EUDRATEC® PEP - An Innovative Smart Oral Delivery Technology for Proteins and Peptides
Presented By:
Firouz Asgarzadeh, Ph.D., Director Formulation and Application Services, Products and Formulations, Evonik Health Care

Most proteins and peptides are BCS class III.  To overcome their often-poor bioavailability, Evonik recently introduced a new modular platform technology for improving the bioavailability of peptides.  The EUDRATEC® PEP technology allows treatment with an oral solid form, replacing unpleasant injections and therefore tremendously enhancing patient compliance.

Trends in Small Volume Dissolution 2018
Presented By: Dan Spisak

The concept of small volume dissolution arises from the need to analytically determine the rate of dissolution from low dose, generally high potency drugs.  Novel drug delivery design has demanded more from typical official dissolution and drug release apparatus. To maintain quantitative levels of analyte during the dissolution test, a reduction in vessel volume accompanied by an alteration of compendial dissolution apparatus may be required. The need to develop small volume dissolution apparatus stems from the need to provide accurate, reliable data for decision making during drug development stages and assurance of quality when the formulation reached full-scale production and to maintain future assurance of product quality and stability. This forum will explore the use of USP apparatus and modifications to the standard USP apparatus designed to yield small volume dissolution methods with reliable results. 

Strategies for the Formation and Coating of Multiparticulates for use in modified release products using the Conical Rotor Processor

Long processing times are common in the manufacture of high potency, modified release beads. Using the Granurex©, a conical rotary system, spherical beads can be manufactured and coated in a fraction of the time required when compared to traditional processes.

Use of canine PK/ PD models in the development of differentiated drug products. 

 In development of differentiated drug products, Pharmaceutical companies often outsource animal testing to preclinical CROs for establishing bioequivalence / superiority to the RLD. This presentation will address the strategies involving canine as a best animal model for development of differentiated drug product dosage forms.
