Implementing a bioavailability enhancing formulation approach can positively impact safety, efficacy, and patient adherence, leading to successful clinical outcomes. An in-depth look at how lipid-based drug delivery systems (LBDDS) with softgel dosage form can be used as a bioavailability enhancing technology for successful clinical outcomes.
A Q&A session with formulation and bioavailability experts on addressing formulation challenges for pediatric populations.
The road to take a drug compound from discovery to commercialization is long, expensive and often fraught with unforeseen challenges. While every project will undoubtedly face some bumps along its path, far too many programs hit insurmountable obstacles that require innovators to backtrack and correct their course before proceeding, further extending timelines and adding costs.
Molecules continue to get more challenging from the perspective of solubility, bioavailability, and exposure. Advances in formulation technologies continue to provide more solutions. Establishing effective communications between DS chemists and DP formulators manage the risks and maximize the rewards of transforming less soluble and less bioavailable molecules into effective new drugs.
It is critical the experts creating a drug product’s formulation are aware of any reactions that can occur between an API and a tablet’s excipients.
While the wider use of opioids has led to many benefits for patients in pain, it also has led to higher incidences of misuse, abuse, and development of opioid addiction. To address this issue without preventing legitimate patients from receiving their necessary medication, Grünenthal set out to create an abuse-deterrent formulation with a technology that creates a physico-chemical barrier to abuse and, as a result, safeguards patients from the battle of addiction.
Pharmaceutical ointments are engineered to have rheological properties important to the physical performance of the product when used by the consumer.
Moisturizing creams will be defined by their viscosity or thickness. Formulating moisturizing creams depends on the required end product consistency, influencing the choice of material to use.
Anton Paar's Generation M density meters and Abbemat refractometers deliver accurate and repeatable measurement results while providing system security for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
One tool holds a unique position among R&D informatics systems. Unlike other systems, electronic laboratory notebooks (ELNs) both produce data and consume information. An ELN’s ability to capture data, observations, experiences, and context is particularly powerful when combined with other data pipelining tools. The ability to link key pieces of data and mine experiments captured in the ELN for insights fuels true scientific knowledge management. This use case describes the broad organizational benefits that BIOVIA Workbook made possible for a global pharmaceutical company, highlighting how the system is supporting efforts to gain predictive control over key processes in Research and Development.
