The pressing challenge pharmaceutical scientists can often be faced with is dealing with drug development candidate molecules with sub-optimal drug delivery or pharmaceutical properties. This symposium brings together international experts from both the pharmaceutical industry and academia to discuss (bio)pharmaceutical properties and strategies to optimise pharmaceutical development and minimise development impact. Small molecule NCE topics include a formulation road map for oral delivery, assessment of CMC developability using material efficiency indices, preclinical assessment of amorphous solid dispersion and case studies of the use of in the development of compounds with poor aqueous solubility, and new insights into the solubilisation, supersaturation and precipitation behaviour of APIs. Biopharmaceutical topics will include microparticle-protein interactions and strategies for optimising delivery and PK of biopharmaceuticals.
