  • News Pandemic and transformative technologies fuel growth in pharma outsourcing sector: CPhI North America panel

    Transformative technologies and the opportunities afforded by the COVID-19 pandemic have spurred investment in the life sciences outsourcing sector, according to a panel of industry experts speaking at CPhI North America on Monday.
  • News 4 Factors Affecting Solubility of Drugs

    Bringing a new drug—or a new formula—to market is an exciting time for pharmaceutical companies, but getting the formulation correct can be challenging. Low aqueous solubility is a top concern encountered with formulation development of new chemical entities (NCEs). Improper drug solubility can lead to suboptimal drug delivery and absorption, resulting in ineffective drug efficacy and side effects. That's why solubility of drugs must be evaluated in the early stages of drug discovery.
  • News Formulation Forum: Nanosuspension Dosage Forms

    Nano-formulation of poorly water-soluble drugs has brought two proven benefits to commercial drug products. One is it enhances drug dissolution and oral bioavailability. Second, nano-formulation increases drug loading and release duration for parenteral drug delivery. In the June issue of issue of Drug Development & Delivery, Ascendia Pharma CEO Jim Huang, Ph.D., discusses one method of preparing nanosuspensions in his Formulation Forum column.
