An examination of all aspects of the science and art of dosage form development Integrating physical pharmacy, drug design, and drug regulation, this book examines all the key elements needed to produce effective dosage forms for drug delivery. It begins by setting a solid foundation of physical pharmacy principles such as drug stability estimation, rheology, and interfacial properties. Next, the authors explain how to incorporate these principles into product design. Lastly, the book integrates harmonized pharmaceutical development regulatory guidelines and requirements with the science and technology of pharmaceutical product design in the United States, European Union, and Japan. Integrated Pharmaceutics offers a comprehensive portrait of pharmaceutical product design, fully describing the science and art of dosage form development. Readers will find clear and thorough coverage of: Fundamental physical pharmacy principles and their role in drug product design Regulatory science section covering drug regulation, pharmacy compounding practices, manufacturing validation, and quality systems and controls Recent regulatory guidelines for quality by design, design space analysis, process analytical technology, polymorphism characterization, blend sample uniformity, stability protocols, and biopharmaceutical classification systems Each chapter includes a glossary defining key terms and a list of references leading to the primary literature in the field. Many of the chapters also feature case studies, reference appendices, and practical problems, enabling readers to apply the principles set forth in the book to solve common problems in drug product design. With its comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach, Integrated Pharmaceutics is recommended for graduate-level courses in pharmacy, the pharmaceutical sciences, pharmaceutics, physical pharmacy, drug formulation and design, and biomedicine. The book will also enable professionals in the pharmaceutical industry to apply an effective integrated approach to drug product design.

The suspension dosage form has long been used for poorly soluble active ingre- ents for various therapeutic indications. Development of stable suspensions over the shelf life of the drug product continues to be a challenge on many fronts. A good understanding of the fundamentals of disperse systems is essential in the development of a suitable pharmaceutical suspension. The development of a s- pension dosage form follows a very complicated path. The selection of the proper excipients (surfactants, viscosity imparting agents etc.) is important. The particle size distribution in the finished drug product dosage form is a critical parameter that significantly impacts the bioavailability and pharmacokinetics of the product. Appropriate analytical methodologies and instruments (chromatographs, visco- ters, particle size analyzers, etc.) must be utilized to properly characterize the s- pension formulation. The development process continues with a successful scale-up of the manufacturing process. Regulatory agencies around the world require cli- cal trials to establish the safety and efficacy of the drug product. All of this devel- ment work should culminate into a regulatory filing in accordance with the regulatory guidelines. Pharmaceutical Suspensions, From Formulation Development to Manufacturing, in its organization, follows the development approach used widely in the pharmaceutical industry. The primary focus of this book is on the classical disperse system – poorly soluble active pharmaceutical ingredients s- pended in a suitable vehicle.

This book covers a complex and developing academic scientific area. It focuses on describing the interplay between the chemistry of drug molecules and membrane transporters. It also aims to guide researchers in setting up experiments that may help in understanding the mechanisms and kinetics involved in drug absorption, transport and delivery. Starting with an introduction to the topic, Molecular Biopharmaceutics then considers the following: physico-chemical characterisation of drug candidates; membrane transport of drug candidates; describing and predicting bioavailability.

During the onset of any clinical trial there are many factors and variables to consider. Funding, time restraints, and regulatory agency guidelines are factors that often influence which variables will be studied, leaving other important information out of the study. Preformulation in Solid Dosage Form Development covers every topic of critical importance to the preformulation stages of drug development. Serving as a handbook or stand-alone reference, this text equips those in academia and the pharmaceutical industry with both basic and applied principles for the characterization of drugs, excipients, and products, and deals with the issues relating to predictability, identification, and product development during preformulation stages through Phase I of clinical trials. With contributions from an international panel of experts in the field, this guide: outlines an updated preformulation program for modern drug development issues that includes particle morphology, characterization, thermal analysis, and solubility methods contains rational designs for the structure of formulation studies covers the importance of preformulation design using artificial neural networks and computational prediction techniques, and examines the concepts of preliminary-preformulation discusses the typical drug-excipient interactions that could occur during the course of development and methods of characterization includes novel methods to determine the physical and chemical stability of new formulations reviews the structure, content, and format of the preformulation report examines the significance of drug substance physiochemical properties, in regulatory quality by design
