  • Outsourcing Solid Dose Manufacturing Trends In 2014
    Outsourcing Solid Dose Manufacturing Trends In 2014

    In 2014, the contract manufacturing market for solid dosage forms is anticipated to be $19.6B, representing 58% of the total CMO market value of $33.7B. While the market value percentage for solid dose has been drifting downward — likely related to the shift towards biologics, which are more expensive to develop and manufacture — the propensity to outsource oral solid dosage forms continues to grow modestly.

    Comparative Human in-vivo Study And The Impact Of The Dissolution Rate On Bioequivalence

    Rapid and consistent in-vivo drug dissolution is critical for drug absorption. In-vitro dissolutions tests are used to predict in-vivo disintegration and dissolution properties of drug products. The in-vitro disintegration and dissolution times of tablets and capsules can vary significantly based on their composition and processing.

  • Using QbD For Process Optimization Of A Novel Oral Solid Dosage Form
    Using QbD For Process Optimization Of A Novel Oral Solid Dosage Form

    As stated in the International Conference on Harmonisation Harmonised Tripartite Guidance on Pharmaceutical Development, ICH Q8 (R2), “The aim of pharmaceutical development is to design a quality product and its manufacturing process to consistently deliver the intended performance of the product.”1 Several tools are available as guidance issued by FDA such as “Quality Systems Approach to cGMP Manufacturing”2 that includes ideas such as Quality by Design (QbD) in the development process. This guidance, amongst others, lay the framework for expectations of regulatory reviewers in their examination of client submittal documentation.
