is widely considered as a plasma replacement or expander for therapeutic purposes. However, for over a decade, the healthcare industry has been exploring the use of human albumin as a non-therapeutic substance/excipient for commercial settings.
